Mid-America exterior vinyl shutters are the world's best-selling brand. This is because Mid-America gives you more choices than any other vinyl shutter company. Made from weatherproof fade-resistant vinyl (a durable type of plastic rated for outdoor use), Mid-America exterior vinyl shutters are built to stand the test of time and they are backed by a 40-year transferable product warranty.
With this style of raised panel vinyl shutter, you can have the shutter mid rail built at nearly any vertical position between the top rail and the bottom rail. Simply choose the mid rail position measurement from the top of the shutter to the top of the shutter mid rail from the dropdown. Or to get a consistent look on multiple sizes of shutters, use our mid rail calculator. You can order style P3 shutters in widths of 9 1/4, 12, 14 1/2, 16 1/2, and 18 inches and in quarter inch increments from 22 to 110 inches in height.
Your options for shutter colors are immense - you can choose between 18 pre-colored shutter styles or 1 paintable shutter style, giving you the flexibility to match virtually any house paint color scheme. Choose your shutter mounting hardware - you have the choice of patented color-coordinated Shutter-Loks or painted metal screws. Add decorative black plastic shutter hinges to the installation for 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.
- 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.
