I don't know how many on here may know what they are, but shade sails are an economic way to add shade to any outdoor area. Are there any installers around here that have done a number of these?

Sorry, I don't. But bumping for you so you can get an answer. (BTW, I just looked them up because I've never heard of them. They are really cool! )

Looks pretty simple to install to me. Check out Coopers Canvas on Rt.6(behind the playtime by Aldies) they might have an idea, if not have one made from Sunbrella fabric and install it yourself. Like I said seems pretty simple, two raised and lowered tie in points. 6x6 posts, sono tubes and some quickcrete and your set. Cable turnbuckles for tension and the wire needed is all Lowe's or Home Depot.

You might try calling Muldoon Window Door & Awning in Scranton. They are a true local company that has been in business many years. They do awnings, carports, gazebos(?) and such.

I don't know about 'shade sails' .

Is this an awning or canvas you roll down on the side of your porch? My brother and I as kids had lots of fun with the canvas sun screen. When the wind hit it it flapped like a sail and our porch became a ship. Add wooden wash props as spears and we became Sinbad and crew. Also pirates and later monster shark hunters.
Good times. You think about how kids today miss out on fun like that only having computer and video games to play with.

I want a regular canvas awning that sticks out and provides shade and a bit more privacy. I would rather purchase them from a local business. Any suggestions?
