Do I Need To Remove The Trim Before Putting In Shutters? The answer will depend on your own taste. If you want to keep your trim in place, we can build your shutters to complement your current trim. If you like our shutter frames better, then you can remove the trim—but it’s not a necessity. If you’re trying to go trimless or replace your trim, we can help you find the best shutter to fit what you have in mind for your space.
