We really like the quality of the fencing, it's exactly as we expected. It looks even better after we finished putting up the fence. Just as an FYI, we put up a "shadowbox" style fence using the narrow side of a 2x4 as the gap between pickets. Installed on pressure treated 2x4 rails and thick steel posts...mostly in 6' sections.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gateway Composite gates.
The composite picket fence pieces were perfect for my two gates. One gate was 48" wide and the other 60" wide. The height was exactly has I needed. I used brown treated 2" X 4" backing and fastened the pickets with 2" decking screws. The gates look good and no more picket painting. Since the gates were so wide and tall; the pickets had to be crossed braced to make them ridged. I also put a 2" X 4" across the bottom edges to prevent bending. The hinges were fastened to a 2" X 4" secured to the block walls with lag bolts. I had to rip one piece of picket fencing on each gated to fill the gate opening perfectly. The picket fence material cut well with a sharp hand saw. The picket fencing was great to to work with. No painting, no splinters, no problem.

I installed approx. 500 feet of fence using these boards six years ago and they are holding up great. I am installing another 360 feet this year. The first time I used three 2x4 stringers (support rails) but there is some slight warping in the boards from lack of support. This time I am using four support rails and it is looking great. No warranty using the 2x4 pressure treated lumber but I have no concerns. Boards do break at the top if you push on them to open a gate and such or if they drag the ground. My fence looks great and I get many compliments on it. No issues with breaking, warping or fading. Any warping was from my trying to cut costs and any breakage was due to lack of being careful. Very satisfied with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ladykay64 Excellent product
I wanted a simple solution to a pesky problem and this is a fantastic solution. Attractive, and easy to use, these were even more attractive due to the recycled products aspect. Yes, they're pricey, but you never have to stain or paint them and bugs don't like plastic.... Put them up and forget about them. Definitely increased my home's curb appeal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fenceman Veranda Jatoba composite fence boards
Product was well packaged for shipping, All boards were in great shape. Each board has a slight bow, but if you align each board, with the bow in the same direction, it looks great. Staples will bend if the board isn't pushed tight to the rails. It causes it to bounce.The wood grain looks real and hopefully the fence looks as great as it does now, for years to come. They recommended staples because screws will hold the boards too firm and cause the boards to bow in extreme heat. They want you to buy their posts and rails too, doubling or tripling the cost. Their rails are for 6' post spacings. I used existing posts, 8' centers, with 3 rails and the top rail with 2- 2x4s (treated lumber) screwed in an L shape to stiffen, to prevent fence from sagging.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronester Very easy to work with and install.
This product was the perfect solution for replacing an old fence. It cuts and nails like wood but is sturdier. I was able to correct some early misalignment issues by pounding out a few boards and repositioning them without much time lost. The Jatoba color looks great and I expect that it will last a long time.
