Floating Docks/Seasonal Docks
What are floating docks? This type of seasonal dock consists of a large platform with decking placed over airtight drums, which float on top of the surface of the water. You may find floating docks as pre-built sections, which can be attached in multiple configurations or shapes. Floating docks are also known known as floating piers or floating jetties.
When it comes to a floating dock configuration, there are plenty of benefits to consider:
Floating docks are incredibly practical, adaptable, and customizable. Their adaptability helps them rise and fall along with the water level.
Floating docks do not damage sediment, and as a result, they have less permitting requirements.
Furthermore, their adaptability to adjust to the current water level means that any critical electrical systems attached to the dock will not be submerged beneath the water.
If severe weather comes in, your floating dock can be easily and safely stored away and easily put in place again. Also, if you live on a lake or river where there is little wind or water current, you can even keep your floating dock over the winter months.

Additionally, plastic docks do not require many repairs or replacements, when compared with wood docks. On the whole, a plastic floating dock will last you many years into the future. It will be durable enough to withstand wind and severe weather alike.
Durability: Plastic docks are manufactured with polyethylene, which won’t rot or splinter, as is the case with wood docks. If a section is damaged, (by a watercraft or by inclement weather), it can be easily replaced. In addition, a plastic dock often comes with a warranty which protects against certain damages. Contact our dock builders for more information.
Upkeep: Wooden docks require regular maintenance and aluminum docks, while needing less upkeep, still require inspection for any rust or mold. Meanwhile, a plastic floating dock can easily be cleaned with soap and water when necessary. Plastic docks are much easier to maintain.
