Want to paint your own shutters?

  1. For Vinyl: Order #049 Paintable and follow instructions below
  2. For Wood/Composite: Order #000 Natural or #999 Primed Only and follow instructions below
  1. Lay the shutter face up on a clean, flat surface.
  2. Measure 2 inches down from the top of the shutter and up from the bottom of the shutter and mark a spot in the center of the side rail. Mark each side rail at the center/center. (SEE FIGURE #1)
  3. Drill a 1/4” inch diameter hole at each of the marks. (SEE FIGURE #1)
  4. Position the shutter on the house next to the window. Using a suitable marker, mark the mounting hole locations on the building.
  5. Remove the shutter and, where marked, drill a 1/4” inch diameter hole through the Wood, Vinyl or Aluminum siding only. *Do not drill into the wall*
  6. If the wall is Wood
    • Drill a 1/8” inch diameter hole, 1 3/4” deep into the wall.

    If the wall is Masonry or Brick

    • For Masonry or Brick you will need a screw anchor for a #10 screw. The type of anchor purchased will determine the diameter of the hole. Follow the anchor manufacturer’s instructions for installation
  7. Position the shutter on the house next to the window and fasten with the metal screws provided.
    *Be careful not to over tighten the metal screws or the shutter will become distorted*
    *We suggest using a Hand Screw Driver rather than a Power Drill*
  8. Repeat this process for all remaining shutters.
