    Won't last long

    on 27th Aug 2015

    I bought the Chesapeake playset 3 years ago for my kids because it had great reviews & seemed very sturdy. I especially liked that it had a high weight capacity for the swings (I didn't want the kids to have all the fun on them--LOL!). Initially, one of the critical wood beams was very split so they had to send me a replacement, then the replacement turned out to have just as big of a split so they had to send me yet another replacement. Fortunately that one was fine so I could rehire the guys to come assemble it. After about a year, it started getting wobbly even though we tighten the screws every few months like is recommended. It's now been 3 years & it looks like it's a decade old. It is peeling/cracking like crazy (& we do stain it regularly) & I hate to watch how much it wobbles back & forth when my 9 year old swings (& he only weighs 63lbs, so it's still not a lot of weight). All in all, I wish we could have afforded a Rainbow playset or waited longer to save up for one because this is very disappointing. At this point, we can't afford to buy a new set after everything we spent on the last one & we worry that unless we got the super expensive version the same thing would happen again. :-(

SAFETY GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW:

Parents Role in Playground Safety:
While we do everything we can to maximize children's safety, parents should keep an eye on their children during play to ensure they are using the play structure as intended. Here are a few suggestions to keep your kids backyard play area safe: ASTM guidelines recommended a 6’ safety perimeter around your swing set as well as overhead.

Teach your kids safe play rules:

  • Look First - Never run in front of or behind someone who is swinging
  • Share - Take turns on tire swings, rock walls, monkey bars, slides and swings
  •  Wait until it’s dry – Always wait until the swing set is dry before you play
  • No bullies allowed - No pushing, shoving or roughhousing allowed


Add a fall surface (ground cover) under your swingset.

While our wooden swingsets are hand-crafted to eliminate unnecessary cuts and scrapes, we suggest adding a fall surface under your play structure to add another layer of protection for your children – just in case they lose their balance and fall. We recommend adding rubber mats, rubber mulch, wood chips sand or pea gravel under your swing set with tire swing.

What to consider when buying a swingset?

Before buying a swingset, always check with your homeowner’s association before assembly. Some HOA’s have height restrictions on building and play structures. Also, determine how much space you have in your yard. Will there be enough space for your children to run around with their friends safely?

How much space do I really need in my yard?

The amount of space needed for a safe play experience may vary for each swingset, but we suggest following ASTM’s guidelines of having a 6’ safety area around your swing set. This area should not include any obstructions such as trees, plants, sheds or any other structures. In addition to the safety benefits of a 6’ clearance, it gives children space to run around all day long.

What kind of construction knowledge do I need to have to assemble your swingsets?

We welcome anyone to build our swingset kits, even those with little do-it-yourself experience. Each kit is pre-cut, ready for assembly and can be built with basic tools. Don’t worry, if you have questions during assembly, our dedicated customer service team can answer your questions via phone or online chat.

Maintenance Tips:

Periodic maintenance is suggested to ensure safe enjoyment of your swing set and optional accessories. Checking, splitting and surfacing cracking are characteristics of all wooden swingsets. This is caused by varying seasonal temperatures and moisture conditions. To minimize this checking and/or cracking, you may coat your play set with a water repellent.

What kind of stain do I need for this swingset?

Use a water based stain. Apply a clear water sealant to help protect color and wooden components. If you need a stain to match, take a stained board from the wood swingset kit to a paint store and have them match the stain.
