boat lifts

Traditional piers and docks are made of wood. They are beautiful but require a massive amount of maintenance to keep them in usable condition.

Sturdy and Beautiful Custom Piers and Lifts

Beach and lakefront property are purchased primarily by people who enjoy the water, own a boat or canoe, or love the speed of a jet ski. The views and breezes are nice, but access to that water is the selling point of these costly properties. Not all properties already have docks, piers, and boat lifts. The options for these essentials are varied.

Wood

Traditional piers and docks are made of wood. They are beautiful but require a massive amount of maintenance to keep them in usable condition. Protective coatings have to be applied frequently to protect the wood from the water. Failure to complete that step will result in warping, splitting, and cracking.

That makes the structure unstable and unsafe. Staining or painting has to be redone every two to three years to prevent splinters and peeling paint from scratching the boat. This will end up being very expensive, depending on the size of the pier or dock.

A Modern Option

A pier or dock custom made of aluminum will resemble the beauty of natural wood but eliminate the high maintenance needs. It will remain sturdy, is virtually impervious to the elements, and can be created in one of four colors. A combination of colors can also be used to create a pattern, distinguish between the pier and the dock, or make the finished product stand out from others on the lake.

This Lifetime Classic Pier is the newest offering from summerset marine, manufacturers of the All Seasons Pier as well. That one provides an ideal solution for bays and sheltered areas. Customization is perfect for multiple boats or other watercraft. It also solves the problem of uneven territory between the house and the water. A pier increases accessibility for those who have mobility issues or rely on motorized devices to get around.

In addition to making custom products, the company also services as a distributor for other leading manufacturers, such as Pier Pleasure and ShoreStation. These brands are in stock for those who require a fast response time between the initial order and placement. Repairs, parts, and accessories for these brands are also available.
