Q:Can I use anything other than the 5/4 inch wood? There is none available in my area. The only options are 2 inches or 5/8 inch

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Julie and thanks for reaching out. Our HOFT post grove is 1 1/8'' so you can slide anything that is thinner than this. However, it is recommended that you use 5/4th wood deck boards or an actual 1’’ thick board. A thicker material has less chance of bending. If you use a thinner board, the maximum span between posts should be reduced to 5 feet. Thank you and please have a wonderful day. HOFT Team.

      Q:Would you recommend using 1x4x6 boards or 1x6x6 boards? Does it matter?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Ajdfsf and thanks for reaching out. If you are using a 5/4th wood board then the maximum distance between posts is 6-feet. If you are using a 1'' composite board then the maximum distance between posts is 5-feet to avoid warping over time. Our HOFT post groove is 1 1/8’’ so you can slide in anything that is thinner than this. As for the height of the boards, it all depends on each person's personal choice, but in order to have enough spacers to complete your HOFT project, we have measured using 5.375'' high boards. Thank you and please have a wonderful day. HOFT Team

          The kit provided the frame for an excellent privacy fence on the side of our patio. This now allows us to enjoy this space without encroaching on our next door neighbor and vice a versa.

          Hi HomeDepotCustomer and thanks for the wonderful review, which we really appreciate. Have a great day and enjoy your HOFT privacy fence. HOFT Team. HOFTSolutions
            I had a good time installing the Hoft system. I used 2- 96 inch posts and one surface mount post. I liked the ones that I buried and concreted in. They were easier. I surface mounted the one on concrete. It was somewhat difficult to drill the holes. My biggest issue was the boards, it called for 1” thick boards, but you cannot find those easily. I chose to go with a standard 3/4 “ thick board. You could tell that they were thin, but the little spacers held them in place just fine. It looks exactly the same and they’re only 4 feet long so I highly doubt that they will warp. Overall I am satisfied with the way it turned out.

            Hi DIYwannabe and thanks for the wonderful review, which we really appreciate. The 1'' boards with a distance of 4 feet between posts should not cause a problem whatsoever, seeing that you shortened the distance and which we usually recommend for thinner boards. Enjoy your HOFT fence and have a nice day. HOFT Team. HOFTSolutions

            Great fence system overall. It takes some time to set the posts correctly to maintain the post heights and plan the steps correctly, but the end result is a very beautiful fence with both sides enjoying the “good” side. The system also allows for easy removal and replacement of board if needed or removal of a full set of boards for access down the road. We used ProWood 5/4 boards for fill and they look great. The boards dried out over the first week after installation and the Hoft system allowed for a quick compression of the boards downward and everything lined up horizontally because the bottom row was set level and at the same heigh between panels. Don’t be alarmed if the spacing seems off initially between panels if using Pressure Treated lumber for filling the panels.

            Fantastic (but pricey) product
            This produce is FanTaStic! I live in a very tight neighborhood where my neighbor's breakfast nook faces where I park and do my staging for garden work. So, I planned an attractive screen to give them more privacy. I had to wait months until this product was available in the U.S. It's only 18 ft. long; two end posts, two line posts set in concrete. I used western cedar (5/4X6) which is very difficult to find in my part of the country. The aluminum posts are heavy and strong and precisely manufactured. One coat of semi-transparant stain to help in UV protection. Pricey? Yes but I believe this screen is here for the long-run without the need for maintenance or renovation.

              Hoft makes a great product, a little pricey but a great product nonetheless. I have used it to create privacy walls on our backyard deck and fence off a community of duplexes that showed up in our backyard a couple years ago with their front door 3 feet from our property line, thanks greedy slumlords!

              This is a quality product and it was a fun project to do. It also looks classy. It’s a little pricey but it looks like it too.

              Nice but not fast
              Get it for the asthetic not ease of installation! If anything it took longer. Extra time need to line up posts perfectly to ensure horizonal boards fit in the channels. Trial and effort needed to set the pin at the bottom and all pins in between until everything fits just right. Fence on incline was further trial and error to get just the right height. Also beware using foam instead of concrete!! The posts are hollow so as the foam builds/rises it will raise up your posts a few inches!
