Has anyone out there hung exterior board and batten shutters? We are weighing the pros and cons of hanging them with functioning hardware or not. We will never actually close the shutters and hinges, etc. for hanging can get expensive. I also prefer to see all of the window trim and most images of shutters hung on hinges hides part of the window trim. Our house is wood sided.
I am asking for opinions about this and wondering how shutters are hung if you don't use real hinges.
