Addressing Shade Sail Damage
On the surface shade sails may look fine after installation but they are prone to damage across several factors. While shade sails are made of high-quality fabric primarily meant to protect public areas like playgrounds, parks, parking spaces, patios, etc from the sun, they also have to deal with other elements.
Apart from UV radiation, shade sails need to bear the constant shifting temperatures, fierce winds, rains, and sometimes even hail. Not to mention shade sails also have to deal with plenty of tension across every anchor point of the installation.
This demonstrates the daily wear and tear shade sails experience over the course of time. It’s for this reason that we at Shade Wise use the highest quality products to minimise damage in our shade sails, not just the fabric but also for the anchor connectors.
How to know that it is time for shade replacement? There are some signs which tell you that you need to have your shade sails replaced. Read on to know more.
A dirty shade sail can be a sign that it is having a hard time and often needs a clean or replacement to continue to be an effective shade solution. Dirt and sometimes algae can grow on the shade sail and can reduce its effectiveness as well as its ability to resist harsh winds.
In case you are planning to redesign your garden,then you might have to replace the shades.
You can prefer the shade sails according to your new design and landscape.
As the shade sail is exposed to harsh winds and weather, there are chances of the shade sail falling down on the ground. To prevent this situation, you need to keep an eye on several factors such as tension problems, damage on the anchor points and also signs of stitching failure. If you witness the sails flapping along the wind and aren’t taut you could have a tension problem with your shade sails. A corroded anchor point is another sign of damage and must require immediate fix since it can impact the whole structure of your shade sail. You must also look for damage in the sails themselves, specifically any signs of tearing or holes.
These are also some of the most important signs that your shade sails are not safe, and you need to get them replaced or repaired ASAP by our sail repair experts at Shade Wise.
In case you have decided to change the entire look of your home, then you can also get your shade sail replaced. Also, if you are not changing the entire design but thinking about painting it again, then you might need to change the shade sail and install a new one which is suitable to the new color.
Shade sails can last as long as 30 years if they are well looked after. However, due to factors like harsh weather or blazing heat, the shade sail damage could occur before time. After about 8-10 years the sails usually need to come down for a clean and re-sew. You can get any smaller holes stitched again, any larger holes may need to be patched or the sail replaced completely.
