[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]If you’ve installed a shade sail in the backyard of your home, you know they’re the perfect solution to sunny days. But did you know they can be real outdoor heroes all year round? Shade sails not only cool down outdoor spaces during the sweltering summer but also provide shelter for winter days and direct sunlight.

Shelter from Winter Weather 

With the coverage of a shade sail, you can enjoy your backyard in comfort despite any frigid winds or cool drizzles. Shade sails also provide a protective barrier from you and harmful UV rays. Though this protection is more evident during warmer days, UV rays are present year-round, and their damaging impact can go nearly unnoticed during the winter months.

Maintenance During Winter Months

Based on the basic technology of a ship’s sail, a shade sail consists of a shade cloth fabric tensioned between several anchor points. While they are built to withstand harsh elements, it is not advised to keep shade sails up during extremely snowy weather.

Removing your shade sails before extreme winter weather conditions like freezing temperatures or hail storms can help prolong the fabric’s lifespan. Before storing your shade sail, make sure it is completely dry to avoid mold. Also, roll the sail instead of folding it and keep it in a protective bag or wrap to prevent creases. 

Shade sails are an easy way to elevate any home all year long. Keep your outdoor spaces comfortable and covered with a shade sail from Awning World! Customize your perfect shade sail today.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
