Another big advantage of shade sails for Townsville home owners is the way they can considerably increase your available living area.

Made from PVC shade cloth with a plastic coating layer on one side which prevents water from passing through it is very popular for providing a protective barrier between you and the elements. When installing your waterproof shade sails you need to ensure that the plastic coating is facing upwards. Additionally, attention needs to be given to the angles and tension placed upon the shade cloth to ensure that water pooling does not occur. This pooling of water can lead to stretching and ultimately breakage due to the inability for the water to seep as with standard shade cloth.
