Rated 1 out of 5 These panels cannot handle the temperatur changes of the weather without cracking and bowing.
This product obviously isn't designed to be used outdoors. If it were, it would be able to handle temperature changes of the weather without cracking and bowing. Every panel I have installed has cracked due to the poor quality of the vinyl. I have tried several different methods of hanging it, as well as having a carpenter hang a few panels, and it still cracks and bows.
It is truly garbage. Buy wooden panels and stain them. You will be much happier. Check the other reviews.

I bought 30 of these one year ago and not one survived the summer. I fallowed the installation instructions perfect and everyone of them started to warp and crack. Even the 2 that i didn't use and put in the shed cracked from the heat. Terrible service from the manufacture and bogus warranty. they wont help after 10 months good luck on the lifetime warranty

Put a large panel of the white, vinyl privacy-style lattice on the very end of my front porch for a little more privacy and it looks as good today in 2014 as it did back in 2009! I'm thrilled that it has worked so well and have had zero problems with it! It must, however, be installed just right to stay put and we also added a lovely two-sided frame for it to give it a more finished appearance. The framing pieces were also from HD and went up around the lattice like a picture frame and is held in place by special type of white caulking. We are now going to get another section of this to secure the open end of our garden fence which backs up to our large shed. To keep critters out of the garden, this lattice will be perfect there and will keep the critters from squeezing through the larger openings on the normal-size lattice. So, I guess you see why I'm a huge fan of this stuff! We live in NC and have very hot days and severely cold ones too, so this vinyl larttice was made to last decades.

largely because of painting/maintenance, I paid a premium price (more than cedar Panels) and purchased 9 of these, to underpin my walkout deck.. I framed each panel on a 4x4 post and used the recommended moldings, a $300+ investment. I liked to finished look, but noticed after a week or so the panels were "bowing". I used 1x2 's on all 4 side and front and back to frame each panel. But did not screw to the lattice, so it could, as recommended "float" with temperature change. We had a very windy day and all 3 of the panels on one side blew out and broke and shortly after two of the three on the opposing end did the same, the material is way to brittle. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. I am now going to rebuild and use wooden lattice, so I now I am out the $300+ investment. I now will spend another $300+ for cedar panels. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!

I've used this Vinyl Lattice on several projects and am totally happy with it. I even re-did the exterior walls on my 12 X 40 ft patio. The previous owner had really made a mess of it. I was able to use all the existing panels. Had a little difficulty lining-up the lattice slats because of the way he cut them to about 7 ft lengths. They now look great. Only problem is: I nailed them without allowing for expansion in the summer heat. They do tend to warp a bit but not really bad.
