Why is Vinyl Better Than Wood?

First off, let’s understand what makes vinyl better than wood when it comes to a playset or swing set! The biggest concern is maintenance when customers are searching for a playset or swing set. Wood swing sets come with multiple concerns. The biggest of all is the constant fear of rotting. Who wants to spend their weekend painting and taking apart their swing set to get every nook and corner to ensure a solid base and bonding? Without paint, your wood swing set is subject to rot, decay, and most importantly splinters!

You don’t want to send your kids out to play and they climb up their tower to get to the top of the slide but hit a rough patch and a splinter goes right into their knee, hand, leg, or arm! That is the worst, taking it from experience! But not with vinyl, offering a smooth surface that doesn’t decay and create rough patches!

What Makes Vinyl Less Maintenance?

Vinyl has many advantages but the one that sticks out the most to customers is the need to constantly check over and maintain disappears!


A Safe Swing Set

Vinyl is the safest play surface when it comes to swing sets. Resisting the urge to crack and splinter under immense amounts of stress from weight and climate conditions protects your child from harm! Furthermore, during the peak of playtime, the summer, we all know the weather gets hot, which means the sun will be baking on your playground. Our vinyl stays cool to the touch and doesn’t heat up, meaning, your child won’t get those harsh burns that come with other play sets!


Easy To Clean

Yes, you heard that right, easy to clean! Almost something that we won’t think of when talking about swing sets, but with vinyl, it makes all the sense in the world! A simple power wash in the spring will brighten those colors you choose, and love to bring them back to their full glory! Our playsets won’t fade either, with the vinyl having UV inhibitors in it, resisting the sun’s harmful UV rays that dull the colors!


We hope you understand that a vinyl swing set is truly the best swing set for kids and families to enjoy. Not only will it make your kids’ day, but it will also make yours as you have the peace of mind that your kids are safe, plus you have nothing to worry about to keep them going!
