Do I Need To Remove The Trim Before Putting In Shutters? That’s up to your own taste. If you want to keep the trim you already have, we can build your shutters to fit with your current trim. If you prefer our shutter frames, 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 choose the best shutter to fit what you have in mind for your space.
