Are shade sails easy to install?

While residential shade sails are generally easy to install, the installation of commercial shade sails may be more difficult depending on the complexity and the size of the structure. For this reason, it’s highly recommended to hire a shade sail expert to ensure an easy and smooth set up process from start to finish. The correct canopy and shade sails installation is also important because if the structure is not set up properly, it may not be able to last as long as initially estimated.

Can you install shade sails yourself?

Yes, you can install a shade sail or a canopy yourself. However, it is highly recommended to do that with a specialist because improper shade sails installation may reduce the life of your structure. Correct installation ensures that your shade sail is able to withstand the test of time and the constantly-changing weather conditions over the year.

How long does it take to install a shade sail?

Exactly how long it will take to install a shade sail will depend on the size of the structure and the complexity of the project. However, it’s generally estimated that a custom shade installation will take about 4 weeks, ensuring that all sail support posts are secured.
