Decks are great to add value to your home or propertie and can really add a great deal of form and function as well as giving it that “Curb Appeal”
A dock is a wood, plastic or concrete platform that gives a boater access to a waterway. It is also a good place to sit and fish (or just relax). With the addition of a ladder, docks give swimmers easy access to the water.
A boat house (or boathouse) is a building especially designed for the storage of boats, normally smaller craft for sports of leisure use. These are typically located by open water, such as on a river. Often the boats stored are small motor boats. Other boats such as pontoon boats or personal water crafts may also be stored.
A boat lift is a structure used for the dry berthing of vessels above the lake level and lowering of vessels into the lake periodically. A boat lift as herein defined is used to berth and launch a single vessel, suspended over the water’s surface. A boat lift is generally purchased as a manufactured unit with or without a canopy cover and may be placed adjacent to a dock or as stand-alone structure. These may be designed either for boats or personal watercraft. This is to be differentiated from a hoist or crane used for the launching of vessels.
A floating dock adjusts to fluctuating water conditions – the unique design of the float chambers trap air on the surface of the water for additional buoyancy. As the water levels change the dock raises and lowers.
A seawall, also known as a bulkhead or retaining wall, is a defense to reduce the effects of strong waves and to defend coastal land from erosion. The term is typically used to describe walls built on the land parallel to the coast, but may also apply to breakwaters which are built in the water.
