There are some different types and styles of swing sets to choose from, all dependent on your family's needs and wants. Also, by hiring a professional contractor to build or assemble the swing set properly, you can be sure it is set up in the safest way possible.
- Wooden swing sets are the most popular swing sets available, and also enjoy the most durability. They're a good way to add style and character to any backyard, and are also known to last the longest. They don't rust like metal swing sets do, and are usually resistant to rot. Since they are of such high quality they can be a bit pricey.
- Metal swing sets tend to be more affordable than wooden ones. They are very light and won't take up as much room in your backyard larger wooden sets. Since they are so light, they can easily be moved around. When purchasing a metal swing set, try to stray away from poor quality, cheaply made ones. They will rust quickly. You will get your money's worth if you stick to better quality.
- If you have any little ones in your family, a toddler swing set might be a wise decision. These swing sets are built with safety as the first priority, and are usually lower to the ground. They can be made out of metal or wood and are also very affordable.
