Once I place an order for a floating dock kit, how long will it take to be delivered?
Our dock kits are typically in stock and you can expect delivery in 2 to 3 weeks.
Can I have a floating dock kit 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.
How long is the walkway that is included with the floating dock kit?
The 8 ft. x 8 ft. dock comes standard with an 8 ft. walkway, and that is the longest walkway we’d recommend for that dock. You can choose an 8 or 12 ft. walkway for the 8 ft. x 12 ft. dock.
How should I anchor my floating dock once I’ve assembled it?
You will dig two piers that are at least 6 in. x 18 in. and set the provided anchor in concrete. For more details, download our complete assembly and installation instructions.
If I choose to order without decking, what type of decking do you recommend?
For the decking, we recommend you use composite decking, cedar, or redwood, but ultimately, this is your decision. While cost will likely be a major consideration – be sure you factor in your time to replace whichever type of decking you choose. If you opt for a less durable material, you’ll have to replace it more frequently. We’d opt for decking that make the installation worth your time.
If I choose to order with decking, what type of decking will it come with?
We use the same decking for the floating dock kits as we do for our Steel and Aluminum Floating Docks - 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.
If I order my dock kit with decking, do I have color options?
If you get decking, the standard is Dark Teak colored TimberTech decking. Maritime Grey is available at no additional charge. Other color options may be available for an additional charge. Lead time may vary for colors other than the Dark Teak. Please call for more options.
Dark Teak (Standard)
Can I get an awning for the floating dock kit?
No. Awnings are not available on any of the aluminum docks.
Can I get railings on my floating dock kit?
Yes. For an additional fee you can add a 32" high aluminum, powder coated railing that you would have to install yourself. Please call for additional information.
