Should I Remove My Trim Before Installing Shutters? Whether or not to remove the trim depends on your own taste. If you want to keep the trim you already have, we can build your shutters to match your current trim. If you like our shutter frames better, then removing trim is fine—but it’s not a requirement. If you’re trying to go trimless or replace your trim, we can help you find the best option to match the vision you have in mind for your windows.
