We stand out from other marine construction companies because we create unique, custom-made designs. In contrast, many others apply a one-size-fits-all pattern that often results in disappointment. 

Why Should You Get a Boat Dock?

Aesthetically speaking, these additions will provide a new way of viewing the ocean from your backyard. While we all understand your enjoyment of the view is an essential aspect of why you may consider adding a boat dock to your home. Keep in mind that it will also act as an important safety and add protection to any property.

Maintaining Your Boat Dock

 Maintaining your boat dock will take time. People underestimate the care necessary to keep a clean and safe boat dock. Here are some tips on how to keep yours in prime condition:

  1. Clean often and thoroughly. The best way to do this is a pressure washer, and if your dock is wood, it will soften possibly exposing you to splinters. This is when it’s necessary to sand your dock. If you have steel pieces and parts, make sure to sand, prime, and paint, to avoid rusting. 
  2. Set a schedule. We all know how busy life can get, and sometimes we simply just forget. So, by choosing days to inspect and clean your boat dock, you will better maintain its integrity. This includes looking for rotting or falling pieces and searching for loose screws or boards sticking up. 
  3. Don’t half-fix anything or use parts you don’t know for sure are waterproof. Boat docks are sensitive, so it’s highly recommended you leave any repairs to the professionals. Get the job done right and efficiently, so you don’t have to spend even more money in the future. 

Overall, safety is our main concern, so that’s why you should properly maintain your boat dock. Its also recommended keeping a life ring nearby.
