Decking Materials

Dock Masters offers many options for the type of boat dock decking and decking materials to consider for new construction, remodeling, or dock repair with Gossen® PVC Decking being the preferred material:

Pressure Treated Wood:

Pressure treatedWhile the most economical method for building or repairing a dock, it does require annual maintenance to maintain its look.  Pressure treated deck boards remain vulnerable to the sun and UV light and over time will splinter, crack, warp or even rot depending on how much maintenance is provided. Power-washing and staining should be done regularly since the wood is also subject to moisture which may cause mold, algae and mildew if not properly maintained.

 

Composite Wood:

Composite wood is an alternative to real wood. It provides the look of natural wood without the maintenance required for staining.  Composite products are developed to convey most of the benefits of their wood counterparts (ie. pressure-treated lumber) by combining plastic and wood fibers.
