Q: What is the best or safest material to use?

Q: What is the Treated Pine treated with?
A: Copper boron azole, or CBA, has been used in parts of Europe as a substitute to CCA since the early 1990’s, and can be found today in 19 countries. Copper is the principal ingredient, protecting wood against termites and fungal decay. Organic azole, a secondary ingredient that is used in fungicides and applied to fruits, peanuts, and other crops, adds an extra layer of defense, shielding timbers from copper-tolerant pests. A third ingredient, boric acid, offers supplement protection. CBA has many advantages over CCA. For one, none of the preservative’s chemicals are considered hazardous by the EPA. CBA-treated wood is clean to the touch, non-corrosive to metal hardware and provides long-term resistance to termites and fungus. It can be used in countless outdoor applications, such as decks, picnic tables and swing sets.

Q: Is the Cedar treated?
A: No, naturally Cedar is a hardwood and is very insect resistant & water resistant and does not need to be treated.

Q: What type of maintenance is needed to preserve my swing set?
A: Wood swing sets need to maintained annually. Applying a water sealant will protect the wood from water & sun damage. The hardware needs to be tightened at least once a year as well as re-staking the base into the ground. We offer services for this.

Q: Does the PVC require any maintenance?
A: No.
