Putting vinyl exterior shutters on your home is a joy when you choose Mid-America shutters. Mid-America gives you more choices than any other vinyl shutter manufacturer. Made from a weatherproof fade-resistant copolymer (a durable type of plastic rated for outdoor use), Mid-America exterior shutters are the perfect choice for shoppers looking for economy and selection.
Style P4 vinyl shutters consist of three equal raised panels which give your window exterior a balanced look and have more elegant styling than those exterior shutters with only one mid rail. Custom crafted by hand, they can be ordered in 9 1/4, 12, 14 1/2, 16 1/2, and 18 inch widths and in 1/4 inch increments from 33 inches to 144 inches in height.
With 16 molded-through colors and one paintable style of polymer available, you have the flexibility to match virtually any house color scheme. You have your choice of mounting hardware - choose patented Shutter-Loks or painted metal shutter screws for your installation. 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.
NOTE: Due to the way vinyl shutters are constructed, the mid rails may not be placed at the exactly 33% and 66% of the shutter height. The percentages in the product title are only intended as a way to describe this shutter style, not as an exact specification.

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.
