Customer Questions & Answers

Can these be sawed and drilled?

I would like to use these to replace the wood in a metal gate, but they would have to be cut to size and drilled for mounting screws.
Asked by: aislynn
Absolutely! This was actually easier to work with than real wood. Machinability is excellent.

I see some reviews that say many boards come warped. Is this a big issue I should worry about?

Asked by: RC
My experience was mixed. I bought a total of 15 of the 4 5/8" wide boards and 4 of the 6 1/2" wide boards. None of the 4" boards were warped, but all of the 6" boards were. I stacked them all on my garage floor with the warped ones on the bottom and the rest on top and within a few days, they were all straight.

I have to replace a small section of fence. Can I attach the composite pickets to my pressure treated 2x4 rails? If so would I still use a nail gun?

Can this be installed on wrought iron posts and horizontal bars?

I already have wrought iron posts with 2 horizontal bars that wood pickets are currently installed on. I would like to replace the wood pickets with these composite pickets. Is this recommended or should I stick with the wood pickets?
Asked by: policarps
If a third rail were added, would you recommend using the composite pickets?

7/16 in. x 4-5/8 in. x 69 in. Heartwood Composite Dog-Ear Fence Picket is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was shorted 15 slats on my order & at... I was shorted 15 slats on my order & at least 10 are snapped off on the bottoms. I haven't installed them yet because I am waiting for the missing ones to arrive (I had to reorder them). I did over order since all the other reviews seemed to have problems with warping etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive I was surprised when this product arrived at the quality, appearance and incredible ease of use when building a gate. Much better than regular wood by a long shot. I've only shorted it one star because the environment in Cheyenne, WY is harsh. Very dry and at 6000 feet the UV eats many products up in a relatively short period of time. Since I just installed the product I have no idea how it will hold up to our conditions but if it does it's a genuine 5 star product. The pickets are very flexible compared to wood and may seem flimsy by themselves but once screwed to the rails they are everything you'd hope for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE this fake wood! Project: Replace wood porch column and front shutters. The house is only 4 years old, but gets direct Texas sun all day so the wood on the exterior was peeling, faded and split. My first thought was a composite wood product, but most of them are expensive and didn't lend themselves to this project. Then I found this. Since it isn't sold in stores, I only bought what I needed for the porch column figuring the $20 investment would tell me what I needed to know about appearance, quality and workability. The first order was damaged in shipping, but the Home Depot staff did an amazing job of handling that and getting a replacement order sent. The "wood" is great. Is cuts and drills very easily, looks amazing, even close up, and will hopefully last a lot longer than the original natural wood. I liked it so much that I bought more and did the shutters with it. Total investment for this project was between $120 and $130 and I'm raking in the complements on how good it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to work with. I built an 88 foot fence using these pickets. I wasn't able to use any of the pre fabricated fence sections since I wanted a 2 inch gap between pickets. They were very easy to install using a nail gun. The fence looks great on both sides and I saved a lot of time not needing to paint or needing paint in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor purchase The material was inferior. It was twisted and warp. I would send it back but have it already installed. I am afraid that when the sun hits it will become even worst. I believe that the material is too thin (less than 1/2 inch) for fencing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fences make good neighbors. The negatives: Very heavy weight material meant gates required extra hardware to support weight. Pickets were not straight, almost every one was bowed along the sides which meant a large amount of force was needed to straighten it and alignment was not as intuitive as it could have been. The positives: The fence looks amazingly like wood and should never require maintenance. The fence is strong, a wind storm hit right after the fence was installed with 100mph gusts and the fence was unaffected. All in all, over 100ft of this fence was installed and it turned out great. I would recommend this product to anyone who is planning on owning their fence for a long time and doesn't like to spray stain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent material for custom projects I needed to build a cover over a space used to store a hose in my garden. I wanted something good looking and durable. This material was perfect. It is easily cut and shaped as I needed. It looks great and will probably last forever. (Click the photo to see full view)
