Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CODW Expands and contracts way too much, and tears apart.
Installed two 4x8 panels (horizontally) attached to existing wooden posts to give some patio privacy. Used 48 feet of the edging around whole lot, and wood screws to attach, holes for screws bigger than screws. Project done in Spring, temperature around 70. Later, when summer sun hit them, they warped and bowed - temperature around 100. Then winter comes, and temperatures down to zero, the contraction just pulled them away from the screws, and 'they all fall down'. Worthless product unless used in moderate climate with no temperature differentials (where in the USA does that occur?). Probably work fine on a Caribbean island. Needless to say receipt was not kept, so cannot tak advantage of what may also be worthless - a "limited lifetime warranty", since they died and so are beyond their lifetime!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty DO NOT BUY !!!
Product was easy to cut and work with, but after one winter, it split in so many places I couldn't even piece it back together. Company claims it has installation instructions, but I did not see any.
They will not stand behind their product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by perkyguy Very disappointed
I bought 6 of these panels in June. They are marketed as "won't rot, split or peel". Within 4 months, they were already breaking. I attached them to the roof of a pergola by drilling holes and installing nails through the holes into 2x6 framing. The nails were smaller than the holes to prevent pressure against the lattice panels. Photos are attached showing what the lattice looked like 5 months after installation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Karen Easy Fencing for Raised Beds
I used a table saw to cut a sheet of this lengthwise into 1-foot-wide strips, then screwed them to posts around the top of a raised bed to keep out small critters (ie, my cats, who enjoy running amok in the beds). From a distance, this small amount of the cedar color is pretty close to wood.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Daddyfixitinrichmond Sun will cause it to crack
Put this around a carport to add some privacy. The side that doesn't get any sun is fine, the side that gets the sun has become brittle and cracked. The end pieces used to hold the lattice in place have even broken into segments so I have taken it down. The cold winter causes it to shrink and fall out of the surround holding it in place. The sun causes it to expand and sag. Now the six panels I originally put up are down to 3 and hoping they will stay up until the end of summer or until I find another solution. Took off the end pieces and just screwed the lattice directly to the carport to try and save what I can. The side that doesn't get any direct sun has been just fine, seems to be less shrinkage and sagging, may be because I cut those pieces shorter to walk down a brick border next to the carport.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by crossbound7 fell apart in a year
I had these panels, in green, installed around my deck and they looked really great. But in less than a year they started coming apart, first around the edges where they were fastened and then the crisscrosses started coming apart too. I assume from extreme temps in North Texas but I thought they would be made to withstand it. I plan to replace them with WOOD and stain them green.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Product not durable
Used lattice around pool deck. Installed summer of 2012. During the hottest part of the summer the lattice began to sag during the heat of the day and would tighten back up when it cooled. It is now March 2013 and the lattice is cracking at the criss crosses and where fastened to the deck. I guess the material is shrinking due to the cold temperature and is pulling itself apart. The material is not stable under temperature changes. Major product defect and should be recalled by manufacturer. Big waste of time and money. Not happy!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by powegian Worthless product
Used 10 of these panels for a patio cover with joists spaced 24 inches. They sag so bad that I have had to place wood across the joists to support the lattice. Was hoping they would last longer than the wooden variety ( which is no better due to poor construction). Hard to work with since they are so flimsy.
