This is my second shade sail from Overstock. The first one lasted almost 10 years before the loops at the corners rotted from sun damage. These are a great value considering the sail sites sell them for triple the price. They are very wrinkled when yoiu first put them up but that smooths out over time. I live in Denver and leave it up year round as a porch cover/shade. It fills with snow and I just push the shade up to dump out the snow. Great product. I bought the black this time. Looks good.
I absolutely love my sun sails. I have a very large river rock patio that was very hot and hard to create shade. I had 5 large patio umbrellas that constantly blew over and were not effective at all unless you were sitting directly under them. I originally ordered three triangle sun sails in the white and was disappointed when they came in and realized that they were more of a light tan or Beige. They really need to state that the color is Ivory NOT white. Especially since I was working around a white fence and large white columns. But I ordered three more in black and the contrast between them was perfect. I still wish I had white ones but the look is incredible. Also, you will need more than you think to cover a space and block the sun. They are very effective in blocking most of the sun and look much better than an umbrella or other options....
We have had this ail up for 5 years and it still looks great. So much better than an umbrella over outdoor dining set. Have to buy better ropes or cables. the ones that come with it are not good. Wish I could find another just like it. Nice dark grey/black
I bought this shade to go with another one that I purchased but never used. I'm using it to create cover for a stone patio that is off the lower level of house. I didn't use the screws and cords that came with it but black bungee cords that I purchased elsewhere. This way way it can be put up and taken down very easy. It looks great, creates shade but is not waterproof.
