Installation Tips on Vinyl Shutters over James Hardie Siding
 
Hi,
The wife and I are residing our home with James Hardie Color Plus siding.
We're also replacing the shutters. The existing shutters are screwed into the masonite. I don't want to use screws this time and pierce the factory finish on the Hardie Siding.
Any tips?

Thanks,

I know you don’t want to poke holes I your new siding but screws are really the best way to go.

2” stainless steel pan heads and some shutter color paint to touch up the screw heads.

Pre-drill the shutter so screw passes through freeley. Don't want that little pooch in the new vinyl shutter.
