Install Lattice Around Deck

Submitted by: Michel M, Norwood, OH Friday, July 12, 2013

What would be the cost to install 160 sq feet of lattice to be put around deck, deck 3 1/2 feet off ground?

  1. Without more information it’s pretty near impossible to come up with anything but a wild guess on the pricing. Will posts need to be installed to support the lattice? Will they be attached to the deck or dug into the ground? Do you have a picture of the deck available?

    • attach to deck, already enough post to attach to. maybe 1- 3ft treated 2×4 to attach 2 pieces of lattice, rest is easy.

      • It sounds like it would be about a 1/2 day job. Depending on the hourly rate that the handyman charges you should expect to pay anywhere from $150 – $250 for labor. Materials would be extra. Hope this is of some help.

    • Patio deck of 3/4″ 4×8 plywood sheets. built already. Need cost on 2×4 frames of 4ft wide x 7ft tall boxed in and attached for about 6 sections. Then the frames will be empty at the last 3-4 boxed squares (above and lattice except just the lower square frames about 3’ft x 4’ft wide), side by side like all the others (like a large lattice wall 4’x 7′) bottom of 2×4 frame will be attached to the decking (wide sides out) the upper frames attached to the over hang ceiling in corrugated sheet metal at a slight angle. So a wall about 30+ ft long resting (screwed) to the top of the edge od the deck x 7’ft tall. Each section will be about 4’x 7′ in two pieces (top and bottom) screwed together at the sides. The last 3-4 sections will not have top lattice sections attached so just 4′ x7′ but lattice on bottom only. If you email me I will send you my best of a set of diagrams and/or plans to help understand. Plastic (lrg hole) lattice cheapest but straightest 2’x4’x’8 untreated 2 bys. Sorry I’m not better at this kind of thing. I assure you it would be simple yet time consuming. I’ll let you fill in the blanks. Thanks for your time and efforts’.
