WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING YOUR PILING
Pilings provide the foundation for your dock and provide the structure on which everything will rest. When choosing your piling, make sure to consider the following:
Suitability for your project: What will your foundation support? Are you planning a large dock with an attached boat lift? A sightseeing dock for peaceful evenings on the lake? Will your dock need to support a lot of foot traffic? Whichever piling you choose will need to be strong enough to support whatever activities are planned for the dock.
Your goals: Do you want to ensure your dock is environmentally-friendly? Are you concerned with the color of your pilings or want a specific look? If so, composite pilings are ideal for your dock.
By aligning your project’s needs and your personal preferences, you are better equipped to choose the right piling for your dock. And if you need assistance, Decks & Docks is standing by.
HOW FORTRESS PILINGS ARE MADE
Fortress Pilings are made using a barrier liner which is then wrapped at precise angles with continuous fiberglass strands which are coated with vinyl ester resin and finished with a premium marine-grade coating. Because Fortress Pilings are hollow they may be filled with concrete or other materials for added strength if needed. Each component helps make the piles durable, strong, and attractive.
