Hear From Our Customers
“Ordered an SK30 vinyl play set for the Grandkids! Capitol Sheds helped understand the ordering process and set expectations for delivery. Once it arrived, the installation team was very prompt to arrive and set it up. Took only a few hours for the crew to complete the installation. Grandkids LOVED IT!”
“I was very happy with my experience with Capitol Sheds. Cliff was helpful over the phone and via email providing information and putting up with my indecisiveness! We were happy with the installation job done by Mitch and Taylor as well as the quality of our playset. When Mitch and Taylor came out to install we realized that the area that we wanted the playset on was not level enough (even though we had been told during a site visit that it was). When I reached out to the company to give feedback on that they immediately offered to come move the playset once we had the yard graded correctly. Yesterday our playset was moved and we couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Capitol Sheds. They are the perfect combination of quality product and customer service.”
“We purchased a swing set for our grandchildren and were very pleased with the process from the beginning to the end. All my questions were answered quickly and communication regarding the delivery and set up went very smoothly. The installers were very competent and friendly.”
Wood vs. Vinyl Swing Set: Which Type of Swing Set is Best?
If you’re debating whether to get a wood playset or a vinyl playset, here are a few key points to consider:
A wood playset is almost always going to be less expensive than a comparable vinyl playset. If cost is the main deciding factor for you, then wood might be your best option.
The average lifespan for our playsets is 20 – 25 years. When properly cared for, both wood and vinyl playsets can stand up to years of wear and tear, with vinyl having a slight edge in longevity.
Vinyl playsets have a vinyl-wrapped pressure-treated wooden core for a sturdy virtually maintenance free lifetime of usage. Wood playsets can splinter if not maintained on a regular basis, so you need to keep after that for safety. Vinyl won’t crack or splinter as wood can, which is a nice benefit.
- Style & Layout
With both wood and vinyl sets, you’ll find similar configurations and accessory options. Some customers simply prefer the look of wood or vinyl and choose based on that. We do have the option of a wood look finish on the vinyl playsets.
White or Almond vinyl stands out more in the yard, while woodgrain vinyl or wood tends to blend in slightly better with its natural surroundings.
Adapting Playsets as Kids Grow
The best thing about our playsets is that you can adapt them as your kids age. For example, you might start off with a baby swing seat and then change to a standard belt seat or tire swing as the child gets older. You can also swap out a standard ladder for a rock wall or cargo net to suit older children.
Playset Delivery & Installation
Don’t spend countless hours trying to piece a playset together. Let our skilled install team set your playset up in 2-3 hours.
Financing Options for Playsets
We offer a variety of financing and Rent-To-Own programs to make it easier to afford your playset. Our simple financing program with easy online application means you can order & receive your playset faster.
Frequently Asked Questions About Backyard Playsets
- Do we come and check the property to see if the site can accommodate a structure?
You can request that we come and check your site if you have a question about how a structure could be installed on your property. During this site evaluation meeting we can also answer any questions you have and talk about your custom options.
If your site is within a reasonable distance from one of our offices there will be no charge, however, for sites that are further from our office there may be a fee that will be credited towards the cost of your purchase.
- Is site prep included?
Site preparation is not included in the standard playset price. The area where you want the playset placed must be cleared and be level (within 6″).
