DO YOUR PILINGS NEED PROTECTION?
Depending on the material your pilings are made of, you may have different piling protection needs.
Treated Wood Pilings: Treated wood pilings are already protected from rot and marine organisms by a treatment that protects the heartwood. Decks & Docks carries treated wood pilings that are treated to 2.5 CCA, the strongest available level. However, piling protection such as pile sleeves and pile caps further protect the pilings and help them last even longer. If your pilings are already embedded, you still have options for protecting against further damage. Pile wrap and SnapJacket may help you stop further damage to your pilings. To determine which solutions may be most appropriate for your pilings, discuss your needs with a dock expert at Decks & Docks.
Greenheart Piling: This strong wood naturally resists rot and decay, however, that doesn’t mean you should skip out on piling protection. Pile sleeves are a good option for any type of timber piling. Greenheart piling is known to last for decades, though it may benefit from additional protections to help it last even longer.
Fiberglass Piling: This engineered piling is amazingly strong and resistant to most of what nature throws at it. It can handle all types of water, is resistant to rot and decay, and can withstand storm surges. Most fiberglass piling only requires a piling cap, which will help deflect rainwater and discourage bird roosting. To learn more about whether your fiberglass piling may need additional protection, contact Decks & Docks.
