What to know before buying a shade sail

To be frank, more often than not we run into potential shade sail customers with similar methods of how they plan to purchase a shade solution for their outdoor living or working space.

  1. The online shopper who thinks they are saving bundle by picking up a shade sail for under $100. 
  2. Those that visit a big box store and want a price point just above the online shopper, but need the comfort of talking to someone in person about shade solutions.
  3. The customer who is looking for a trustworthy contractor who; can provide excellent customer service, knows the product they are offering inside and out and stands behind the work they are offering. They also want sturdy construction to handle the Okanagan winds, which means the use of fir posts, or steel powder-coated posts. 

Customer number one will find out that the old saying of if it seems too good to be true, it is. Their online option will most likely only stand up for an equal amount of days to how much they paid for it. Customer number two may get one summer season out of their purchase and usually does not have the expertise to build a sturdy structure to put up the sail by themselves.
