Shade Sails & Structures for Driveways

Shade Sails & Structures for Driveways

July 21st, 2021 · Published to Applications, Car Ports, Shade Sails

There’s no cheaper driveway cover than shade sails and shade structures when it comes to protecting a car from the elements. If your vehicle is becoming weathered, spending days and nights parked on your driveway rather than in the protection of a garage, shade sails and shade structures such as canopies and tension membranes may be the solution you need to protect your car.

Next to owning a home, a vehicle is probably the most significant investment we make, which is why we must protect it as best we can. Leaving a car outside in the elements leaves it naked, not only paint damage from the sun but dents from hail.

Building a carport or garage can cost tens of thousands of dollars. It requires architects, engineers, council, and you then have to deal with at least 3-4 weeks of construction. On the other hand, shade sails and shade structures cost mere thousands and may not require any council approval at all. Best of all, they can in installed in as little as 1-2 days.

Whether you live in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, Tweed Heads, or the Central Coast, if you’re after a shade sail or shade structure to cover your driveway, Global Shade can help!
