Vinyl lattice can also be custom cut to fit a project and shipped directly to the installation site, reducing costs of overages in materials and transport. These cost saving allows you to create a large, great-looking fence that  doesn’t break the bank.

You can seal wooden fences, but they will still require occasional repairs if they are not regularly maintained. When you’re designing your backyard and trying to decide what type of privacy walls to install, one of the most important things to take into consideration is how the walls will hold up to elements like rain, sun, and wind. Some walls are more resistant to these elements than others, and lattice walls are one of the most resilient types of fences. If you live in an area with a lot of rain, a lattice wall may be your best option.
