Do I Need To Remove The Trim Before Putting In Shutters? The answer will depend on your own taste. If you want to keep the trim you already have, we’re able to build custom shutters to fit with your current trim. If you like our shutter frames better, then you can take out the existing trim—but it is not a requirement for shutters. If you’re trying to go trimless or replace your trim, we’ll help you pick the best option to match your perfect vision.
