With the wide selection of styles, colors, and sizes available from Mid-America, it is no wonder they are the world's most popular brand of exterior vinyl shutters. Made from weatherproof polypropylene (a durable type of vinyl rated for outdoor use), Mid-America exterior shutters are built to stand the test of time and backed by a transferable 40-year product warranty.
Style S5 board and batten exterior shutters are made for windows that are 50" or wider. They are available in quarter inch increments from 18" to 144" in height and will be custom built to your specifications.
With 18 molded-through colors and one paintable style of vinyl available, you have the versatility to match practically any house trim color. You also have a choice of which shutter mounting hardware to use. Choose patented Shutter-Loks for a quick permanent installation, or use color-coordinated painted metal screws for a removable shutter installation. Add decorative hinges for the perfect finishing touch.
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.

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.
