The installation of porch swings also affects their reliability and durabiltiy. Make sure you install them correctly so that they don't fall and damage your home as well. Use a drill rather than assuming you can screw in the hooks by hand, and pay attention to what the instructions say about hanging the chain. Improper installation of porch swings is one major reason they separate from the porch itself, and this can be dangerous but can also damage the home as well.
It's also good to remember that even the sturdiest of porch swings should not be treated the way you would treat playground swings or other porch furniture. Treat them with care and use them properly,and they'll be enjoyed for many years to come
