Why choose wooden swing sets as opposed to other options
used in residential playground equipment? First and foremost, the price
must be considered. Swing sets made of wood typically cost more than
outdoor swing sets made with steel or plastic. However, the additional
cost is well worth it. Wooden swing sets are sturdier than most metal
swing sets, supporting around 50 pounds more per child than typical
outdoor play sets. Wooden outdoor swing sets also tend to last longer
than metal and plastic swing sets, which start to show signs of wear and
tear within a few years. In addition, wooden sets made with
pressure-treated lumber can have guarantees from 10 to 25 years,
assuring that your quality playset will not need to be replaced.
Wooden swing sets are also more versatile in a backyard
setting as opposed to metal or plastic, and, with all the different
stains and sealants on the market, you can have a one of a kind play
set. Matching the play set with other elements in your yard can make for
a very appealing setting for you and your family. With many of the
metal and plastic outdoor swing sets on the market, color choice is at
best, very minimal. Wooden swing sets usually offer a wider selection of
colors and options, as well as a more natural look in your backyard,
blending with nature to offer beautiful and versatile wooden swing sets.
So, when choosing outdoor swing sets, remember you will be looking at
it for years to come. Make it beautiful!
