Description
Mid-America makes the world's best selling exterior shutters. And with so many available sizes, styles, and colors it is no wonder why. Made from weatherproof fade-resistant polypropylene (a durable type of vinyl rated for outdoor use), Mid-America vinyl exterior shutters are built to last and covered under a 40-year transferable product warranty.

J5-Z style Mid-America board & batten exterior shutters are not available from anyone else. This exclusive custom shutter design was created in-house by our fabricators and we build and ship them directly to you. These board & batten shutters are covered by the same 40-year warranty as our other Mid-America products. They are available in 1/4 inch increments from 18 inches to 144 inches in height.

With 15 molded-through colors and one paintable type of vinyl available, you will be able to match your exterior vinyl shutters with virtually any home's exterior colors. Choose between patented Mid-America Shutter-Loks for a quick permanent installation, or painted steel screws for a removable exterior shutter installation. Adding our black plastic decorative hinges gives your vinyl shutter installation a professional-looking finishing touch.

Each board & batten vinyl shutter pair consists of one forward "Z" and one reverse "Z" to complement your windows in an architecturally correct style.

Construction

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.

NOTE: Please do not rely on the colors that are displayed on the screen. To get an exact color match, we strongly recommend ordering a color sample before placing your order for custom board & batten shutters.
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.

Did You Know...
Exterior shutters were once an indication that the homeowner was too poor to afford glass windows. However, times have changed. When the Spanish colonized the Americas, they brought with them their own concepts of architecture including exterior window shutters. During the slave trade era window shutters changed drastically in form from the shanties in the Bahamas to the plantations in the South to townhouses in New England and became a status symbol for the wealthy. Today exterior shutters are still a common addition in affluent neighborhoods.
