Casing drywalled windows?


I just ordered the shutters and they measured assuming the drywall would stay. I will not mess with these windows since the shutter people will essentially 'case' them when they install the shutters in the drywalled opening. I was really just wondering if it would be a nicer looking shutter install if the window had wood casing rather than drywall casing, but it turns out that makes no difference in the final appearance. This was just a secondary question, that's all.

In the windows that **will not** have shutters, I plan to case those by replacing the drywall with wood, as recommended.

Sorry for the confusion!

in regards to losing 1/2" or gaining 1/2" in the opening it all depends on the window itself. if the window has the check in it that recieves the jamb extension your opening will stay the same because they take both 1/2" drywall and 3/4 wood. the face is still going to be in the same spot
