Boat and Fishing Dock Builders
Not really going to pretend that aluminum dock are very appealing, but they are extremely durable. Depending on circumstances an aluminum dock could last you anywhere from 30 – 50 years. They also don’t degrade because of pest that might want to make a new home for themselves. The initial cost associated with aluminum docks are usually much higher then other docks. Most times costing more then twice as much as other options. Good that aluminum docks don’t take on damage very easy. It takes a really rough storm to get bent up. These docks are usually pre-built by the manufacturer and interlock together so the custom ability can be very varied.
Plastic floating docks are one of the most durable options available. They also allow for a couple cool add on options for boats or other applications. If your looking for the long term durability of aluminum docks but would rather not have to foot the bill that come with it, it might be good to look into a plastic docking system. Since these dock systems some in sections, if you were to damage one of those sections it can be an easy fix. Plastic doesn’t warp or degrade as wooden docks do. A good outcome to having a plastic dock is they float on the surface and therefore move with the current. This can be good for storms or rough waters because the dock will move, as well as anything else around, with the water. This can lessen the potential for damage. But this does mean that it can be quite a bit harder to walk on and is near impossible to build upon. Upkeep is kept to hardware as the plastic itself will rarely need to be serviced.
