Easy to install, affordable, and wide selection - that is why Mid-America custom exterior shutters are so popular. In fact, they are the world's best-selling exterior shutter brand. Made from weatherproof fade-resistant vinyl, these shutters are built to stand the test of time and they are backed by a 40-year transferable product warranty.
L7-C style double-wide vinyl shutters are made to look like bi-folded shutters and are just right for windows that are 50" wide or wider. These window shutters are custom made by hand and come complete with a decorative cathedral top design. There are 4 wide shutter widths available - 20 1/4 inches, 25 inches, 29 1/2 inches, and 31 inches. And they can be ordered in quarter inch increments from 22 to 144 inches in height.
With 18 molded-through colors and one paintable type of vinyl available, you are sure to find the right match for your home's exterior trim. Adding black plastic decorative shutter hinges adds the perfect finishing touch to your exterior vinyl shutter installation.
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
- Can these exterior shutters be mounted over the top of a window at an angle like Bahama shutters or Burmuda shutters?
No. Vinyl shutters are for decorative purposes and are meant to be permanently fastened to the outside wall. They are not strong enough to be mounted with Bahama shutter mounting hardware to cover the window.
- 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.
