Does your commercial property sit on a river, lake, or oceanfront? At Strike Doors, LLC, we want to ensure that your property functions safely and efficiently. Not only can a dock installation provide you with access to the water, it can also provide an extra sense of security for your watercraft and an increase in your overall property value.
Types of Permanent Docks
The two main types of permanent docks are crib docks and suspension docks. Crib docks are typically made of custom-built wood frames and large rocks. This option is extremely stable and able to last for decades. Suspension docks, on the other hand, are made to suspend or hang over the water. This is done with the use of cables and anchorage. Due to their unique design, suspension docks tend to give off a more modern appearance.
Determining Your Dock Needs
There are several factors you should keep in mind when determining the exact type of dock you will need. Below are a few questions you should ask yourself before making your final decision.
- What will be the water depth beneath your dock?
- How many boats or watercraft will your dock need to accommodate?
- What is the climate of your area? Is your dock susceptible to large amounts of ice during the winter?
- Does your area experience frequent storms?
The addition of a dock can be a great investment for your business. Call Strike Doors, LLC at 800-658-2839 to request a free quote. Feel free to check out our blog for more tips and view our other commercial services available in the Sacramento area.
