Do I Need To Remove The Trim Before Installing Shutters? Whether or not to remove the trim depends on your personal taste. If you want to keep your trim in place, we can 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’ll help you choose the right shutter to fit the vision you have in mind for your windows.
