Can Your Windows Have Plantation Shutters?

Almost any window can have shutters installed. Some are more challenging than others.

First, does your window have trim surrounding it?Trim is wood 3 or more inches wide forming a frame around your window on the wall surrounding the window. Some windows have trim, some only have the dry-wall surrounding the window.

Second, does your window have depth?It is important to determine how much depth you have in your window. This is the distance from the wall in the room to the window.

Third, does your window have a sill?This is a shelf at the bottom of the window with an apron beneath it. This shelf sticks out beyond the wall from the window.

Begin by examining your windows closely. Look for any unusual trim, cranks or levers that might interfere with a shutter.

Your Windows Determine the Method of Installation

Windows with trim and no depth.
If your window has a frame trim around it, but has little or no depth (less than 3/4" depth), any shutter will have to be mounted in a frame on top of the window trim or built out on the wall surrounding the trim.

Windows with no trim and no depth.
If your window has no trim, only dry wall, your shutters can be installed with ez install frames that mount on the wall around the window. These frames can be three sided or four sided depending on whether your window has a sill.

Windows with trim and depth.
If your window has trim around it but has an inch or more depth, your shutter can be mounted with a hanging strip and the trim on the window serves as a frame around the shutters.

Consider the EZ Face Mount Frame

For windows with no trim, only the dry wall surrounding the window, there is the EZ Face Frame. This frame sits on the drywall around the window and provides a trim for the window as well as a frame for the shutter.

The EZ Face Frame has a face strip which is removed to allow the frame to be screwed to the wall. After the shutter panels are installed, the face strip is replaced and the screw heads are covered, giving a completely finished look.

These Shutters have a large face mount frame.

How to Price Your EASY SHUTTERS

Pricing EASY SHUTTERS is easy.

Figure the square footage of your window.

Measure the length times the width of window opening in inches. Next, divide this figure by 144.

The total is your square footage.

Round up to the next whole number.

Give us a call at 245-8680 and we will go from there.

Example. 36 x 72 = 2592 / 144 = 18 sq. ft.

Hanging Strips for Windows With Trim and Depth

If your window has trim around it, and you have at least an inch of depth, the hanging strip is the easiest way to install. This strip is installed on each side of the window and wrap hinges, which attach to the outside edge of the shutter panel and then go around to the back of the shutters, attach to the hanging strips. The hinges are adjustable and allow the panels to meet flush in the center.
