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 I place the pickets side by side with no gap? Or will they expand in heat?

Asked by: Richard
It will expand in the heat. I notice more length expansion than width expansion. I suppose that is because there in more length material than width material.

7/16 in. x 4-5/8 in. x 69 in. Heartwood Composite Dog-Ear Fence Picket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 23.

I am in Arizona and it gets hot. The product will expand in the heat. I suggest cutting the boards with an allowance for expansion in length. One quarter inch shorter than space in gate is probably enough. I suggest putting a shim under the board to divide the gap between top and bottom while drilling for the bolt. I suggest drilling the bolt hole at the bottom of the metal frame holes to maintain the bottom gap after installing the bolt. I first used ordinary nuts and tightened them so the board would not move, It bowed in the heat. I purchased enough nylon locking nuts and left a "slight" wiggle room for the board and it helped reduce the bowing in the heat. Ordinary woodworking tools can be used for cutting, smoothing rough edges from the saw cut. Wood bits work fine for drilling. It looks nice, I am pleased with the product so far. It has a 25 year warranty against defects and "supposedly" does not need painting or stain. Time will tell for how it performs. I recommend it.

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 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 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.
