I couldn't find Deckorators balusters in a ~30" size, so I ordered 212 Dextrusions 30 3/8" balusters for a custom railing I was putting together. When I opened the box (which was WAY too weak for the weight it was carrying. Two large holes were on either end of it.), I couldn't believe what I saw.
95% of the balusters were utter crap. They looked like they were cut by a drunken 9 year old with a dull sawzall blade. In addition to the horrible cuts, many had chips in the middle and a few had dents. What garbage.
I did get my money refunded. But I'm out the ~$30 for return shipping and the huge hassle I had to go through AND the time I lost.
Learn from my mistake.
