choose concrete for longevity

How does the concrete dock float?

Our docks are built for longevity, stability and durability. We build custom floating docks with a focus on superb detail and quality. Our 10’ x 20’ concrete docks are constructed with sealed, solid, closed-cell polystyrene foam blocks, reinforced with rebar throughout and encased in wire mesh for additional support and strength. A four-inch casing of concrete is poured around the polystyrene and evenly distributed to ensure the dock will be level followed by a vibration of the perimeter to settle the concrete. Once levelled, your choice of surface finish and sealer is applied. Upgrade to add a cedar 4″ x 6″ wood trim to complete the dock’s appearance.

Do you build docks for commercial and residential?

Yes, our docks are custom designed with the end-user in mind. We will work with you to configure your end use whether you have a commercial business or a residence.

Are floating concrete docks more affordable than floating wood docks?

In our opinion, yes. Given the longevity of concrete and lower maintenance than wood, concrete docks are more affordable. Also, constructing docks out of wood normally has a long lead time due to securing wood supply and trades. At Float Docks, we have an inventory of docks you can configure to your desired layout and needs.

Are the concrete floating docks interlocking?

Yes, get creative with our 10’ x 20’ layouts and tailor them to your needs. Multiple anchors and attachments for fastening docks together allow you to create different patterns for specific needs and water conditions.
