Lattice is built by attaching individual strips of wood in a criss-crossing pattern. Usually, the result is small square voids between the wood strips. Lattice is commonly used for the underpinning for porches or decks. They are mostly used for decorative reasons, but they have functionality. They allow for airflow to keep areas under decks dry. If your porch uses block columns and not wood columns, you can still attach the lattice to the block.

  1. 1

    Measure the distance between the centre of the first column to the centre of the second column. Measure the height between the ground and the bottom of the deck or porch railing.

  2. 2

    Cut a piece of lattice to size with a circular saw.

  3. 3

    Place the lattice against the block and mark the areas on the lattice that overlap the block.

  4. 4

    Flip the lattice over and apply concrete wall adhesive to the lattice only on the areas that will touch the block.

  5. 5

    Flip the lattice back over and press it against the block. This will adhere the lattice to the block.
