As long as you use the components properly, they should last 20 years.

That is assuming that you bought a quality product-- 20+ years should be no problem. If you bought a big box special, expect 10 trouble-filled years. I'd also highly recommend the lever operated blinds over those that use the magnet and rope setup.

What brands have the lever operated blinds? We looked at Pella and Wasco so far, but didn't notice how they were operated... /threadjack

Pella does have a similar system on their wood doors, as does HiMark/Okna on their vinyl. I am not sure of the type that Wasco uses.
