Buying the Right Lattice Panels for Your Needs
Lattice Panels Come in Several Materials
Consider the material that lattice panels are available in before making a purchase. Different materials are suitable for different needs, price points, and more.
- Wood lattice panels are a classic and traditional choice. They are typically lightweight and affordable, and wood lattice is great for painting other colors or staining for a perfect finish. But wood lattice panels are not pest-resistant and can be degraded over time from exposure to the elements
- Plastic lattice panels are more durable but are still affordable. Plastic lattice panels typically come in crisscross or similar patterns and are available in a wide range of colors. They can be painted but not finished with a stain. Plastic lattice panels are resistant to pests and the weather
- Vinyl lattice panels are more durable than wood but may be more expensive depending on your color and style preferences. Vinyl lattice panels come in a wide range of styles, including crisscross, floral, and boardwalk designs
- PVC lattice panels or polyvinyl chloride lattice panels can be a great choice if you’re looking for something durable and long-lasting. These are resistant to the weather and pests and can be painted in a wide variety of colors
Consider Prices for Lattice Panels
You can find lattice panels at many different price ranges. More affordable panels may be better for bigger jobs or for folks who are on a budget. Pricier panels may be manufactured with special methods, such as pressure treatments that provide additional durability.
A panel’s price can also be affected by its size. Larger panels are typically more expensive than smaller panels. Try to measure how much space you need to cover with your lattice panels before buying – it may be more or less economical to buy a lot of smaller panels or a few larger panels depending on your yard’s exact specifications.
Do the Lattice Panels Provide Pest-Resistance?
Some lattice panels are better with pest resistance. Typically, wood panels are most susceptible to damage from termites and other insects. Vinyl, PVC, and other panels are better if your area has a lot of these bugs to worry about.
Consider Lattice Panel Style, Color, and Size
Lastly, think carefully about the style, color, and size of your lattice panels before purchasing. Different styles can evoke different aesthetics and be more or less appropriate for different needs. For example, a lattice fence has panels that are suspended between posts. Most lattice fence panels have very small gaps to increase privacy, so they rely on certain lattice shapes that don’t leave a lot of open gaps for your neighbors to look into your backyard or see through to your porch. Other styles are less suitable for privacy but are very aesthetically pleasing.
Lattice panel colors can also affect the end result of your backyard or porch project. Some panels, due to their wood material, come in a beautiful color right off the bat. But it may still be wise to finish the wood with paint or apply a staining finish for protection.
You can, fortunately, paint lattice panels in a variety of colors no matter what material they’re made of.
