SSU Chapter 8: Top Ten Shade Sail Mistakes to Avoid is now available!

The final chapter of Shade Sail University is here. You know how to sell these things. You know how to install them. Now you’ll discover the Top Ten Mistakes to Avoid when designing and installing your shade sails.

It's your job as a good shade sail contractor to explain the pros and cons of triangles vs. 4-sided sails and offer alternatives.

If you only take away one thing from Shade Sail University, make it this list.

Learn these Top Ten Mistakes to Avoid and save yourself the trouble of an unhappy customer or failed project.
