Step 1 - Construct your frame
Step 2 - Mount your frame
For larger windows
Have someone help you with this step to ensure the corners of the frame don’t get damaged.
Step 3 - Mount your panels
Step 4 - Squaring your frame
Because of their weight, large panels may sit tight to the frame and need to be lifted in and out of place. This is normal.
You should have a nice even gap across the top between your panels and frame. If not, you will need to back in and out one or more of the screws to straighten out the frame.
Step 5 - Fill your gaps
For a professional finish, use the gap filler provided to fill the gaps between your window frame and shutter frame.
You may need to let it dry and apply a second filling to ensure all the light is being blocked out (often a good idea to check in direct sun light so you can see where you may have missed).
