Mid-America's standard-size Master Shutter® line is a great way to make decorating your home economical. Standard shutters are premade and injection-molded in one piece. While this means you won't have as many options as with custom shutters, the cost savings is significant.
Style ML Master louver shutters are similar to the L1 style custom louvered shutters
. You can even mix and match them to save money on the windows that standard shutters fit on while still maintaining a perfect fit on your other windows. Standard louvered shutters are available in 12" and 14 1/2" widths and in heights of 25", 31", 36", 39", 43", 48", 52", 55", 60", 64", 67", 72", 75", and 80".
There are 16 molded-through permanent colors and one paintable type of vinyl available, giving you the flexibility to match your louvered shutters with virtually any home's trim colors. You can mount standard-sized shutters with shutter clips for a "hardware free" look, or you can use patented Shutter-Loks. Add our black plastic decorative shutter hinges for an authentic colonial look.
Mid-America standard vinyl shutters are injection-molded in one piece at the Mid-America central factory. There are no joints that can come apart. This is the primary reason why only certain sizes are available - it would not be financially viable to build a mold in every conceivable shutter size.
The shutters are then placed in a warehouse where they are inventoried until they are ordered. This is why standard sized shutters are often referred to as "stock shutters", "premade shutters", or "one piece shutters".

before placing your

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.
