Please describe the project specifications

This project was presented as a pool area approx. 25' x 40' and rear of the house 20' x 60' with a Western sun exposure.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The purpose of this project was a shade solution to the pool area and also cut down on the solar gain to the back of the house. They asked us to design, engineer, fabricate and install shade sails.

What is unique or complex about the project?

This beautiful residence backs up to the foothills and gets a fair amount of wind. It is also bordered on the back by a public walking path. Shade Sails give the residence much needed privacy while walkers are afforded a visual treat as they pass by.

What were the results of the project?

The Client is very happy. We achieved the pool shade requested and the heat reduction on the back of the house is substantial. We have gotten many inquiries from passerby's and 1 residential project.
