  • Brush away any debris that has collected behind the shutters! Say goodbye to twigs, leaves, and even nests!
  • Check your hardware. Wipe down with a soft cloth and touch up any nicks with a rust-preventative paint, available at your local hardware store.
  • Wash shutters gently with a soft cloth and mild, non abrasive soap solution. Rinse with a garden hose. Then, allow them to dry in the sun. Do NOT use a power washer.
  • Secure capping. If capping is loose, gently remove it, add clear silicone caulk to the underside, and reapply.
  • If your shutters have operable louvers, slowly tighten louver tension screws, which can be found along the sides of the shutters.
