Mid-America window shutters are the world's most popular brand. And with so many colors, sizes, and styles available, it is no wonder why. Made from a weatherproof fade-resistant polypropylene (a durable type of vinyl rated for outdoor use), Mid-America window shutters are built to stand the test of time and they are backed by a transferable 40-year warranty.
Style J4A joined board and batten window shutters are the best solution to your 1/2 round or elliptical arch windows when you decide board and batten shutters are right for your home. In fact, these vinyl shutters look great on both arched windows and rectangular windows. J4A custom shutters are available in quarter inch increments from 18" to 144" in length.
There are 18 permanent pre-colored shutter styles available and one paintable shutter style, giving you the flexibility to match your vinyl window shutters with virtually any home's paint color scheme. You have a choice of mounting hardware - choose patented Shutter-Loks for a quick permanent installation or color-coordinated painted metal screws for a removable installation. Add our black plastic decorative hinges to your window shutters for an authentic colonial look.
Mid-America custom vinyl shutters are made from discrete injection-molded plastic parts. The parts are injection-molded in specific widths at the Mid-America central factory. We then cut to height and join the parts using factory-supplied ultrasonic welding equipment. The end result is a strong joint that won't come apart even under the most stringent weather conditions. Each shutter is then hand inspected to ensure high quality construction before it is shipped.
Important Measurement Information
The height measurement of your J4A window shutters is determined by adding 6 1/2 inches to the window measurement.
The window measurement depends on the type of window you are installing the shutters on. For rectangular or elliptical shaped windows, measure from the bottom of the window to the top corner of the window, including the window trim.
For half round windows, measure from the bottom of the window to the point where the window starts to arch including the window trim.
Adding 6.5 inches to this height will give you the J4A vinyl shutter height measurement you need to enter into our website. If you are planning to install the vinyl shutters with the long side toward the window, it is not necessary to add 6.5 inches to the window height measurement.
Remember - measure twice and order once!

before placing your

If you would like to paint the shutters, order color #030 Paintable. None of the other Mid-America
colored vinyl shutters are paintable and attempting to do so will void the product warranty.
Frequently Asked Questions
- What are the advantages of vinyl shutters over wood shutters?
The color-through molded vinyl shutters are easy to install, easy to clean, do not warp, crack, fade, peel, split, or rot. Exterior vinyl shutters also provide better resilience than wood shutters under harsh conditions, such as near the ocean or in areas that receive heavy rainfall.
- Do I have to assemble the board and batten shutters?
When ordering from ShutterContractor.com, all of our exterior vinyl shutters come fully assembled and sonically welded. There is no assembly required. This is not true when ordering from many other exterior shutter outlets.
- How do I remove the Shutter-Loks from the vinyl shutters once they are in place?
Slide a chisel behind the shutter until it comes in contact with the Shutter-Lok. Make sure to keep the sharp edge of the chisel away from the wall. Give the chisel a sharp tap with a hammer and it will cut through the Shutter-Lok. After the shutter is removed, shear the remaining part of the Shutter-Lok flush with the surface and bore out the shank with a drill. Fill the hole with silicone to weatherproof. See our Vinyl Shutter Removal Instructions for additional information.
- 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.
