Do I Need To Remove My Trim Before Putting In Shutters? That’s up to your personal taste. If you want to keep the trim you already have, we’re able to build your shutters to complement your current trim. If you like our shutter frames better, then you can remove the trim—but it’s not a requirement. If you’re trying to go trimless or replace your trim, we can help you pick the right option to fit your perfect vision.
