Watercrafts are always a good way to have fun out on the water. Whether you are at your beach house or have a designated special spot for your best boat, it’s important that you’re able to keep your boat accessible with a boat dock. If your boat dock has been looking a little green around the gills, but you aren’t sure if it needs replacement or just a few repairs, we have come up with three surefire signs that you are in need of a new boat dock:
- Unstable/Eroding Foundation. The foundation is the most important part of a dock, just like it is the most important part of a home. However, unlike your home on land, a boat dock’s foundation is subjected to water, changing temperatures, waves, sea creatures, and currents. These elements can shift your foundation rather quickly and cause serious damage, and in turn, you would do well with a new boat dock.
- While a little rust here and there is inevitable when it comes to a structure suspended above and in water, the problem lies when the rust becomes extensive and expansive. Rust can eat away at crucial points in your dock, making breakage and damage not only more possible, but also enables these things to spread.
- Rot. The levels of rot in your dock can vary greatly depending on a great number of factors, like building materials used, water temperature, etc. If the rot has become so extensive that the structure is unsafe, you will need a new boat dock.
