Aluminum Floating Dock FAQs

Once I place an order for a dock, how long will it take to be delivered?

All of our docks are built to order and our lead time varies depending on when you place your order - if you order in the off-season, it could be as short as 3-4 weeks. If you order between March and July, it'll be longer. The best thing to do is call for an ETA. COVID-19 UPDATE: Our lead times have been impacted by COVID-19. Please call to get an estimated ship date before placing your order. 

Can I have an Aluminum Framed Floating dock shipped to my house?

Yes, residential delivery is available at an additional charge. The docks ship on large, heavy pallets, so a tractor or forklift is needed to unload them.

What walkway lengths are available on the Aluminum Docks?

We offer two walkway lengths for the aluminum docks. A (10') walkway works well if you have a constant water level on your pond, or a (20') walkway if you have a water fluctuation level of 4' or less. We don't offer a longer walkway than (20') on the Aluminum Docks.

How are the Aluminum Framed Floating Docks anchored?

The sectional aluminum docks are designed to be self-installed using a 10' steel base anchored with 4 steel stakes. In extreme circumstances, you can relocate the base.

What is the decking made of?

For our floating docks, we use a composite decking material called TimberTech. We’ve chosen TimberTech because it is one of the densest decking products on the market, as you can see from the chart below.

Can I get an awning on an aluminum framed floating dock?

Awnings are not available on any of the aluminum docks. The powder coated dock table with umbrella is a popular add-on to provide some shade. If you really want an awning, check out our floating steel framed docks.

Can I get railings on my Aluminum Framed Floating Dock?

Yes. For an additional fee you can add a 32" high aluminum, powder coated rail anywhere you want on any of the aluminum docks and walkways.
