Do I Need To Remove The Trim Before Installing Shutters? Whether or not to remove the trim depends on your personal style. If you want to keep the trim you already have, we can build your shutters to fit with your current trim. If you like our shutter frames better, then removing trim is fine—but it is not a requirement for shutters. If you’re trying to go trimless or replace your trim, your Sunburst installer can help you choose the right shutter to fit your perfect vision.
