Customer Questions & Answers

can these be used for outdoor chair's?

Asked by: marc
Good idea but I think they're to thin for chairs. With sun hitting it, composite material tends to bend unpredictably. On the other hand, these things are cheap enough to experiment with. I made exterior board and batten shutters out of composite decking which is thicker than these pickets and still needed to run L brackets behind the boards to help prevent bending. Keep in mind that any time you're building with composite material, the final product is going to be very heavy.

Can this product be painted?

Asked by: CC
Thank you for your question. We do not recommend painting the pickets as the paint would eventually peel back off. The benefit of a composite is it doesn't require painting, sanding or staining to retain its appearance and performance.

Could this be used as flooring over an existing wood deck to revitalize the look?

The current deck is pressure treated 5 1/8 x 3/4 deck board with little to zero gap between boards and is under covered roof now.
Asked by: hb
Thank you for your question. No, we do not recommend overlaying the decking over another surface. Moisture that could become trapped between the layers would allow the decking to swell and rot the bottom layer. The existing decking would need to be removed and the composite attached directly to the joists.

What is the recommendations for installing onto a metal picket gate? I want to install these horizontally.

These will be used on a metal gate. Can these be installed laying across the pickets instead of in between?
Asked by: nick
Thank you for your question. We do not recommend the pickets be installed horizontally so we cannot offer details on how to do so.

7/16 in. x 6 1/2 in. x 69 in. Heartwood Square Top Composite Fence Picket is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Only reason they aren't perfect is because they have a slight crown/bow to them that makes the tight gaps I went with inconsistent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It like a goat cut them I had previously bought veranda fencing from homedepot and wanted to extend the current fence. unfortunately veranda doesn't make that still anymore so i went onto this as it was almost the same color and looked simple. Went to homedepot to see samples but they don't carry samples so i ordered one of heartwood to see if it matches with my current fence. I really like it and decided to order about 900 dollars worth of material from veranda. They gave my a courtesy call saying i may not have enough brackets and were very nice. But however this picket are extremely curved. When you put them the top looks fine but the bottom is not straight. they aren't cut straight and will have to cut them slightly or sand them in order to get them straiten out. So we had to improvise and start by only stapling all the top pickets and after we did the bottom trying to make as straight as possible. and also poor quality control as some pickets and posts and marks and scratches. so order extra of everything and then return what's extra as i did. overall with all the hard work it looks nice but lots of headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it and easy to work with I live in Phoenix where the hot summers reek havoc on real wood fence slate. If not maintained every year, they dry out, fade, shrink, and splinter badly. This composite wood is exactly what the Doctor ordered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great new fence Love the look of our new fence. Good to know it will last for many years to come. Surprised that it could show scratch marks from shipping and not always line up well but I'm guessing that its imperfections are designed to look like real wood. Happy overall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from veranda composition fence review The thickness of the fence Pickett did not have enough strength to maintain it's shape during summer and winter cycles. There are better products on the market but the cost will be higher. I feel it will be worth it over the long run.
