Floating docks are becoming more and more popular to waterfront owners, and for good reason! Read on to find out what is so special about a floating dock.
Fluctuating Water Levels
One of the biggest benefits of floating docks is their ability to adapt to fluctuating water levels. If you live in an area where the water levels aren't always the same, a floating dock may be a great option for you. If you were to have a fixed dock when the water level is low, you may have trouble boarding, with a floating dock this problem isn't as likely. If the water level was high and you had a fixed dock, your dock could end up underwater. With a floating dock and higher than normal water levels, your dock will not end up underwater since it will go with the water levels.
According to FEMA, floating docks are able to accumulate with weather conditions best and provide better protection to boats.
Floating docks tend to be more customizable compared to fixed docks. There are more options to design and customize. They are also easier to reposition, move, and add-on to.
Easy Installation & Removal
Compared to fixed docks, floating docks are easier to install and remove. This is convenient for all parties involved!
