Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by J5o6e Next time I buy WOOD.
You have to buy everything A La cart. So, it ends up very expensive. I have over a grand invested in this little bit of fence. It's tricky to assemble. And it's flimsy. I just hope a good wind doesn't blow it all apart.
I do like the privacy though. And once all of the swearing is over, it does LOOK good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Looks good, but...
The fence is up, and it looks good, but it's flimsier than I thought it would be. It's a shame that this product isn't sold in the store, where it can be examined closely. If I could do it again, I'd buy the metal supports that cost $118 per panel and post. That would've added $4500 to my cost, though. That's a big ouch!!!
Another negative is that if dirt splashes on the fence, it really shows up. Eventually, greenery will be growing up to the fence, and it won't be an issue.
I hired an acquaintance to install the fence. He said he'd installed a lot of vinyl fences. It turned out that he'd never installed one like this. He was thinking brackets bolted onto posts. WRONG! Thankfully, Home Depot has an online video, showing how to install it. It was still very stressful for both of us, though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ronzo Issues with mold
We purchased 20 panel kits.Each kit was in a sealed box. Several kits had green mold on the individual fence panels. Before assembling, the panels had to be cleaned and some were discolored. This was very time consuming.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lyniclee awesome all around product
this is a great product for the do-it-yourselfer. I'm 54 and I installed about 300ft. of the dover Vinyl privacy fence by myself, thats around 40 panels and forty posts. (cost for an only labor estimate from a local fence company install $3900) I am very happy with the results so far, I believe my neighbors are equally as happy. Tips that may help you if your going solo as I did. 1. make sure you use your plum line! don't try to eye ball your posts in a straight line. that didn't work! 2. Dig your holes one at a time, 12" dia,- 8 foot centers, things move much faster when your posts ends up in the center of your post holes. 3. tools, post hole digger, clamps and a hole digging bar, Get the bar or borrow one, well worth the $35, 4. Home Depot doesn't sell end posts, use corner posts for your gate posts, face the opening of the corner posts outward and use the decretive inserts. Don't use line posts for your gate posts! 5. the gate hardware: don't follow the directions! install the hardware approx 3' lower than the instructions say to. getting a bolt into a picket at each corner helps keep the gate square, discovered that one by accident. 6. Don't buy or order this online, Home Depot has contractor prices if your buying in bulk, I saved approx $600 off my purchase by going into the store. they ran it through what the sales associate said was a contractor bid. 7. Have it delivered, best $79 you will spend, the less you have to move bags of concrete the better. 8. let nature harden you cement don't waist your time and energy mixing it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chansen Dover Gate Kit
The quality of the materials is good and i believe they will last. It has been easy to assemble once I have the right parts. I bought two of the Dover Gate Kits. Assembly of the first one was went great. The second one I opened was missing the gate jamb caps, and the machining to the jamb was incomplete. Home Depot replaced the kit no problem. I go to assemble the new gate and after drilling the holes for the hinges and brackets the included bolts are too short. I call the customer service number on the bottom of the instructions and I am told I have to go back to Home Depot to get this straightened out. I guess I will be returning this kit and be getting #4.
Seems like a good product but bad customer service and quality control.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by roadendranch WE LOVE THIS FENCE!!! BUY IT!!!
We wanted an attractive privacy fence. We shopped. We rode up and down allies looking at other people's fences. Nothing compared to this vinyl fence we'd originally seen at Home Depot. It's now installed and gorgeous! This fencing is elegant, easy to install, and a very good quality.

All I needed in this kit was the top/bottom rail but they didn't have it separate so I had to buy the entire kit. Now I'm left over with all these extra panels!!
