If you’re considering purchasing a playset for the backyard, you’ve undoubtedly wondered, “are playsets really worth it?” Here are some of the reasons that a quality swingset or playset is an investment you will be glad you made.
A Safe Place to Explore, Play and Grow
When you purchase a playset for your property, you’re essentially giving your kids a private park where they can enjoy active play with their friends and family safely and under your supervision. In your own yard, playing on a custom playset of your own design, you set the parameters for age appropriate activity, suitable play-friends and environmental surroundings. There’s no place like home, especially when there is a playset.
A One Time Investment
When you’re considering if a play set is worth it, it’s logical to ask, how long a swing set lasts. A quality swing set can last up to 20 years. The life expectancy of a swing set depends on various factors, such as the material being used. Cedar swing sets are extremely durable. Cedar swing sets will last longer than metal swing sets because the wood is rust-resistant and eco-friendly.
Rainbow Play Systems allow you to update your play set as your child grows. For example, a variety of swing options mean your baby bucket swing can be updated for a tire swing as your child grows. As your kid becomes a teen, you can even add a hammock swing for quiet reading or “hanging” with friends.
Do Swing Sets Add Value to Your Home?
One factor to weigh when deciding if a playset is worth it is the retail value of your home. Swing sets may add value to your home, because they are appealing to people with children who are shopping for an ideal place to raise their family. There are several factors that go into determining whether or not your swing set adds value to your property, including:
- Quality: Is your playset made from durable materials, and installed correctly?
- Neighborhood: Is your neighborhood a desirable place to raise a family?
- Appearance: Is your playset attractive and well-maintained?
- Safety: Was the playset designed with child safety standards in mind?
- Condition: Is the playset well maintained and usable for years to come?
To maximize the value of your playset investment, make sure your playset comes with a lifetime warranty, so that you can replace any equipment. A well maintained playset is sure to be seen as an asset to potential buyers!
Your Kids Only Get One Childhood
Children grow, and playsets fuel imagination, encourage healthy active play and provide a backdrop for building social skills. You only get one chance to provide your child with these developmental advantages. And you only have one opportunity to build cherished memories of your child playing for hours in your own backyard.
