Frequently Asked Questions
  • 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.

Did You Know...
Window shutters were originally created as window covers to literally "shut out" the sun, wind, and cold because hand blown glass was too expensive and fragile for the common person to afford. Most of those first shutters were latched on the inside and opened into the home's interior. Over time glass became more widely available and the shutters were redesigned for the exterior of the house to protect the glass which was still relatively expensive.
