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?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. We would recommend using the wood pickets with this application because it only has two rails. The composite pickets are flexible and must be supported to prevent bowing. Two rails are not enough support to hold the material secure.

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.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Yes, the material can be cut using standard woodworking tools, and a 32 tooth circular saw blade will provide a clean cut. Pre-drill your screw holes 3 times the size of the shank of the screw, or slightly smaller than the screw head for the middle and lower rails to allow for thermal expansion and contraction of the material with heat and cold.

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?

Answer: 
If attaching to pressure treated 2x4s, make sure to use stainless steel nails since the chemicals used to treat lumber is corrosive.

Answer: 
Yes, you can. However, please see the attached key points. In addition, our installation instructions specify that staples need to be used for fasteners, not nails. The staple gun should be set at 100 to 102 psi. The required staple size is 1 ½ inch leg length, ¼ inch crown size. The staple leg length is the most important. They can be 18 or 16 gauge, stainless or galvanized.

July 13, 2016
Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The pickets can be spaced as far apart as 3 inches on the rear layer as the gap will be covered by the top layer. Staples for the top layer should be 2 in. long so as to penetrate both layers of picket and into the wood insert inside the rail.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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) July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Quality Easy installation & should provide a lifetime of service !! July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 6, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by My fence Product was delivered in a timely manner. Deliver was free to my home. Product was easy to install and overall looks good. Only complaint is that a lot of the boards are not straight. This is a manufactured product so I don't understand why some are bowed one way or another. Makes the install a little more difficult. You have to plan on leaving a gap between the boards. June 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Glad I could still get this composite fencing This was basically the same composite fencing I bought several years ago. But it seems to have less of a coating now, looks dryer. Seems like it might not wear as well as the original composite fencing. Otherwise, all good. August 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by /16 IN. X 4-5/8 IN. X 69 IN. COMPOSITE HEARTWOOD DOG-EAR FENCE PICKET Used Composite Heartwood Dog ear Fence picke tor trim on new windows Really beautiful and durable.. Composite is way to go. August 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Alternative to Wood in Hot and Humid Climates The boards are a tad flimsy (won't support their own weight when held horizontally). Otherwise, I've had these for four years and they are holding up well, save two breaking off at the top screw (out of a 300' fence on chain wall). I used schedule 40 galvanized pipe posts rather than 4" X 4" wood. They do not recommend anything other that wood posts. Don't hold up in South Louisiana. June 2, 2015
