Painted steel screws are commonly used by building contractors to install external shutters. They are great when you know you will be able to mount your vinyl external shutters into studs or other wooden surface. If the outside wall is made of stone, concrete, vinyl, brick, or another material that will require anchors, you might be better off using Mastic shutterplugs.
Mastic painted steel screws are color-coordinated to match Mastic external shutters and they are available in 15 pre-painted colors. Of course, you can paint these screws if you change your mind about the color of your external shutters later.
For external shutters that are 55" and less, Mastic recommends using 4 screws to mount each shutter (2 bags per shutter pair). Vinyl shutters 55" and over require 6 painted steel shutter screws each (3 bags per pair).

Frequently Asked Questions
- My exterior wall is uneven. How do I install my exterior vinyl shutters?
You can use ferrules (a short cylindrical pipe) as standoffs to keep your vinyl shutters stable. Simply paint them, trim to size, and mount them behind your exterior shutters. Do not to put wood blocks behind the vinyl exterior shutters because they will rot fairly quickly.

|Did You Know...
Window shutters were originally created as window covers to literally "shut out" the sun, wind,
and cold because hand blown glass was too expensive and fragile for the common person to afford.
Most of those first shutters were latched on the inside and opened into the home's
interior. Over time glass became more widely available and the shutters were redesigned for the
exterior of the house to protect the glass which was still relatively expensive.
