We offer two innovative dock styles to suit different lifestyles and budgets. While each dock we build can be customized to meet the specific tastes and requirements of individual clients, the two I’ll detail here are the ones we build most. There are also very specific guidelines for docks in certain neighborhoods, which I’ll also include. Both series of docks include custom components such as aluminum extrusions, bumpers, castings, fasteners, decking, and trim to make them as strong as possible and to create a dock that has a finished appearance unlike any other.
The features included on all of our docks are:
- all aluminum structures
- IPE (a Brazilian hardwood also known as “ironwood”) or Zuri decking
- black corner and horizontal bumpers
- folding exterior and fixed interior cleats
- aluminum 5 Step ladder
- cable & winch anchoring system
Our Classic Series offers a combination of low maintenance, structural design elements with long term durability. In addition to the elements listed above, this series also includes: 1′ slip angles, three inch aluminum roof posts, an aluminum ramp, and your choice of roof design.
The Signature Series is a combination of sturdy elegance and enhanced appearance. It incorporates all of the Classic elements along with these upgrades:
- lower bumper boards
- IPE roof fascia
- 3′ slip angles, for added ease of access to your boat
- painted four inch roof posts, color of your choice
- our exclusive flared ramp design, painted
- treated and stained wood cupola and weathervane
We’ve worked closely with particular neighborhoods to develop docks that meet their specific design requirements. Two of these include The Reserve at Lake Keowee and The Cliffs at Keowee Falls South. The Reserve Signature docks have all of the features of our Signature line except the roof posts are what we call “boxed”, meaning they’re wrapped in IPE, instead of painted. The other distinctions of this line are ramps painted your choice of Fern Green or Burnished Slate, and cedar shake or copper roofs and cupolas.
The Cliffs Signature docks also have all the features of our Signature line, but differ slightly in that they require Fern Green metal roofs and cupolas, IPE caps on the ramps, and three inch IPE boxed roof posts.
If you’re in the market for a dock, hopefully all of this is helpful in giving you an idea of what will work best for your needs. You can best see the differences in our photo gallery. No matter which design you choose, you can be sure you’re getting the highest quality construction as they are expertly designed for living on Lakes Keowee, Hartwell, Bowen, and Jocassee.
