Thanks for reaching out. Vinyl shutters are a decorative product (non-functional) and do have "open louver" (spaces between the louvers). You may be able to install an insect screen, however, since that is not the intended usage of them (which would be installing them in a decorative fashion, to the surface of the house, on the left and right side of a window), we cannot necessarily confirm that. We hope they work out for your project! Let us know if we can further assist.
This is made in the United States.
Thanks for reaching out! <br> If you'd like paint the vinyl shutters, you would want to choose the "Paintable" option. You can find this under the "Color/Finish" selection. We would not recommend painting over the pre-colored vinyl choices.

Due to the screw threading on the Shutter Lok's and them being meant for permanent installation, typically the only way to remove them is to actually snap the Shutter Lok's. Please feel free to reach out to a local professional that can assist with your project. Let us know if we can assist with a future order! We do sell the Shutter Lok's separately.
The vinyl shutters are dyed in the manufacturing plant, not painted, so there is unfortunately, no color code. However, the easiest solution would be to bring a panel of the shutter to Home Depot, and have them match it! Hope this helps.
Thanks for reaching out. We'd recommend installing these shutters per the instructions, on all four corners. Vinyl shutters are a hollow product (they have a false back) and should be permanently supported/installed on all sides.
The width at the top and bottom of this shutter is 14.5 inches, and is 1 inch thick.
