Which is better, metal or wood swing sets?

A metal swing set is more durable than a wooden one. A wooden swing set doesn’t last as long as a metal swing set which is not good playground equipment for a park and wood swing sets may take long to construct and can be quite costly.

When should I buy a swing set?

While most kids and parents alike associate the carefree fun of playing on a swing set with the summertime, playsets are actually fun year-round. In fact, late fall and early winter can be the best time to buy a swing set.

Do playsets lower property value?

In most cases, adding a playset to your property will not make a difference to your property taxes nor will it trigger a reassessment of your property’s value. Most regulations do not consider playsets to be permanent structures.

What is the best swing set?

Basically you have residential, commercial, steel and wood. I like my stuff to last a lifetime, so I choose to pay a little more for quality. The heavier duty, the better. I choose galvanized steel over wood. Powder coating is okay too. The other thing I want is to swing high and I don’t want the unit to jump, so it is important to put the legs in concrete. As I always say, you get what you pay for.
