No vinyl shutter product in the world sells like Mid-America brand exterior shutters. This is because there are so many options when choosing your style, size, and color. Made from weatherproof fade-resistant vinyl, Mid-America exterior shutters are built to stand the test of time and covered by a lifetime product warranty.
Style LPL Mid-America shutters are not available anywhere else. This exclusive decorative shutter design was created in-house by our fabricators and we build and ship them directly to you. This design is covered under the same lifetime product warranty as our other Mid-America vinyl shutters. Available in 12 inch, 14 1/2 inch, 16 1/2 inch, and 18 inch widths and heights from 22 inches to 110 inches in 1/4 inch increments.
Please note that due to limitations in the vinyl shutter manufacturing process, LPL shutters that are 65 inches or less will have 4 louvers on the top and 4 louvers on the bottom. Exterior shutters that are greater than 65 inches in height will have an equal number of louvers added to the top and bottom. The maximum raised panel size is 52 inches in height.
LPL style shutters are available in 15 colors in addition to one paintable type of vinyl, giving you the flexibility to match virtually any house trim colors. Add our decorative plastic shutter hinges 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.

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.
- 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.
