Restore your old Shade Sail and save $$$

After a few short years of service, your Shade Sail will be showing signs of wear and tear. Certainly mildew, road grime and dust will be contaminating your Sail. UV damage to the Shade Sail thread is inevitable and after 5 or 6 years, it may be that your Shade Sail is due for a Full Restitch.

Don’t discard old Shade Sails because of damage or old age

HDPE Shade Sail Fabric is extremely robust with a life expectancy of 50 years. In our experience, a wash and full restitch combined with the original robustness of the Shade fabric, will see your Shade Sail restored to almost as new functionality. We will return it to you in as new condition for around half the price of a new Shade Sail.

Why Repair?

Shade Sail Fabric is High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). The Shadecloth will outlast the thread, which will suffer loss of strength over time due to UV damage. It makes sense (environmentally and economically) to recycle the fabric, rather than buy a new Shade Sail. A Shade Sail which has been broken in a storm has often just come apart at the seams. It will respond well to a full restitch and repair, giving it back its tension and restoring it to as new condition. There is almost no damage that cannot be addressed by our full SHADE SAIL REPAIR Service.

Step 1 - Shade Sail Cleaning

Before we Repair a Shade Sail, we thoroughly wash it in our custom Washout Bay. The Sail is hung and methodically pressure washed on both sides. No chemicals are used, and the waste water is sent to our Grease Trap and Sediment Filter, where it is professionally disposed of by a Waste Contractor.
