How much lattice do I need?
Lattice, like most other sheet materials, typically comes in 4x8 ft. sheets. If you're going with a vinyl lattice, it's not cheap, so you want to be sure to purchase the correct amount for your job. Use our calculator below to help you determine how many sheets of lattice you'll need, along with how many fasters you'll require to install the lattice.
It's usually cost-effective to purchase sheet material, however, you can create a large amount of material waste if your job dimensions don't divide evenly into the size of the lattice sheet.
In some cases, if your dimensions do not divide evenly into the size of the sheet, you can fasten a strip of wood at the top or bottom of the surface you'll be applying the lattice to. This will help to "consume" some of the vertical space normally taken by the lattice, while providing a decorative touch.
