While new windows, tankless water heaters, and energy-efficient appliances can be exciting improvements for any homeowner, they aren’t what many would describe as “sexy.” One home improvement project that offers “sexy” visual appeal as well as the benefits of energy efficiency is shade sails. Shade sails are a stylish solution for outdoor shade where traditional awnings and umbrellas won’t work or simply won’t do. They provide artistic and architectural flair while blocking up to 98% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and allow homeowners to create cool and comfortable outdoor living areas, and they prevent the sun from penetrating nearby windows and heating up the home’s interior. Cooler inside temperatures mean less time running the air conditioning on warm summer days. Shade Sails are made with durable and breathable Sunbrella fabric that helps to keep you cool and comfortable even in the hottest weather. These sails are covered with a limited 10 year warranty and provide you with a UV protection factor of up to 98%. Sunbrella’s state-of-the-art solution-dyed acrylic fabric is fade and water resistant. The fabric also resists stains, mildew, and rot. The perimeter of each sail is surrounded with a seatbelt type webbing for increased strength and durability. Each corner has a welded solid marine grade stainless steel attachment ring to aid in attaching the sail to a structurally sound fixing point. With shade sails, combining “sexy” good looks with energy-saving efficiency is possible. They are a colorful and fresh home improvement project that provide real results in comfort and energy-savings.
