In general, installation of a shade sail or shade structure can take anywhere from a few hours to multiple days or more. Many times installation requires drilling into building fascia, drilling into existing concrete slabs, or pouring new concrete footings to support the structure. Installation may also include machinery for mixing concrete, digging holes and generally performing the installation of your structure. This is an inconvenience that cannot be avoided. Most of our commercial clients are more than aware of this scenario. However, especially if you are placing this structure in a residential application, be sure to make your neighbors and/or customers aware of when the structure will be installed.
In regards to the installation of shade sails, we have a downloadable pdf for do-it-yourselfers and those who purchase our standard sizes.
