As the title suggests, I am looking at installing a shade sail to provide some shade for a newly built patio.
The house is brick and tile and based on the shape of the house, it would make sense to have the sail partially attached to the house.
I've done some reading and it would seem that due to the tremendous lateral force applied to the connection points, you have to think really carefully about how you attach your sail.
I was wondering if anyone had any pointers, etc...
The house has brick veneer and I have a feeling that simply attaching a sail to these bricks (even trying to attach to as many as possible using one of these plates) might not cut it...
Alternatively, I might look at getting a company to come and do the job rather than risking to eff it up myself so I would welcome any review/suggestion on these type of companies around Auckland (North Shore)
