We are getting our current home as market ready as possible.  We started with power washing the exterior, trimming some of the bushes, and cleaning and painting the fence.  Something caused our shutters on the garage to fade,  and they looked really bad.  We thought about painting them and tried to match the color.  After having no luck with matching the paint I called the manufacturer of the shutters and asked if they could provide the paint code so I could have it mixed locally.  A very helpful representative from Mid-America Shutters said we should NOT paint them but to file a claim for replacement.  She guided me through the process and in a couple of weeks we had new shutters for the entire house, not just the faded ones.  All under warranty!

This is how faded the shutters were.

This picture may be a little fuzzy but only the shutters on the garage were faded.
