Why Winter is the Perfect Time to get a Shade Sail Installed

When you think about installing a shade sail, your mind probably jumps to spring or summer. However, winter can actually be an ideal time to get your shade sail project underway. We believe that planning and installing your shade sail during the winter months can save you time, reduce stress and ensure you’re ready for the sunny days ahead.

Beat the Rush and Plan Ahead

Spring and summer are obviously the peak times for outdoor projects, which means suppliers and installers are often booked up. By planning and installing your shade sail in winter however, you can avoid the pre-summer rush and ensure you’re already set up for those blistering hot days ahead.

Pre-Planning: The Key to Longevity

Successful shade sail installation relies heavily on thorough pre-planning. While shade sails are relatively simple to install, meticulous preparation ensures its durability and effectiveness. This involves considering the correct angle for optimal shade and efficient water runoff. It also includes deciding on the best mounting options, whether freestanding poles or attachments to existing structures.

Consulting with a specialist can be invaluable at this stage. They can help you navigate potential issues and suggest the appropriate design choices for coastal areas prone to sea spray, and other environmental factors. If needed, they can assist in securing necessary approvals from local councils or body corporate entities, ensuring your project complies with all regulations.

The Importance of Thorough Planning
