There are several things you can do to make sure you get the most out of your shade sail, if you're spending thousands of dollars of something you will want to make sure that it's going to survive the test of time and that you can get as much use out of it
Use High Quality Fabric
Make sure to use a commercial grade shade cloth to ensure maximum longevity out of your sail, the better quality your sail the more resistant it will be to flapping and collecting pools of water, both of these things can degrade the quality of your sail.
The Rainbow Z16 is a commercial-grade cloth that is durable and made to survive Australia's climate, there's lots of different colours available and the Z16 is suitable for a range of shade structures so you can easily create a cool, sun safe environment.
Figure Out The Logistics Before Installing
It might seem obvious but it's important to figure out all the logistics before you organise purchasing your sail, this is because there's lots of different factors that can influence the curvature of your sail and how durable it will be.
The shape and size of your sail will ultimately affect the coverage you receive, so it's important to plan these things out beforehand so it can be installed smoothly.
Maintain Your Sail
Like most things your sail's longevity really depends on how well you look after it, sails should be tensioned properly to reduce flapping and can be taken down fairly easily to be cleaned which should be done from time to time. It's easy to go buy a cheap sail that will deteriorate over a couple years and waste your money but it's even easier to do a bit of research and take care of your sail and get decades out of it.
The most important thing is making sure that you look after your shade sail, this will ensure that you get the most out of it and you will not have to worry about replacing it after a couple years, this is why it's important to pay that little bit extra to get a commercial-grade shade cloth that has fabric warranty instead of buying a cheap alternative that will lose quality over the years.
