With the wide selection of styles and colors of vinyl shutters available, it is no wonder that Mid-America is the world's best selling decorative exterior shutter. Made from weatherproof fade-resistant polypropylene (a durable plastic for outdoor use), Mid-America vinyl window shutters are built to stand the test of time and backed by a 40-year transferable limited product warranty.
Mid-America style L1 louvered shutters are our most popular style, complete with a decorative cathedral top design. These louver vinyl shutters are custom-built by hand. They come in sizes 5 3/4, 8, 9 1/4, 11, 12, 13, 14 1/2, 16 1/2, and 18 inches wide and can be ordered in quarter inch increments from 18 inches to 144 inches in length.
There are 18 molded-through permanent colors and one paintable type of vinyl available, giving you the flexibility to match your louvered exterior vinyl shutters with virtually any house color scheme. Add plastic decorative 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.
