More Tips On Marine Construction Maintenance

In our last blog, we talked about maintaining your docks. Cleaning and repairing your marine construction may be on the bottom of your to-do list but we are here to tell you that you should move it up towards the top of your list. Not properly maintaining your dock can be dangerous. You want to make sure that you are aware of any problems before someone gets hurt. Having your marine construction inspected and repaired by our professionals is a great first step. We would like to continue with some dock maintenance tips.

Repair Wood

Anything that is exposed to the salty water for an extended period of time is bound to wear down and this includes the wood. If you notice some small holes or cracks forming in the wood then you need to have that plank and others around it replaced. Small holes can be filled with marine putty but this is only going to prolong the repairs.

Replace platforms

As stated previously, if you are seeing a lot of wear and tear on your dock, you will want to make sure that you get it replaced sooner rather than later. It is easier to install the new platform next to the new platform rather than taking the old platform out after the new one is in place. It takes a lot of work to replace the beams as they need to be placed four feet into the ground.

Replace and repair hardware

After years of being in the water, screws and other hardware are going to become damaged or lost and will need to be replaced. Even galvanized nails and screws won’t last forever. Damaged or lost screws, ropes or anything else is a recipe for disaster.

As you can see, keeping your marine construction functioning at its highest ability is the only way to ensure that everyone who will venture out on your floating dock remains safe. Don’t wait any longer to call us for your repairs.
