Vinyl shutters by Mid-America are a made from a weatherproof fade-resistant polypropylene (a durable type of plastic for outdoor use). And with so many colors, sizes, and styles available, it is no wonder Mid-America vinyl window shutters are the world's most popular brand. Built to withstand the elements, Mid-America custom plastic shutters are backed by a 40-year warranty that can be transferred to the new owner should you sell your home.
Mid-America style P1 exterior vinyl shutters are a great choice for smaller windows because they have no mid-rail and the height is limited to 55 inches. They are custom made to your specifications and come in sizes 9 1/4, 12, 14 1/2, 16 1/2, and 18 inches in width and 18 to 54 inches in height. Style P1 vinyl shutter heights can be specified in 1/4 inch increments.
With 16 molded-through colors and one paintable style of polymer available, you have the flexibility to match virtually any house colors. Adding faux decorative shutter hinges to your vinyl shutters will give them the perfect finishing touch.
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.
