Should I Remove The Trim Before Installing Shutters? The answer will depend on your personal style. If you want to keep your trim in place, we’re able to build custom shutters to match your current trim. If you like our shutter frames better, then you can remove the trim—but it is not a requirement for shutters. If you want to go without trim or replace your trim, we’ll help you pick the right shutter to match what you have in mind for your space.
