ABOUT VINYL SHUTTERS
Operating vinyl shutters, when hinged and fitted with appropriate shutter hardware, are capable of being opened and closed, and can provide additional security as well as being decorative. Other vinyl shutters are fixed to the wall, and are purely for decorative purposes. Exterior shutters are usually made of wood or vinyl; they may also be made of aluminum. Vinyl shutters are available in a wide range of colors. They do not require painting, but will fade gradually over time.
