Mounting shutters on a recently side home with deep recessed metal frame casing around windows
We recently sided our home and the windows are wrapped with metal. I would like to properly hang shutters from the casement but the installer says the depth is too deep and that the only way I can install shutters in NEXT TO the window frame. This will drive me absolutely nuts. I would like to have the shutters installed ON the casement to look like real “working shutters” as opposed to “decorative” shutters. is there a way to do this using specialized hardware to make up the difference of the depth of the deepest part of the casement out to rest against the house? In other words, I was told it’s too much of an angle to install. I’m not opposed to buying wooden shutters—is there a way to mount them properly?
