Excellent. 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!

  • Much easier to trim than wood shims
  • May 10, 2016
  • Recommended Product

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.

Pros Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Install, Light Weight, Multi Use, High Quality of Material, Good Shape Cons i wish i had seen these sooner, should be easier to find in the store

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.

Great for potentially wet areas. They are easy to snap off but only snap off on the area of ridges and the ridges have to face away from the direction you are pulling too. In some cases, when excess hangs off, I just cut it off with a utility knife or chisel. I have used these for window and door installs as well on on my shed foundation. I used them to shim a toilet as well. These are a must have for any area that may be wet.

Nice shims. What I like most is they're moisture proof. If regular wood shims get wet then they can swell. These should probably hold up better.

EASY TO USE --- Worked well. Should last longer than wood shims, especially in damp locations.

Never using wood shims again. These are so much better. Break by hand and don't split.
