Rated 4 out of 5Â by ELJR Nice product - but install with screws not provided bolts
The shutters come with these plastic "bolts" which look like large screws online but are actually hammered in. These were difficult to work with and bent when hit with the hammer even with pre-drilled holes. I thought it was just me because I don't have a lot of experience but I then had a professional install the shutters on my upper level and he also had trouble with them. I would recommend buying regular shutter screws to attach to house. The other problem with these bolts are the only way to take the shutter down is to cut the bolt, drill of the part still left in the siding, and use a new bolt. If you do use the bolts provided buy and extra bag or two because you will need them.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TJB1988 These were purchased to replace faded shutters
These were a perfect replacement for our old shutters. We were not able to purchase the 43" shutters in the store so we ordered the 60" online to try to obtain both sets from the same color lot

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Robert Flimsy & Difficult to Paint
I bought a pair of 15" x 75" Builders Edge shutters from H-D, and have not yet installed them, but was moved to warn others. The shutters are so flimsy that I had to hold the back of the shutter to keep it from bending too much while I was painting them. Couldn't you put a vertical reinforcing piece of plastic cast into the back of the shutter, Builders Edge?
Also, I purchased "paintable" type so I could paint to match the other shutters on the house. Using Home Depot's best Behr paint, it will take at least 2 coats of paint because there's a gloss finish on the "paintable" shutters. Couldn't you provide a surface similar to a primed surface? Using good paint, it should NOT take 2+ coats.
I'm not a picky person, and this is the first negative review I've ever written. These are junk.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kiwi Great value and enhancement to the home!
Buying the vinyl shutters was an excellent all round experience. Delivery was timely, as promised, and the installation was straight forward. A cordless drill with a masonry bit, along with the barbed matching shutter fasteners made it quick and simple!! This was the least expensive but best bang for the buck home improvement project I have done.
