The following information pertains to the Mid-America brand shutter Larson’s sells.
NOTE: You can only paint vinyl shutters that were purchased as “030 Paintable”. If you purchased your shutters in one of the “Color Thru” choices then your shutters cannot be painted.
If you use Sherwin Williams “Duration” or “Superpaint” you will not need to prime paintable Mid-America shutters.
If you use other brands of paint that meet Mid-Americas guidelines and the sheen is “flat” you do not need to prime them first. However if you use a “gloss” sheen paint then you should prime the custom vinyl shutters first. Please see the paint requirements when using a paint that has not been tested by Mid-America.
DO NOT USE PAINT FORULATED WITH OR FOR VINYL PRODUCTS WHEN PAINTING “030 PAINTABLE” SHUTTERS FROM MID-AMERICA. LARSON SHUTTER AND MID-AMERICA MAKE NO WARRANTY REGARDING THE RESULTS YOU OBTAIN WHILE PAINTING ANY OF OUR SHUTTERS.
