Aluminum Boat Docks
The Right Material for the Job
Wood tends to rot, warp, splinter, crack and suffer harm from insects. It is a relatively soft material that can easily be damaged by boat impacts and extreme weather conditions. Wood docks require frequent repair and must be treated with wood preservatives to prevent deterioration. Steel docks offer a stronger alternative to wood but rusts and corrodes causing a need for regular maintenance.
The aluminum framed dock can be decked with the same materials as traditional docks. To match the longevity of the aluminum frame, Mid-Cal Construction recommends Brock Vinyl Decking. The 100% virgin vinyl is Highly durable, maintenance free and won’t fade or discolor. We also have additional options including Ipe Brazilian hardwood, composite decking, GlobalGrid, or Tuff Tread.
