Measure the opening with the damaged vinyl plantation shutters still in place. Take the measurements in several places along the width and the height of the opening, move the arcs as needed to see if there is a slight variation in width or height. Order the new vinyl shutter using the smallest dimensions you will receive in each direction.
Remove the existing shutters after the new device arrives. Tie off the trim border from the inner edge of the opening, keeping the trim intact. Drive a tiger saw around the perimeter of the existing vinyl unit, in the exposed gap between the shutter unit and the surrounding frame, to cut through the screws that hold the vinyl unit in place. Remove it completely. Place the new vinyl plantation shutters unit in the opening, adjust the bottom of the first and press the top. Trim around the outside of the opening prevents the device from falling through.
