Florida’s Floating Boat Dock, Bulkhead, and Seawall Construction Specialists

If you want to protect your waterfront investment from storms and other harsh weather conditions, there’s the need to put up safeties like seawalls and bulkheads – that’s what we do!

A seawall is a structure that prevents the water from reaching land. It is usually built along coasts with large waves and strong currents. Putting up a seawall will help protect your boat dock and other structures from damage caused by marine borers, waves, tides, and other violent weather patterns. Our construction specialists can build you a seawall – concrete, vinyl, steel, fiber-reinforced polymer, or wood – that will provide practical and long-lasting shoreline protection.

On the other hand, a waterfront bulkhead is an upright stabilization structure commonly seen in commercial and residential shoreline properties in Bradenton, FL – it could either be on land or submerged under water. They help to retain soil conditions and provide protection from water waves. If what you need are bulkheads, we’ve got you covered from start to finish.

We also do floating docks! They are made from high-quality materials that will stand up to anything mother nature throws at them—whether it’s a storm or just some rough waves!

When it comes to building bulkhead, seawall, or any marine construction, we will first conduct an inspection to enable us to understand your property and your needs so that we can draw out a plan that suits your project.

Then we will proceed to material selection, obtain the necessary permits and mobilize our crew to begin construction. When we’re done, you can rest assured that your installation will stand out and stand the test of time.

Need a contractor to build a dock in your backyard or a commercial dock for boaters? We’ve got ya!

Our Bradenton dock and lift builders can design and construct custom platforms that will ensure that you get the best off your boat lifts. Typically, boat lifts offer more advantages than the traditional docks that only let you moor your boats while they remain in the water. With lifts, you get a better and safer storage facility. Your boats are elevated from the water surface and guaranteed better condition and extended service life – no storm damage.

Your choice of lift will depend on the dimension and weight of your boat and, of course, the space available to install the lift. A bottom-standing lift is ideal if you’re operating at a shallow depth, say 3-10 feet. For shorelines with fluctuating water levels, a floating boat lift is an affordable option. Suspended lifts are most suitable for large vessels and can be added to a new dock or integrated into an existing structure. With our wide variety of styles and materials, you will be able to create something that perfectly matches your needs.

Dock Design and Installation

Dock Design and Installation

Design is the first step to building anything at all – docks inclusive. A good dock will have a solid foundation that supports your boat. It should also be easy to access so you can quickly get in and out of the water.
Before embarking on a construction project, one of the first few things we want to establish is the type of dock that suits your shoreline property. Choosing the right lakeside dock goes beyond just the aesthetics; we always want to ensure that the right questions are asked and answered at the design stage. We are interested in the depth of the water, the number of boats that will be accommodated, the type of marine vessels that’ll use the dock (kayaks, barges, tug boats, fishing boats, yachts), the condition of the water body (frequent storms or plenty boat traffic), your budget, and maintenance plans.

Obtaining answers to all these questions will help our experts understand the best way to design your dock – stationary or floating style – and install the best anchor, bulkhead, and seawall. In addition, selecting the suitable material for the decking (composite material, pressure-treated wood…), railing, gangway, and floatation support, becomes easier. The best docks are made with high-quality materials like wood (hard or soft) and metal. Still, concrete can also work well if you are willing to sacrifice some durability for lower costs and faster installation times. Whatever the case, trust us to put our best foot forward every step of the way.
Let’s help you get the best of your investment!
