Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PS Simply stunning
These glass balusters were the perfect solution for our new lakefront deck. The south facing deck gets very hot in the summer and full glass panels would have prevented the breeze from helping cool the deck. Easy to install. Finishing the installation with a trim board nicely covers the fasteners. The glass provides a modern yet elegant look that is simple stunning.
One caveat is that there are some small quality issues with some of the glass as received from the manufacturer., mainly scratches and small areas of abrasion on some pieces. We had about a 10% reject rate over about 150 balusters. We ordered extra and are returning the defective ones to HD. Because they are fairly expensive, I would have expected better quality control. However, they are so beautiful that I still rated them 5 stars overall.
Shipping was very fast (received within a week of placing online order). I first ordered a sample pack of 5 three weeks ago from HD and also from HD's main competitor on the same day to ensure I liked them and to decide where to buy from as I think they come from the same manufacturer. HD's arrived quickly, I loved them, ordered 145 more which also arrived quickly and the installation was completed yesterday. Funny that just tonight I received a call from the competitor telling me the sample order of 5 that I ordered from them had just arrived at their store for pickup. .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boabrother4 Exactly what I was lookin for
This product allowed me an easy do it yourself option for glass balusters at a reasonable price. Good quality, heavy, thick tempered glass, pre-drilled with gromets installed and mounting screws included.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Glass panels look great.
Found these panels at HD and they worked great for us. We wanted to change the standard wooden balusters on our screened porch and glad we decided on these panels. Needed to remove the old wood and prep and paint before starting. Each of 7 panels had to be custom built as each section was a different size. Framing was made from ripped treated 2x6 boards. We hinged one side so the panels can be opened up for cleaning. "L" brackets secure the other end. Lots of work but worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lvisallthris Love these balustrades!
The railings are easy to install, allow air to pass through and rarely collect dirt. They seem to be self cleaning. We are in the PNW and get wind and rain three years have not produced any visible need for cleaning. They open up our view considerably and are less expensive that sheet glass.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patricia Buy these balusters!
I never write reviews, but I have to strongly recommend this product. I am very uh, thrifty (OK, cheap) and thought long and hard before purchasing these balusters, as it would have been much less money to go with wood. After my husband installed them, I realize I would have easily paid twice as much money for the effect that they produce - it is perfect. I have only two things to add to the other positive reviews: first, ours have gone through a very cold, snowy winter in the mountains with no ill effects (I thought that this was important as many reviews are posted right after a product is purchased); second, I have not cleaned them once in the 18 months that they have been up and they still look great - this is also important as I am not only thrifty, I am very uh, selective about my exercise (OK, lazy).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rayzor A great product for a professional looking deck railing.
I didn't want to block the view of the lake from my new deck, so I decided to try these glass balusters. I couldn't be happier with the results. The balusters were very easy to install with just four screws per baluster. They created a railing that meets code but still provides a full view. A very professional looking final product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HvLB Love the clear glass and easy to install
I am really happy with the look of the installed balusters. The clearness of the glass allows the view of the deck to stand out.
Easy to install onto the railings

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by decky Great Results!
Glass Balusters came with all the necessary installation materials and were packed to prevent damage. After receiving we had to adjust our deck design, we did not realize that due to the 32" length you had to use 6" wide boards in order to meet height code. We originally wanted to use 2 x 4's but the height would have been too low. Finished product looks great!
