Typically, when parents want to purchase a play set, they head out to Wal-Mart, Home Depot or warehouse stores, thinking that they will find their best deals there. However, as you compare play sets, there are several things that you need to keep in mind:
Without a doubt we want our children to be as safe as possible so be sure to select a play set that is constructed using sturdy and long-lasting 4x4 and 4x6 construction. Look for heavy duty bolts and screws without nails or staples. Be sure the play set is sturdy enough for you. Look for a wood that protects against rot and infestation (the newest treatment is MCQ Yellawood pressure treated pine). Let’s face it, you’re in the South and we have an abundance of humidity and termites.
