Playground Shade Installation in Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC

Our parent company, MD Materials Playgrounds, has been in business for 30 years. We know playgrounds and playground shade structures. During the years,  we’ve installed dozens of shade structures throughout Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC. If you need references, we can provide plenty from many established educational organizations and companies. Our work crews have personally installed several types of shade structures, mostly four-column squares and rectangles, but also other types like cantilever shades, in which the posts are located on one side of the shade, maximizing space directly underneath the shade.

We always let prospective customers know that installing a smaller shade structure isn’t rocket science, but it helps to know someone with some basic construction experience. For larger shades, the truth is, it really helps to have an experienced company like ours; there are certain considerations, like working with large steel posts, that you only learn through having gone through the effort in the past.

How to Order a Shade Sail for your playground?

We understand that purchasing a playground shade and having it installed is a substantial investment for your school, daycare or business. However, we are here to help every step of the way and we are more than happy to provide written estimates for the cost of the shade canopies, structure, shipping and installation. We have installed dozens of shade structures throughout Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia. If you are interested in having a shade structure installed for your school, please see the steps below.

1. Measures the dimensions of the area that you want shaded (length x width) and also the ‘height’ of the shade entrance. (If you do not have this information, we can also visit your playground to help you take measurements or you may email us photos.

2. Determine what type of playground shade structures that you will need.  We carry a variety  of shades: Square and Rectangle, Umbrella, Cantilever, Hexagon/Octagon  and Sail Shades.

3. Once you have a general idea of what type of shade and measurements, our operations manager will visit your site in person.

4. After we visit the site and the type of shade and measurements has been determined, we can then provide a written estimate before any work is started.
