The best shade sail solution comes with an onsite shade assessment and quote.
These days it can be easy to purchase a pre-made/ DIY shade sail straight off the shelf at your local hardware store. For the price conscious customer this may be an option, however this won’t be the perfect shade solution! With high quality shade sails there is no one size fits all solution. These type of installations are a quick fix and wont be able to provide you with maximum coverage or a lasting shade solution like a professionally installed shade sail can.
Having a professional shade contractor come out on site allows them to tailor your shade sail or shade structure installation to your homes exact needs. Shade sail installers can also make recommendation as to the best place for fixing points, shade sail orientation and shade sail design so that your shade installation provides maximum coverage.
Their industry expertise and know how will ensure that your shade sail is carefully designed to cover you throughout the entire day. Generally shade sail installers also provide a warranty on this craftsmanship in addition to the shade cloth warranty. Having a professional shade sail contractor install your sail also means that your shade sail will have the correct tension applied, allowing your shade sail to last for many years. A shade sail which has been incorrectly tensioned will flap in the wind, leading to increased maintenance costs and even replacement prior to the end of the shade sails lifespan.
In addition to a professional installation the shade cloth used in a shade sail or shade structure is also very important. Poor quality shade cloths will deteriorate early, costing you more in the long run.
Luckily Rainbow Shade has a range of high quality shade cloth products suited to shade sails and shade structures. For more information on the best type of shade installation for your requirements, head to our installation directory.
