    Q:In the customer reviews section of this page, a person named Jojo sent a comment on August 6, 2019 ("The product has a rough finish...") and included a photo of some white spindles. We are looking for the exact type of spindles as those shown on the picture, but we haven't been able to find them on the THD website. Can you help us?

    A:  I had the same problem. Search for wood spindles. Mine were listed as "WeatherShield 1.375 in. x 2.125 in. x 36 in. Wood Pressure-Treated Square Classic Spindle (7-Pack), Tan". Is it possible that the ones in the comments photo had been painted by Jojo before taking the picture?

    by|Jul 17, 2021

      A:  Hello Jake, After extensive study of the photo that you were referring to, we have concluded that "Jojo" had used the 1 in. x 2 in. x 36 in. classic spindle - the exact product which you identified, but that he or she painted the wood. We see that the silhouette is a square, an hourglass, the rounded center, and then a repeat of hourglass followed by a square, when viewing from top to bottom or the reverse. To find the coordinating posts, routed rails and cap rails, click on the Replacement Parts List link within the boxed-off Info & Guides section of the product page. Hope this helps you. If you would like to verify this information, you might consider talking with a Pro associate in the fencing aisle at your nearest Home Depot location.

              A:  Rhonda, As we do not know the details of your project, please consult a contractor or builder to discuss your specific materials list. Best of luck with your project.

              by|Sep 14, 2020

                A:  Mine are 7inched apart. I measure from the middle out on each side. Just so that I could split the difference on the end of the railing I also painted mines white.

                by|Aug 29, 2020

                A:  You need to know what your local codes require for spacing then divide the length of your rail by spacing. You may want to adjust the spacing by 1/2 the width of the baluster to get the exact spacing and will reduce the number needed by a couple depending on the rail length. Good luck

                by|Aug 30, 2020

                A:  there is a web site called blocklayer.com that has a baluster calculator , many different uses, very helpful, takes the guess work out

                The product has a rough finish. Needs to be sanded before installation.

                I like these balusters. I used them for a railing inside my cabin, where everything is natural wood. They looked great! We finished them with wax, and they look nice. However... 1. They are NOT 36" long. Mine were 35 3/4" long, so I had to adjust the placement of my bottom rails. If you buy these, wait until you get,them to set up your rails. 2. Each pack had one baluster (spindle) that was unusable. I bought three packs. One had extreme knots right at the attachment point, so I couldn't nail through it. Two others had gouges and voids that ruined them aesthetically. Buy extra. Otherwise, a nice product. I know they are intended for exterior decks, hence,the pressure treating. Most people will paint them. But the lathe-work is nice enough for use without paint.

                We really like our spindles and they look great on our new front porch. These are very sturdy and look like they will hold up for a long time. We have had them up now for two weeks through 90 degree heat and major rain down pours and they have not changed a bit. The only thing we dislike was the shipping. It arrived quickly but I'm really surprised they didn't fall out of the box before they got to us. I would highly recommend these spindles to everyone.

                Good product, Nice Looking, Straight boards!
                McQuality Designs & Services installed a redwood deck on a home located in The Ranch in Prescott, AZ, and used these spindles to add character and class to the overall look of the decking. Out of 175 spindles purchased, there were only two that were not usable. Overall rating is 4.5 stars, and we will recommend these to future clients looking to add a little extra class to their decking.

                Great Purchase at a great price.
                My husband said it could not be done and oh boy, did Home Depot and I show him. Our house was bulit 24 years ago when the codes did not specifiy the closeness of raiing, spindles, etc. He said I could never match them and for the safety of our 22 month old granddaughter, I said we would "fix" the porch. I found the exact spindles at Home Depot that was used in our porch 24 years ago. Not only did they match perfectly, but they were easy to toe nail in and secure with only sawing to the lenght need. Now if I can just get them stained to match the others. Once again, Home Depot came through with a quality product that we could not find anywhere else at such a great price

                Dear handyman, thank you for letting UFP Retail Solutions know about your frustrating experience with the selection of wood balusters that your local store has in stock. We do value you as a customer and can assure you that our balusters are normally of excellent quality. However, as wood dries, it may split, cup and warp, which are natural occurrences of wood. If you are still in need of wood balusters, please see a Pro Associate at your local store for product availability or the possibility of completing a special order for what you need. If there is anything that we, as the manufacturer, can do regarding the balusters, please contact us at UFPRetailCS@UFPI.com, and one of our customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.
