Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Josh Good alernative to other composite products
I was building a small outdoor enclosure and looking for something pre-finished and weatherproof that I could use for the sides. This composite fence picket worked perfectly for my project. Although this fence picket is not as rigid as I thought it might be, I cut it into short lengths that ended up being sturdy enough for what I was doing.
Since I did not use this as a fence picket, I cannot speak to its functionality in that application; however, in just setting the full board on an uneven horizontal surface it began to sag/bow, so I can see where there might be an issue if it wasn't properly supported or had any sort of pressure applied to it.
My local Home Depot does not stock this product so I ordered it online, it was delivered quickly and arrived in good condition.

I didn't use these for vertical pickets, I laid them out laterally along the ground to keep the dirt from piling up against an existing cedar picket fence. I put two screws in both ends and one in the middle, and they stayed flat against the fence, then I returned the dirt. The color is close to the fence stain, so they are not noticeable. Hope to extend the life of the fence by many years.

I researched and bought these pickets to update an old fence. Most people may be turned away from these because they are 3-times more than your basic treated wood pickets. But when you factor in the up keeping, staining, replacing, staining etc this product is a no brainer. Do yourself a favor and buy these. Have had them for over a year now. No fading, color is great, very durable and have held up better than the old wood fence to my German shepherd. They look like the day i installed them. I used 4x6x10 treated posts set about 3ft on center and installed these pickets in subway style horizontally. Look amazing. This product flexes well with the wood post without splitting or breaking. Highly recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sadfence Extreme warping!
Last fall we built a 4ft to 6ft tall fence with pickets installed horizontally around our yard. We chose this product over wood (and paid a premium price) due to it being low/no maintenance.
Almost halfway through the project the weather turned significantly warmer. All of the fence pickets bowed out horribly, making our fence look wavy. We paid the guys installing it to undo what they'd already done and re-screw at 12 in intervals instead of 24in.
This worked pretty well... Up until now, as spring and hot temperatures have started arriving. The pickets are bowing again between the sections where they're screwed. Our once clean and modern fence now looks sloppy and horrible.
The only reason this product gets two stars instead of one is because the color hasn't changed over the past few months, and it doesn't look like it will be affected by mildew spots like composite decking.
I would not recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimR Excellent Product
I was originally looking for Trex to use as inserts in a double "HOA" gate but found this product online instead. I'm glad that I used it. It is thin (7/16"), relatively lightweight and good looking. Highly recommended.
