Wood docks have been a classic choice for waterfront structures throughout history. These docks are constructed with marine grade pressure-treated lumber and are popular choice due to their durability and affordability. A wooden dock can last upwards of 30 years if it is treated and maintained properly.
Once the moisture content of the pressure treated lumber falls below 14%, a stain may be applied to the decking. This opens up a wide range of colors and styles that can be applied to the dock.
Matching wood strips can be added to the pilings for decorative purposes, and they can be stained to match or be left natural.
Wood docks are also relatively straightforward to install and modify, making them a versatile choice for both homeowners and contractors. They can be easily cut, shaped, and assembled, allowing for customization to suit specific needs and preferences. Additionally, the wood’s buoyancy and natural flexibility make wood docks comfortable to walk on and gentle on the knees and joints.
