I’m just a beginner, so I was concerned when I started the repair process.
My wife is a perfectionist, so I had one chance or we were going to the experts,
whom I trust like the plague. For professional repairs, we’re talking
hundreds of dollars, potentially thousands, because our local service persons
will often claim that such shutters are unrepairable.
Your fixit kits were great - tolerances were perfect. Had a bit of a problem getting
my drill into the louvres frame to increase the hole depth, but I could do it more easily
when I drilled from the back. The primer was a blessing and, as you said, our paint
store had no problem matching our shade of white.
I am now a hero and will be ready to fix our shutters whenever needed. But I do have
some shutters without the central mounting post, so I may need to fix them in the
future. I hope you might be able to help. But, in any case, your hardware and
instructions worked like a charm.
