Board & Batten Vinyl Shutters

  • Decorative exterior vinyl board and batten shutters with two colors.
  • Exterior vinyl brown board and batten shutter.
  • Vinyl board and batten exterior shutters.

Vinyl board and batten shutters are built to replicate the simple contour of practical farmhouse panels. Each shutter is constructed using vertical boards and horizontal cross-beams called battens. Decorative vinyl shutters provide color, depth and character without the functional aspects of wood. The molded vinyl components have an embossed wood grain surface offered in 19 standard colors. Add definition by using a base color for the boards and a different accent color for the battens.

Board and batten vinyl shutters are an affordable way to significantly enhance the appearance of your house. Board and batten panels complement many home styles with a traditional concept and rustic charm.

Board & Batten Configurations

The concept of vinyl board and batten shutters is simple. Assemble 2-8 vertical boards braced with horizontal (and sometimes diagonal) battens. The boards can be spaced with open or closed weave in 20 different configurations. An open weave incorporates a small gap between vertical members.

Most exterior shutters are rectangular in shape with a straight top. However, some windows with a curved top require an arch top shutter to resemble the contour. Arch top shutters have a curved stile that gradually descends from the shutter peak on one side to eventually intersect the vertical portion of the opposite side. Often, the arch is a 1:1 ratio, meaning the distance from the top point to where the arch begins is equal to the width of the shutter. This scale works for windows that incorporate a half circle at the top of a rectangular bottom, the most common type of round top window. Some arch top windows are not perfect and employ a curve that requires a special profile. A springline measurement is required to construct a custom arch top shutter.

Vinyl Shutter Options

Two, three, four, five, or six cross battens are used to give distinction. Some styles use diagonal boards in either a z-pattern or x-pattern common on country homes or barns. Vinyl shutters are sold in pairs, so unbalanced designs (including arch tops, z-pattern, and slant tops) will receive two mirror image panels. Vertical boards in some styles can be of different lengths to give a completely original appearance.

The durable polypropylene material is heat welded and stapled tight together with molded wood grain surface texture to effectively mimic the look of wood.  A select number of common shutter widths offered in regular intervals pair with custom heights in one-quarter inch increments up to 97”. The width determines the number of boards that are used. All ornamental vinyl shutters have a hollow open back that gains rigidity when affixed to the wall. The material is weather-resistant, water-proof and has an extended life expectancy.

Board & Batten Vinyl Shutter Colors

Nineteen standard outdoor colors coordinate well with both mature and newly constructed homes. Vinyl black shutters are definitely the most popular and widely installed. Black shutters complement existing features of the house while remaining neutral in tone. White and grays work in a similar fashion to promote a unification of all components of the building.

Blue, brown and green shutters may garner greater prominence but also highlight the windows and draw attention to the front door. Red shutters are the ultimate accent and will catch the eye. Pre-colored shutters should not be painted. The “Paintable” designation is fabricated from Polystyrene and arrives ready to finish. Most major paint manufacturers have compiled collections of exterior house colors that complement one another. We encourage you to find an arrangement that works best for your architecture style, geographic location and personal taste.

One color can be used for an entire panel, or two colors can be selected for distinction between the vertical boards and cross battens.

Vinyl Shutter Installation

Vinyl shutters can be secured on a variety of house surfaces. We provide shutter spikes or screws, depending on your assessment of what is necessary in the process of measuring for vinyl shutters. Use “Shutter Screws” to attach to wood, vinyl, and other soft siding. “Shutter Spikes” adhere shutters to hard surfaces such as masonry, stucco, or hardboard. Both screws and spikes are color coordinated to match the specified shutter color. Vinyl shutters can only be installed in a stationary position and cannot be functional (swing open and closed with operable hardware).

Vinyl Shutter Shipping Time

Vinyl shutters require about 2 weeks to manufacture. If you need faster turnaround, consider our express manufacturing for a nominal fee.

Karen R.

I have an older home and wanted to keep the authentic look of raised panel outside shutters. The original wood shutters had been painted numerous times and were rotten at the hinges and joints. I tried to repair them, but couldn't get them to look very good. I ordered your shutters (with a bit of healthy skepticism, I might add). Your outdoor shutters are great and they look as carefully crafted as the originals. I'll be back to order more. Thanks!

Sparky K.

The exterior shutter looks like a work of art. The other house shutters that I have are either molded plastic or older wood ones that have been on the house 25 years. I know that after painting this one and putting it up that it will last at least 25 year. Thanks for the great craftsmanship on the outside shutter.
