Dock Building Terms to Know

For many of us, the thought of owning our own lakefront home with a boat floating gently on the water is just a dream. And it's unlikely that any of us have factored in the expense of building a dock for our motor boats, jet skis and pontoon boats. Marine construction is a tricky business and it may not be the best option for amateurs. If you're one of the lucky folks who happen to own lake front property, you could probably use a brush up course in dock and deck building terminology for the next time you work with contractors on a pier or dock.

  • Decks - This term refers to the planks used to form the walking area on a dock or pier.
  • Dock - Docks and piers are two different structures. A dock doesn't necessarily extend out into the water and is often nestled right up against the lake house.
  • Lifts - No matter where your boat is docked, having a lift nearby can be a huge help when you've got a boat floating in the water and you want it on a trailer in a hurry.
  • Pier - Piers extend from shallow water to deep water. Piers are slightly more complicated to build than docks because of their location.
  • Treated Lumber - It sounds obvious, but wood that's going to be sitting in water for years and years needs to be sealed with waterproof coating. Buying the best treated lumber you can find is an investment well worth making, because building a new dock in five years is not something you want to do. Pontoon - A device that floats to support docks on the water.

    Docks are structures that jut out over water. They're seen at lakes, oceans, ponds, rivers, and anywhere else where there's a natural body of water. Docks serve many purposes, mostly for boating, fishing, and other recreational pursuits. Kids love to jump off them into the water, and adults like to fish off docks or piers waiting for a bite. Dock builders, contractors, and construction professionals can build docks and other similar structures, such as a jetty or wharf. Docks are usually made of wooden boards and require pilings in order to remain standing, giving the illusion that they are floating on the water. Many times, you'll see networks of docks at a marina where several sailboats and speed boats are moored when not in use. Dock builders are often called in on private, commercial, residential, and municipal projects, where they must come up with a design plan that satisfies the requirements of the job. Docks may differ in size, but the equipment and tools used to construct them remain the same. Most docks feature ladders, bumpers, piling, cleats, and floats, among other materials like planks of lumber. Whether on the sea, at a marina, or a lake, docks serve an important purpose for boaters and other water enthusiasts. Construction contractors skilled in this area can build these structures for marine use. They often get their supplies and equipment from retail and wholesale supplies stores. Consumers and businesses looking to have a dock built can seek out qualified dock builders on the internet, by searching for quotes by local professionals who specialize in the type of dock they want. Those who want to take on a small dock construction project can get sample blueprints online as well.
