Shade Sails

How much does it cost for a  shade sail?
For the home, our custom made, quality and stylish  shades vary in price as each job is different. Depending on the size/shape of shade, number of attachment points, fittings, poles and site considerations we suggest you budget around $1500 for the shade sail as a minimum. For posts, please budget around $750+GST per post (powdercoated & installed).
 
What about strong winds?
Our high quality fabric shade sails can withstand most wind as long as the tension has been set. We use only the best quality stainless fittings to ensure the strength and longevity of your new sun shade system. We stand by our workmanship and product.
 
Is a shade sail my only option?
No, we supply awnings, umbrellas, Wave Shades & fixed pergola shade - lots of options!
 
How long does it take to install?
Once we receive confirmation we usually take 3-4 weeks to complete. In the high season of summer it can take 6-8 weeks due to demand.
 
Is my shade sail waterproof?
No, shade cloth is porous so rain filters through, but with light drizzle this process may take up to an hour.  Having a well thought out 'pitch' can also keep you dry longer.
 
Waterproof fabric is available if it is a 'must have'. It is more costly as the structure needs to be considerably stronger to accommodate this feature.  It also needs a minimum of 20% slope to ensure there is no ponding.
 
Will it fade?
Most colours have a 10 year UV degradation warranty, however warm colours may begin to fade after 3 years. 
 
Do I need an installer?
These systems are under more tension than most people realise. It is a technical process with specialist tools to successfully erect it correctly. To get a safe, effective finish it is best you let us take the stress out it for you and complete the task. We will quote, advise & install. We may involve a builder if attachments are required on your home.
