Exterior shutters are often mounted on a three-sided frame so that there is no frame piece along the window sill. This type of design is neater, and it allows rainwater to run off the sill easily to prevent problems with rot or mildew. Because exterior shutters are exposed to the elements, make sure you choose hardwearing or factory-coated materials. Construct the frame as specified, unless it is supplied ready-made. Position the frame at the front of the recess. Check the fit.
