A boat dock is important for properties in waterfront and coastal areas. Having one allows for the enjoyment of recreational and relaxing activities such as boating and fishing. As such, a sturdy dock is considered an essential investment.
Dock Breaks: Environmental Factors
Although docks should last a long time, some environmental factors still corrode the structures. Factors such as wind and wave exposure, shoreline stability, and water level affect the structure of your dock. Midcoast Marine Group takes all these things into consideration during construction.
Dock Repair and Upgrades
During repair of the dock, we always take note of potential upgrades in the design. Some upgrades include ladders, gangways, slip covers, and canopies. We also offer upgrades on boat cleats, bumpers, dock seals, and lighting (landscape/underwater).
Aside from these upgrades, we can also provide services on minor concerns such as loose bolts and screws, dock moves, flotations, and disposals.
Common Dock Problems
More often than not, repairs occur due to bad decisions made during the construction of the actual dock. Some of these decisions include:
- Faulty wiring – having a faulty wiring can cause accidents to your guests and family members. It is important to always inspect electrical systems and make sure that your boat dock complies with your area’s regulations.
- Unsealed wood – you need to have your treated lumber resealed regularly to make it stronger.
- Dock on water – as much as possible, docks should be built on land. Not only will it prevent electrical accidents, construction will be faster and more efficient.
