The vinyl shutters are just what the doctor ordered. Lightweight but sturdy and easy to install. I was especially pleased that the shutters came with matching colored screws. This is my third time ordering these shutters from HD and I have never been disappointed.

Thank you for your Builders Edge purchase and online review.
These shutters look fine from the street. These are rock bottom, cheap shutters. Very flimsy. If you can get past their cheapness, they should last about 10 years. My original shutters, installed by a production builder, same material, look and construction (well, "molding", not construction) lasted 10 years, and then in a hail storm, broke to bits as the plastic had gotten brittle. This purchase was to replace the originals. I don't expect the performance of these shutters to be any different - same material and style as originals.
Description says "without the maintenance worries of wood". True. Wood shutters might last 20 years or longer. These won't, so don't worry about it.
To install, you need a drill and a hammer. Or a shoe with a hard heel if you don't have a hammer.
