Looking for a lovely shade sail for your patio? We got you!
We understand how difficult it can be to find the right type of shade sail when you have tons of options to choose from.
To help you out, we have enlisted some factors you should consider when planning your sun sail patio covering.
Shade sails come in a bunch of fun styles – triangular, rectangle, square, and many more. You need to decide which type of style will suit your patio covering. If you’re not sure, you can take outside help – ideally of a professional.
Please note that a triangular sail offers less shade than one in a square or rectangular shape. If your purpose of getting a shade sail is purely functional, we’ll suggest you get the one in a four-sided style. But for a practical and stylish appeal, you can layer two triangular shades across one another.
Another important thing to consider is the fabric of your shade sail. Like the style, shade sails come in several fabrics. They are available in parasol, polyester, polytex, soltis 86, phifertex, etc.
You should choose the one that offers you maximum UV protection. This does not mean you need to get a sail in a thick material. It’s possible for a fabric to be light yet keep you safe from harmful sunlight.
Of all the fabrics, soltis offers the best shade. Shade sail materials such as Polytex and Parasol, darker shades will provide a higher shade level while lighter shades will have a lower shade level. Polyester shades are visually-appealing as well as easy on the pocket.
You can find shade sails in almost all colors from light shades to dark ones to those in-between. The color you choose your shade sail in will largely depend on your personal preference.
Usually, the dark-colored covers provide full protection from the sun and heat. However, the same can’t be said about the light-colored ones.
Also, light-colored fabrics get dirty quickly so, keep this in mind when getting a shade sail in a light hue.
4. Get It from a Reliable Company
Quality is everything, so make sure you buy a high-quality shade sail from an upscale company. If you get your shade sail exclusively made, we would suggest you hire skilled people for the job.
Keep these four factors in mind when getting a shade sail for your patio. Following these tips will ensure your satisfaction and happiness for the product.
