Custom Docks are used for the handling of boats and other water vehicles. Docks are usually close to man-made structures like land platforms that are usually higher than the water level. Sometimes, docks, also called dockyards are also used for unloading and reloading goods from and unto the ship; in the same vein, they can be used for water vehicle repairs.
Sarasota Seawall Services are also specialized in creating the best boat docks in Sarasota. We create these docks in places you might not believe docks could be created and even make these docks remarkably serve their purposes. Here are a few types of docks that might spike your interest.
Floating docks are large flat platforms, usually placed on airtight barrels or drums. These dock types come in different designs and styles so you can choose. The platform is placed on the drums and these drums are submerged underwater. The air in these barrels is what gives it its floating features. Floating dock platforms are currently the most diverse and most versatile among all dock platforms. One advantage this dock might have over all other docks is its versatility; floating docks can be put anywhere as long as there is a body of water plus, it rises and falls based on water levels.
This involves the construction and installation of wooden beams into the ground in the water so as to provide the dock platform with a rigid and stable foundation. The platform is then attached to these sets of rooted beams by a kind of attachment (probably hooks or rollers) which gives the platform the freedom to rise and fall based on the change in water levels. This dock type is known for stability in extreme weather conditions that could lead to strong currents. Compared with the floating dock, this dock requires a great deal of maintenance especially for the rooted beams underwater.
These types of docks are rather permanent compared with the other two mentioned above. Just like the piling dock, crib docks also have their wooden beams rooted in the water except the beams are quite smaller and usually covered with rocks to prolong the life span. Once the small wood beams are installed, a decking is then attached to it, giving it a rigid feel. Unlike the others, crib docks are hard to uninstall so if you don’t want something permanent, you shouldn’t look into crib docks.
This type of dock is quite different from the other docks mentioned, in fact, the process of installment is the direct opposite. Rather than creating a solid ground, suspension docks are hung in the air, over the water. Its design is quite fascinating, there is no way it won’t catch the eye of onlookers. Installation of docks like these require a great deal of considerations before it is done; you would have to consider things like the threshold of the dock, the expense, weather conditions, etc.
Regardless of the type of dock structure or materials being used, we can handle the job!
