Questions & Answers

Weatherproof shims

Can these shims be covered by dirt and left outside? need to shim a mailbox post where these would be placed between cement and the post, then covered with dirt. Would these be suitable to be left for years/decades underground or would they rot?
Asked by: Mark
years/decades.. hard to tell. See if you can find some type of ABS plastic first. If not, give these a try. I don't think they'd rot, but I'm not sure if they'd deteriorate over years and years

Can this be used to level floors?

Asked by: bp
Yes, they are not very long but can serve most purposes the wood ones do.

Can you use two or three shims to increase angle for more lift ?

Asked by: Bob
Not sure what you are lifting but they can work that way... they are 'slippery' when piled on one another, compared to wood so be safe.

I can always keep a half bundle in my tool bag when I manage 20+ units of rentals. I even use these to shim toilets. I know they have toilet shims that are white, but if I'm caulking around the toilet, I can use these. Composite shims are the way to go. One should never use wood shims if these are available. Wood expands and contracts and can get soft if exposed to water and deteriorate. Termites can also eat them. These are the way to go! Screw them, snap them, cut them, whatever you need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shim I've ever used Its hard for be to believe I am this impressed by something as simple as a shim, however having installed many doors and windows I can say these composite shims are the best product on the market. They break as easily as promised, and are exceptionally strong, however those aren't their best attributes. The best thing about these shims is their consistency. Each shim is exactly uniform, unlike wood shims that have natural variances. No more matching up shims to get the right thickness. I know that when I grab one of these it will be exactly the same size as every other one in the pack, or the pack before, or the pack after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much easier to trim than wood shims For only a few cents more there is no reason to ever use the wood ones again. They don't rot Doesn't matter if they get wet They don't compress like work shims They don't split when you put a nail or screw through them They are consistent They slide easily They are easy to trim just by snapping They can support a lot more load than a wood shim only down side is that it seems to be a waste to use them to spread glue or stir paint, they again they are almost the same price as the wood ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shim ever! This is the best shim I have every used. Never splinters, breaks easily and evenly. Would buy even if more expensive than the old wooden ones.
