Dock Installation & Removal

One of the many questions we are frequently asked is; "How much do you charge per section?" Frankly, there is no good way to answer this based on flat-rate pricing. Every dock is different in many differing ways. When we arrive on your property to estimate your dock costs, we take into consideration the following factors:

  • Beach Terrain
    Under what conditions will we be setting your dock, and where it will start at the water?
  • Ground Terrain
    What is the ground like between where you store your dock, and where it will start at the water?
  • Lake Bottom
    What is the bottom of the lake like under the water? Mucky, Sandy, Clay or Rocky?
  • Dock Construction
    What type of dock do you own? How is it assembled? How OLD is it? What size is it? There are many varying dock manufacturers each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and they all contribute to the installation and removal process.
  • Time Frame
    When do you want your dock installed or removed? Would you prefer to be present or have it ready and waiting for you?

Please Note:

For your safety and peace of mind, we will not install a dock that is determined to be unsafe by our crew. We will certainly be happy to advise you on the most cost effective and time efficient process to repair it, and restore it back to a safe, eye-appealing, and usable condition. In extreme cases, we can also provide estimates on replacement.
