Dock Repair Service | St Petersburg | Clearwater | Ellenton

Dock Repair | Priority MarineIf you live anywhere along with the vast coastal properties of Florida, chances are good that you will need quality dock repair service in St Petersburg, Clearwater, or Ellenton at some point. Living on the water is one of the biggest attractions for people moving to the sunshine state. Boating, whether for fishing or recreation, is an important and popular activity for those living near or on the waterways in the Tampa Bay area. Docks are necessary for boating. They allow for the loading and unloading of boats. In addition to boating, many people use piers to fish or swim from. They offer a way to fully utilize the benefits of living along the coast. Obviously, being exposed to the forces and elements associated with water, docks routinely need to be fixed or upgraded. Priority Marine is here to provide all of your quality dock repair service needs in the Tampa Bay area.

Most docks are built to last a long time; however, elements still take their toll on the structures. Tidal fluctuations and waves create a lot of force that puts strain on any structures in the water. Over time, these forces weaken the supports that hold up piers. Weather can accelerate the effect water has on them. Large storms create tidal surges and large waves that crash into the supports in their way. Storms can become violent enough to produce hurricanes which everyone living in Florida is familiar with. Hurricanes present a two-fold problem for any structure in the water. Not only does the water get churned up, creating more devastating waves but anything above the water is subject to the forces of high winds. Eventually, these factors and the age of the structures will weaken them and make them unsafe or unusable. Priority Marine has the experience necessary to fully understand these damaging factors. We can assess the damage and quickly provide dock repair service, extending the life of the structure.

Priority Marine has been servicing Tampa Bay, Clearwater, Ellenton, and St Petersburg areas for over 30 years. In that time, we have gained the experience and knowledge necessary to provide lasting solutions. We are familiar with all constructions and use industry-leading hardwood such as Southern Pine Lumber. Southern Pine lumber is regarded highly for being a dense durable product with minimal knots. In addition to Southern Pine, we also offer Brazilian walnut which is also very well known for durability, often lasting 25+ years and its resistance to fungi and pests. Utilizing the best hardwoods, we can provide a dock repair service that will give our customers years of extended use of their dock. So no matter what you use your dock for, Priority Marine will ensure you keep enjoying it.

Other factors that keep our solutions above water for years include the use of stainless steel screws, 5/8″ hot-dipped galvanized bolts on all structural members, sills that are double bolted, 2×10′s and joists which are 2×8′s, 16″ on center and doubled on exterior bands. These materials and techniques help fend off the forces and punishing chemistry of Florida’s coastal waterways. Stainless steel and galvanized hardware fight the corrosive effects that saltwater has on materials. Using large sills, joists, and doubling exterior bands ensures that even the roughest seas are no match for our dock repair service.
