Should I Remove The Trim Before Putting In 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 you can take out the existing trim—but it’s not a requirement. If you want to go without trim or replace your trim, your Sunburst installer can help you find the right shutter to fit what you have in mind for your space.
