Do I Need To Remove The Trim Before Putting In Shutters? Whether or not to remove the trim depends on your personal style. If you want to keep your trim in place, we can build your shutters to complement your current trim. If you prefer our shutter frames, then removing trim is fine—but it’s not a necessity. If you want to go without trim or replace your trim, your Sunburst installer can help you choose the right shutter to match your perfect vision.
