Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much does a shade sail usually cost?
A. Our shade sails average around 4 to 8 thousand dollars for residential. Commercial shade sails are almost always much more in cost due the the scale of the projects and sizes required.
Q. Why are your shade sails so expensive?
A. We use extremely heavy duty shade sail material and fabric. (this IS NOT cheap home depot stuff that only last a year or two). The price includes the full installation - Labor, Poles, Cables, Brackets, Hardware, Fabric, Etc. A lot of work and design time goes into every customer's shade sail.
Q. How long will my shade sails last?
A. Our shade sails come with a 10 year manufacture warranty. We've see that most our shade sail fabric last over 20 years.
Q. How long does it take to install a shade sails structure?
A. Usually about a month. We first do an on-site estimate and take measurements. From there we design your shade sails specific to your needs. We then set the posts. After this is done we order the fabric and parts. Lastly we stretch and install the sails to perfection.
Q. Why would I want a Shade Sail over a Pergola or Gazebo?
A. Generally for two reason. 1. Shade Sails offer the best shade experience. Period. They also offer 100% UV ray protection. 2. They carry a unique and classy design that no other patio or pool covers out there offer. It really creates a unique and beautiful landscape!
Q. OK - But it's just so expensive. Why so much?
A. Again - they saying goes - "you get what you pay for!" We find that most of our clients are originally the budget pinchers who made the mistake of going cheap the first time. Save yourself the headache and pay the extra money to have a quality shade sail structure that will last.
