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 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.

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 Robb Great Price! Great Fence
The privacy panels are great! My neighbors all love it, and are wanting one for their yards now. They look so much better than wood, and you can tell they will last a LOT longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hobbs77 Easy to assemble and looks great!
The panels are manufactured to allow for a little play which is very helpful when assembling over uneven ground. The price is affordable and was just right for our budget. It was surprising at house easy it went together. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is considering a DIY fence project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Looks great, even on a steep angle!
Was concerned about installing on a an incline. With some time invested to make the cuts correctly, these panels work fantastic!

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!!
