I have made board and batten shutters for the windows of my Vermont house. They are decorative, not functional. I need to know how to attach them to the house which has old siding made of wood covered with some sort of plastic/vinyl (1980s variety). What should I use to attach them?
use screws then putty and stain the screw holes. i would predrill the screw holes. thats the way new construction is done
Another couple ideas for others would be using a bullet catch and clip that attaches to the back of the shutter allowing them to clip to the house. There is also a cleate and anchor system that uses a few angled pieces of metal to hang the shutter (also invisible).
