My wife and I just had a patio built and are trying to decide how to cover it. I love the idea of the shade sails, as you suggested. I really like the unique shapes. Are shade sails a durable option? Reply beautifulpatio.com on July 15, 2016 at 9:24 pm Hi Justin, you’re welcome! The quality can differ depending on the brand. I’ve seen warranties up to 10 years. It would depend on the wheather conditions also. Reply Ridley Fitzgerald on March 24, 2017 at 12:59 pm These are some great ways to shade a patio. I love your idea about using those shade sails. Those are cool, because they are so abstract and stylish. We need some shade on our new deck, and I think those are a good method. Reply Megan Alder on March 28, 2017 at 3:11 pm Shade sails seem like they’d be the easiest to deal with when searching for outdoor shading. I’ve been wanting to get some shading over our porch out back, but I just haven’t found the right look. I’ll just have to talk to my husband about what look he’d like best for the backyard porch.
