While many of our competitors sell play sets that appear to be of equal quality at approximately the same price, there IS a difference. What are some ways that make HAPPY BACKYARDS swing sets higher quality and a better value for your money? Here’s a comparison:
Unlike some of our competitors, Happy Backyards uses heavy-duty, commercial grade hardware to ensure the highest quality standards for your money. This is just one of the many reasons a HAPPY BACKYARD swing set is the better value for the price.
– HIGHER QUALITY LUMBER. Though they may appear nice, the play sets sold at big box retail stores and online retail outlets are often constructed from thin and small dimension lumber. Many of the 4×4 and 4×6 beams from these play sets are made from what we term as “popsicle stick lumber.” These big beams are made by gluing small strips of lumber together. This “popsicle stick lumber” coupled with small hardware and cheap slides will lead to a play set that is rickety after a short period of time. Many of our “high end” competitors use this same type of construction.
–CHEMICAL-FREE WOOD. All of our play sets are made from redwood and/or cedar. Redwood and cedar are ideal for use in outdoor applications due to their natural decay and insect resistant properties without the use of chemicals. Beware of chemically treated lumber.
–DOUBLE WALL SLIDES. Our slides are made of double wall construction meaning a stronger, more durable slide that will last for years to come. Stop in and see the difference for yourself!
–SOLID WOOD CORNER UPRIGHT. Some play sets sold at wholesale clubs may seem like a great value. However, take a look at the below picture. Which one would you prefer holding up your play set? The one of the LEFT is a Happy Backyards corner post and the one on the RIGHT is from a wholesale club play set.
–LARGER BOARDS. While it might be hard to tell from an online picture or a showroom floor, a side-by-side comparison shows just how much larger the boards on a HAPPY BACKYARDS play set is compared to the boards of a competitor’s set. See for yourself with these side-by-side picture comparisons taken from the swing sets pictured below. Our boards are significantly larger than a similarly priced swing set from our competitor. Which one would you rather have in your backyard for the same price?
