And no residential or commercial dock building or decking project is too big for our talented and knowledgeable team.
Types of Docks
Our professional dock builders at Gibson Marine Construction will work with you to help you decide which type of dock and decking materials will be best for your lifestyle and property. The two most common types of docks we build are fixed docks and floating docks.
Fixed docks are permanent installations with pilings driven into the seabed. They are very sturdy and are built with quality materials crafted from steel, composite, pressure-treated lumber, and extruded PVC. Fixed docks are built to withstand inclement weather conditions, such as a hurricane. And this also makes them a better choice for areas with strong tides or currents and/or a lot of wave action, like high traffic areas.
Because fixed docks are more sturdy and can support more weight, we can create a custom design just for you and can add-on various accessories such as boat lifts, comfortable seating areas, a bar, grill or outdoor kitchen area, railings, lighting, and more.
Floating docks are generally considered temporary installations, not true marine construction projects so installing one typically does not require the expertise of a marine contractor, any specialty equipment, or require you to obtain the proper permits. This makes it the more budget-friendly option.
Floating docks are typically pretty basic and easy to install. Many are modular and sold in sections, which can be assembled like building blocks. Some floating docks can even be purchased and delivered fully assembled. And one of the biggest advantages to this modular feature is that the dock can be assembled and reassembled to meet your changing needs.
And since the dock floats on top of the water, it rises and falls with the water levels allowing you to embark and disembark with ease. Plus floating docks are typically easier to clean and can easily be removed to put into storage when not in use or to protect it from a storm.
Deck and Dock Maintenance and Repair Services
In addition to building docks, we also offer dock and decking maintenance services and repair services.
Dock or deck maintenance requirements will vary based on a number of factors, most importantly, the type of materials it was constructed from. But no matter the material, it is very important that you keep your dock or deck properly maintained, which will help keep it safe for use and extend the life of the structure.
The same is true for repairs. Making repairs to your dock or deck in a timely fashion can help keep it safe for use and keep it in proper working order. If you are not sure if repairs are required, you can call Gibson Marine Construction for an inspection and repair recommendations.
