I bought 2 6 foot sections to create some privacy in my backyard. I have a long and skinny backyard, so I felt these would do the trick. I measured the area that I wanted the fence to cover, which came out to 12 feet. Using my intuition, I bought 2 six foot sections, along with 3 posts and 3 caps for the posts. I finished work on this fence last weekend.
First of all, the fence does look nice and it does the trick as far as privacy. However, read carefully so you don't make the same mistakes I did.
I live in a cold climate so I dug my holes about 40 inches deep. I spaced the holes out 6 feet "center to center". Big mistake. The spacing is actually smaller than this size. Use the upper or lower "rail" to be your guide on how far to space your holes. I ended up having to make my holes bigger, making the footings again, and wasting about 3-4 hours. Making the holes this deep, and creating footings makes the fence extremely solid.
Also, when putting the vinyl slats in the rails, spray them down with soap and water. It does mention this on the directions, but it is easily missed. If you don't, you will not have a good time, trust me.
When putting the fence sections into the post, it may be helpful to have someone hang on the section because you will need to bend the top rail down just a bit. This is extremely hard because these pieces were not made to bend much.
Overall, I like the fence. It turned out smaller than I would have liked. I probably would have gone with 2 8 foot sections if I would have known better. Live and learn. The caps make it look quite fancy. My neighbors liked it. Just remember it will probably be smaller than expected and use the "rail" piece as a guide for your holes!

Easy to put fence together and looks great. You can also adjust the length by ripping a panel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Just what I needed
The online photo matched exactly what I needed to replaced a fence panel damaged by tree removal service. The package it was delivered in helped to ensure that the panels were not damaged during shipment and it was easy to assemble.

Durable and very easy to install.
I used two panels to make a gate. Needed a light weight solution for an automatic gate opener and this product fit the bill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Great for outside shower walls
If you are going to build an outside shower stall, this is the product you need. The panels are designed to slide together, you can make them different lengths. Panels are washable, sun resistant, durable, and if one part gets damaged, you only have to replace a 7 inch strip. There is a minimum amount of waste since the panels are in strips and not one solid panel like most fence panels. My local Home Depot does not stock them anymore, but are still available online to be shipped to you or your store.

I chose this fence to enclose the bottom of a porch because I could cut the panels to size. After you cut them you run the cut side over the table saw to cut the groove. you have do do test cuts because if the blade is too high you will cut the center support out. Be careful. As advertised.
