Should You Repair or Replace Your Window Blinds?

If you have window blinds and find that they’re damaged or broken, you will have at least 3 options. You can leave them as is, you can fix the damage, or you can get new blinds. The first option, while the most convenient, is the worst idea. If you do nothing, the problem will only get worse and you’ll have an even bigger problem on your hands in no time. The only two live options include either fixing the problem or buying new window blinds in Reno, NV.

What you’ll find is that determining what to do will require you to consider a few things.

Consider the Extent of the Damage
How much damage is there? If the extent of the damage is just a missing slat or a bent slat, it shouldn’t take up too much time or money to replace the missing or bent slat. But if the damage involves the opening or closing mechanism, that’s where things can get dicey. You’ll want to consider how much it will cost to fix it versus how much it would cost to buy new blinds. If your current blinds are old and tattered, fixing them might not make much sense from a dollars and cents perspective. It might be best to replace them.

Consider the Overall Condition of Your Blinds
Are your blinds in really good shape overall? If they’re relatively new and there’s a broken slat, you might simply decide that a repair is the best option. While blinds won’t last as long as plantation shutters, that doesn’t mean that they won’t serve you well for a long time if taken care of. So it might make sense to maintain the blinds you have if they’re relatively new or are otherwise in pretty good condition.

Consider How Much You Spent for Them
Did you go all out and buy top-of-the-line window blinds? It will probably be worth your while to invest into fixing them rather than replacing them with new blinds. Blinds that you buy at a higher price point will be worth investing in, so you’ll want to focus on repairing them as needed. Also consider that your warranty might make repairing them easier on your wallet.

Consider the Bigger Picture
Will you be replacing your windows anytime soon? Instead of repairing damaged blinds, you might simply decide to replace your old blinds with new blinds as part of a replacement window project. In this case, it might not be worth your while to fix blinds that should probably be changed anyway.
