Piling keeps your dock supported and out of the water. Good piling is the basis of any long-lasting dock.
With the right installation and materials, piling will last you throughout years of bad weather and marine degradation.

TREATED WOOD PILING
Our classic wood piling has the maximum treatment for saltwater immersion: 2.5 CCA. We carry lengths up to 60 ft. and in diameters from 5 to 16 in. We guarantee our supply is the best in the industry: straight, consistent, and high-quality.
Straight from the rainforests of Guyana, Greenheart hardwood piling is 3x stronger than treated pine or fir. Greenheart piling doesn’t even need chemical treatment because they’re biologically resistant to marine borers, decay, and rot. They’re tough enough to last decades.
Fiberglass will never rot, rust, or crumble. Able to withstand most bad weather, fiberglass piling is the peak of marine technology and will last you generations. Have we mentioned they look good, too?
Fortify your piling with our range of protective caps, sleeves, and wraps. Keep your piling strong against sun damage, erosion, wood-boring organisms, and anything Mother Nature throws your way.

Caps protect the raw edges at the top of each piling. They shield against sun damage, roosting birds, and rain seepage to keep your piling lasting longer. We also carry caps in a variety of materials and colors to add a little extra flair to your dock.
Piling Wraps & Sleeves
We can heat-shrink sleeves onto each piling before they ever touch the water. This creates a protective barrier against water damage and marine life.
Need to give your dock a boost after it’s already suffered damage? We also carry SnapJacket casings and other vinyl wraps that fit around your existing piling. Learn more about SnapJacket.
