Removing Vinyl shutters from Brick

I've stripped a couple of the screws and broke a couple. Any suggestions on what I can do? How do I get the stripped ones out and how do I get the broken ones out to put in new ones?

Welcome to the Forum jdog.

Are you wanting to salvage the shutters???

What type of screws were used?

If your installing new shutters there's no reason the new ones have to line up with the old ones.
If there had of been lead anchors installed for the screws to be screwed into the screws would have just backed right out.

You could drill them out with a metal drill bit...
