What’s the point of living on the water if you can’t fully enjoy it? Docks allow you to admire the view while giving you easy access to your boat, a place to fish, and a swimming area.

Popular Boat Dock Types:

  • Piling Dock – The most common dock. It’s built from sturdy wooden beams driven deep into the lake and the frame then being attached. These docks have the advantage of being stable and strong, making them popular for high-flow areas.
  • Double-Decker Boat Dock – Many boat owners choose this type of dock because it is as sturdy as the Piling Dock but the extra deck offers double the fun. This is perfect for extra company and extra activities such as having room for a grill, diving board, slide, and furniture while also offering sun protection to the boat and privacy for sunbathing.
  • Bulkhead – The most common form of shoreline stabilization is a bulkhead.  Coastal property owners typically seek to develop bulkheads in an attempt to slow large landslide erosion caused by wave action.  Construction materials commonly used include wood pilings, large boulders stacked to form a wall, or a seawall built with concrete or another hard substance.
