Decorative vinyl exterior shutters are a maintenance-free solution to your exterior window decorating needs. Mid-America makes the most popular brand of exterior vinyl shutters. Why? Because there is a wider selection of styles, sizes, and colors available than any other manufacturer. Custom fabricated from a weatherproof vinyl copolymer, these outdoor shutters are built to last and backed by a 40-year transferable product warranty.
Style L7-S shutters are the best solution for decorating your extra wide picture windows, and are recommended for all windows that are 50 inches or wider. Although these vinyl shutters are non-functional, they are made to look like bi-folded window shutters. These exterior vinyl shutters can be ordered in widths that are 20 1/4", 25", 29 1/2", and 31" wide, and in heights 22" to 144" in 1" increments, giving you the flexibility to adorn nearly any large window with shutters.
And with 18 pre-colored shutter styles and one paintable type of plastic available, you have the versatility to match nearly any home's exterior paint color scheme. Add black decorative hinges for an authentic colonial shutter 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
- 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.
