Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SWSimpson I used this to add privacy to my patio
The price was right, so I chose this wood to make my patio more private.... and it came out really nice. If the wood is a bit moist when you buy it, expect it to shrink a little. I had to sort though a lot of wood to get boards that were not bent or bowed, and I had to buy a few extra just in case.... and I did end up needing the extra wood to replace boards that ended up warping. However, for the most part, the wood I selected was pretty decent, and for my purposes it didn't have to be perfect. I am going to go over the wood eventually with a wood waterproof/protection so it will last longer. It was a fairly easy project to do, and I am happy with the results.

I installed 65 lineal feet of this fencing. The boards appeared to be nice and uniform. Installed on a Friday (as per directions) and the fence looked great. Nice and straight. Came back on the next Monday(3 days) to find at least 60 percent of the boards warped and twisted. Some boards shrunk as much as 2 inches. Fence looks 20 years old. Will never buy this product again. It should be removed from the shelves. I know it was the cheapest of boards, but it should of lasted at least the weekend! Save your money and buy Redwood.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Callu40 5/8 In x 5-1/2 in. X 6ft Red stain white wood dog ear picket
This product is junk! Installers were to use treated cedar, but used this product instead. Looked good first day...three days later big gaps between each board appeared so that no privacy between neighbors and us. Warping was extreme in many of the boards. That was two weeks ago. We are now replacing the portion that shows from the street with redwood. The difference in price was $.50 a board. Why, why would anyone buy this terrible junk when for a little more, you can buy redwood? Definitely do not recommend, in fact, this is a warning NOT to use this for anything.

Installed 80 feet of fence with this product. Within 3 days a majority of the planks were warping and bowing out at the bottom. I used four screws per plank and it did not help much. Spend a little more and get a quality product. This stuff is junk!

Many of the boards started to warp soon after they were installed and some even twisted.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mieke Great fence, but watch out for warped pickets
Grate value, but I bought an entire bundle for my fence. Once we openned up the buddle there were about 15 warped pickets. Just look at all your pickets before you walk out of the store. Other than that the fence looks amazing and am very happy with how everything turned out.
