If you’ve chosen to install shade sails for your patio in Arizona you’ve made an excellent decision. Shade sails are beautiful and a great way to provide adequate coverage for your outdoor seating area while keeping costs low. This investment is one you won’t regret making, but it’s important to make sure that you’re getting what you pay for. As with anything, shade sails can be installed very well or kind of poorly, so it’s important to be on the lookout for any potential problems and to know what a good job looks like so you know what to expect for your own installation.
Shade sails are not meant to be loose and flapping in the wind, so if your shade sails are moving a lot right after the installation this could certainly point to a bigger problem later down the road. If they’re on the looser end now, after a few weeks, or even days, of weather they may come entirely loose. Although the company installing them should come fix it, since it was their mistake, it’s best to be on the lookout for this right at the beginning should you need to nip it in the bud.
It Shouldn’t Take Forever, Something Could Be Wrong
Installing shade sails in Arizona is certainly not easy and of course it all depends on how many you’re getting installed and how complicated you want the layout to be, but ultimately installing shade sails isn’t nearly as complex as other outdoor shade options. As a result, your installation shouldn’t be taking a really long time and if it does it may be a clue that something is wrong.
It may be time to check with the crew installing them that there’s no problems putting the poles in the ground or getting everything to fit in the order that you want it too. (don't worry though, Arizona Shade Sails does the job right every time)
Check After The First Serious Weather
If your shade sails were installed on a quiet day weather-wise then you’ll want to make sure you check on them right after a storm or strong winds. If they’ve been installed properly there should be no problems with them at all, but if they were installed not quite right they could have come a bit loose or the material may have ripped.
It’s always a great idea to check on them the first time this happens after the installment to make sure your expectations have been met.
When it comes to your expectations for your shade sails installations you should expect professionals to do it quickly and efficiently, keeping the shade sails tight and level and you should keep an eye on it afterwards to make sure it was done properly and correctly. Shade sails are an excellent choice and if you go with an experienced, professional company your expectations should be met and even go beyond that.
