To help you get started with the dock building process, here is some more information about 7 things to consider before building a dock.

Oshkosh Custom Docks​

Our Oshkosh dock builders can design a custom dock for your residential or commercial property. Custom configuration means that you get a dock that meets your unique needs as a boating or fishing enthusiast.

Benefits of a Custom Dock:

Investing in a durable, adaptable, and aesthetically appealing dock can add many benefits to your property. For example, you can benefit from:

  • Quicker, and much easier access to the water

  • Better protection for your boats, jet skis, and other watercraft

  • Increased property value 

  • A great spot that can double as a place to fish or relax

Types of Docks We Build

Seasonal Dock Installations

If you are interested in a temporary dock installation for your residence, you'll want to give us a call to discuss what type of seasonal dock will work best. We work with piling docks, floating docks, and pipe docks. Let's discuss their benefits:

  • Piling dock: If you need a dock for larger watercraft or you need a dock that's durable, you'll want to consider a piling dock. This type of dock is constructed to have a large wooden beam driven deep into the ground, making it a durable option. Ideal for withstanding strong currents.

  • Floating dock: Our Oshkosh dock builders construct floating docks for our clients who need a dock that is highly adaptable. Floating docks consist of a large platform that sits over airtight drums, which float on the water. In the case of severe weather, the benefit of floating docks is that you can remove them easily. Because of their adaptability, it's relatively easy to reconstruct them again. More information here about why choose floating docks for your waterfront property.

  • Pipe dock: Pipe docks are great if you have shallow water. This dock type consists of an aluminum frame with removeable docking. Another great, adaptable choice.


Permanent Dock Installations

At Radtke, our dock builders can also install a permanent dock. If you need a more stable dock for your watercraft, you may want to consider a year-round, permanent dock.

  • Crib dock: As their name implies, crib docks are designed from cribs, or wooden frames/crates. We install these along the bottom. Crib docks are exceptionally durable, however, keep in mind that they are considerably more expensive than other dock types.

  • Suspension dock: These docks, similar to a drawbridge, hang over the water with cables. This means that they will have little impact on the surrounding environment. Overall, suspension docks are better choice for the environmentally-conscious.
