What Type of Boat Dock Do I Need?

Choosing the right type of boat dock for your property involves more than just selecting a style that is visually pleasing. There are a variety of things to consider when determining your docks needs.


Asking yourself the following questions will be helpful.

  • How many boats will the dock be accommodating?
  • Will the dock be accommodating any other watercrafts such as kayaks or jet skis?
  • What is the depth of the water?
  • What are the conditions of the water in your area? Is there heavy boat traffic or frequent storms?
  • What is your budget for building the dock?
  • Do you have time to maintain the dock yourself?

Types of Boat Docks in Lido Key

After determining your answers to the above questions, determining the type of dock and type of material would be the next step.  Two types of boat docks that are offered by Wood Dock & Seawall are:

  • Traditional Permanent or Fixed Boat Docks: Permanent or fixed boat docks are long lasting and very durable. They are made with high quality materials and sturdy construction.
  • Floating Boat Docks: Floating boat docks are made of low maintenance materials which make them easy to maintain.

Marine Boat Dock Decking Material

Wood Dock & Seawall offers only the finest selection of decking material to design your boat dock. The types of decking material we offer are:

Marine Grade Pressure-Treated Wood Pilling and a Pressure-Treated Wood Decking

Pressure treated wood decking is an extremely popular choice for boat docks and marinas. It offers a traditional wood grain appearance which compliments a nautical setting. In addition to the aesthetic appeal, pressure treated wood dock planking is also one of the most cost-effective decking material for boat docks, which helps to make it a great option for small residential projects as well as larger marinas that are on a budget.

Composite Decking Material  

If you are looking for a more maintenance-free dock, then composite decking is the choice for homeowners and marinas. Composite decking is available in a variety of colors which are often fade-resistant, and don’t require any staining or sealing throughout its lifetime. In addition to being low maintenance, most composite dock decking options are backed by a manufacturer’s warranty for both residential and commercial properties.
