What is the best location for an awning sail on my deck or patio?

The sail awnings can be installed in a variety of ways. The sail can be flat or with high and low points. A fully flat horizontal sail can interfere with proper tension and can collect rain. Our sales are trained to consider all options to optimize everything possible shadow zone and avoid possible horizontality of the whole.
