Our new addition is snug and cozy thanks to Sailshades. They are so beautiful, too. – Mrs. F.E.C. , Middletown, RI
They are up and operating and look nice. The installer thought your system and hardware was good. – Acorn Structures, Long Lake, MN
Just to let you know that the Sailshades which you made for us last spring have been absolutely perfect. They are beautifully made. – R. M, Hingham, MA
The curtain is so lovely, we are moving some of the plants so that more of the curtain shows. – D. W., Carlisle, MA
I am writing to tell you how much we’ve enjoyed our Sailshades. They are extremely practical, but to the casual observer, they look like most attractive roman shades. The decorator fabric makes them an integral part of the room. In short we love them! They are sturdy, handsome, easy to maintain, and fit the windows so well that they do exactly what they are supposed to do – keep the heat in or out. – P. G., Cambridge, MA.
Sailshades are so adaptable to drafty old New England houses. The solution you provided for us worked out perfectly. We are much warmer and the simple design is lovely. – Mrs. W. B., Westport, MA
For 30 years, your Sailshades still function well, only slightly faded to pastel in our South facing bedroom, and as you may recall, re-covered in our living room after 15 years. (In the same period we have purchased six new cars.) They have saved our SE facing living room from overheating in summer. We just last year added A.C., so now they help with those costs. Of course, with our 200 sq feet of Sailshades, we have saved nearly a gallon per sq foot per winter. We only regret, seeing your new site, not having art on our Sailshades, an added expense at the time that seems stingy to have rejected, in hindsight. – A.P., Southeastern Massachusetts
We were charmed when we first looked at the house in Padanaram, perched on a hill, overlooking the harbor. The large kitchen had these attractive canvas shades that were replicated in the upstairs bedrooms. We bought the house and soon learned that not only were the shades attractive but they were very effective temperature control additions – keeping the rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And then we met the second owner of the house (here have only been four owners since it was built in 1920) and were amazed to learn that the shades were over 30 years old! We love the shades and are so happy that Sailshade is continuing with the line of creative, artistic and energy efficient shades. – S.G., South Dartmouth, MA
