Vinyl window shutters can quickly change the entire look of your home’s exterior. Unlike many curb appeal improvements, vinyl window shutters return nearly 100% of their cost in increased home value.
Why choose vinyl window shutters
Vinyl window shutters are decorative exterior accents and mimic the look of functional wooden shutters for visual interest. Available styles include louver, raised panel and board-and-batten. Shutters may be flat-topped or arched to complement the window.
Buying vinyl window shutters
Depending on the quality, style and size, vinyl window shutters cost between $35 and $200 or more per pair. They can be custom ordered either online or through your local home improvement store. Vinyl window shutter manufacturers offer a variety of colors. Some vinyl window shutters can even be painted to match the exact color of your home’s trim.
Installation and maintenance
Nonfunctional shutters are permanently mounted to exterior walls with spikes or screws. Moderately skilled homeowners can install these shutters with relative ease. Compared to wooden shutters, vinyl window shutters require little maintenance and do not require painting.
