Your specs. show 2x2 inch...is this a true 2x2.....or is it 1.5x1.5 inch....? Also....do you carry any of this type of inexpensive balusters in a larger dimension(say 3x3)...and also longer than 42 inches..?
Asked by: MBGV1
These balusters measure 1-3/8" by 1-3/8". Unfortunately, we do not carry any larger balusters at this time.

question about the dimensions

I'm familiar with typical differences in lumber measurements, such as 2x4 means it's a 1.5 etc.. anyone know the reason this piece being a 2x2 would only measure 1-1/4"? I needed a 1.5" board for a TV riser and got this one and was stumped at the 1.25" measurement. I've never seen this before.
Asked by: Anonymous
My original 2x2s on my original deck (~ 30 years ago) were ripped from a 2x4 and thus like you said, they actually were about 1.5 x 1.5. These 2x2s actually look much better because they do not have the rough cuts due to they were planned and sanded to get the roughness removed. Hope that helps!!

2 in. x 2 in. x 42 in. Wood Pressure-Treated Mitered 1-End B1E Baluster (16-Pack) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22.

The balusters are what they are but are made with very poor quality control. Only about half of the balusters in a bundle are usable with many of them warped, cracked, with large knots falling out, or poorly mitered. If you weed out the bad ones, the remaining ones are fine for their intended use, particularly if you pre-drill the balusters and intend to paint them. However, the extra work of sorting through them leaves these balusters with only a narrow advantage over making your own.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bend and split easily I'm no pro so I didn't realize the final measurement would not be 2x2. They are more like 1.5" I used these for deck railings and my spacing was skewed. Again, perhaps people know that the measurement listed is not what you get, but that was a surprise to me. A handful are visibly bent and/or have splits or chips. HD doesn't take returns on bent ones unless you return the whole lot. Was a major hassle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than buying in store! I replaced one of the decks at our house and needed to replace the railings as well. The balusters sold in store are redwood at about $3.50 each. As the deck and railings are stained I couldn't see spending $3.50 per baluster. The pressure treated ones are just about $1.00 each which makes them much more economical unless your project requires that real redwood appearance. Shipping was free! So in the long run I saved on materials, time to go to the local HD to get them, and gas to get there. Quality is good, I only rated 4 bars as they were not all cut the same length which meant a bit more cutting for me. Overall wood quality was great. As with most things time will tell how they stand up to the elements.

None of the packages had no culls in them. Most packages had quit a few with problems. The problems were: bowing; mildew; loose knots and cracks; and errant sawcut marks. The cut marks was the most prevalent of the issues. These marks were deep and were always down at the beveled end of the baluster. My client was nice enough to except the use of some of these, since they were in an area of the deck that he didn't feel would be very visable. I don't usually write reviews, and I try to be gracious; leaving room for human error. I felt I needed to speak up on this one however. These issues were very noticeable, and could have been caught in several areas of the process. prior to coming to me.
