SUPERIOR Dock is built right here in Michigan to our stringent specifications! Every joint is welded (aluminum dock-roughly 190 welds on each 4' dock) and sports square-stock aluminum underdeck framework for unsurpassed rigidity. Additionally, we do double the underside framework of most companies that you'll find on the market, two full length and four width-wise supports on a 4' dock, 1 full length and three spanning the width on a 3' wide dock. Every single aluminum tread is welded for rigidity (some companies also only fully secure every 3rd tread).
Not to be confused with the dock sold at local hardware stores or on Craigslist which only has one full-length and two or three width-wise underdock supports on 4' wide dock and results in a dock that looks the same on top, but much bouncier! We focus on quality products and making sure you get the ideal system tailored to your exact situation (whether it is from us or not!) versus pushing the highest margin for us! Stainless steel hardware included. See our Supports and Accessories Tab for pricing on dock components!
All of our offerings are designed to be on the high end of quality and features (versus cheapest and/or highest margin), practicality and ultimate ease of use- no gimmicky products, no BS- just proven products and honest advice based on real-world experience! If we don't offer the ideal solution for your unique situation, we'll tell you the honest truth and we'll at least try to point you to someone else who does offer what you need, rather than selling you something you'll be unhappy with!
For an accurate dock quote, we'll need you to provide:
-Type of dock desired? Choose from the options, below! Poles visible above dock or hidden (underdock UDS style) poles?
-Location if you want it delivered or installed?
-Beach/ grass or sea wall/ rock wall start? What type of sea wall and how high from the lake bed? Pictures help us!
(See video , below, for tips on how to measure for height with a sea wall since the wall sets your dock height rather than the water)
-Water depth every 10' from your desired starting point until desired depth? If you have an existing dock that you are simply replacing, that is the perfect template for pole lengths especially while it is on shore for the winter!
(Your dock needs to be at least 12-18" above the water on an average inland lake, 24-28" plus above the water on very rough lakes or for lakes which are prone to seasonal flooding. Just make sure that the existing poles are long enough to keep your dock a proper height out of the water- if your existing dock gets submerged during flood periods, let us now so we can add length to all of your new poles! If it has augers on the current poles, let us know as that will affect the length.)
-Muck depth every 10' from starting point (i.e. pure sand or do you sink to your ankles, shins, knees, waist deep?)
(Shin deep muck or deeper will change the hardware that is required! This measurement does not have to be exact)
-Do you plan to moor a boat directly to the dock or use a boat lift?
(A boat lift is safest for your boat and your dock, extra precautions should be taken if mooring directly to the dock!)
Desired layout? If you want a platform, take a look at our pictures and draw us a very basic block-sketch! If you're just going straight out, that can still help by showing where you want boat lifts, pontoon tie-up, etc!
(If you can add the corresponding water/ muck depths and/or your desired pole heights at each location, that really helps!)
In order to get you an accurate quote you a dock, we need to know some basic information to get started- every single dock is unique, so if you simply tell us you "need a quote for a dock", that is as vague to us as telling a builder you need a quote for a house- do you want a 300 sq. ft. tiny home or a 15,000 sq. ft. mansion? So, a little bit of information goes a long way for both of us to ensure you get the best system possible and the most accurate quote!
Please watch our YouTube video, below, and read the video's description for a tutorial on methods to measure for your new dock system!
ANODIZED ALUMINUM DOCK SECTIONS
NEVER BURN YOUR FEET AGAIN! The anodized coating process creates a smooth and stain free surface with less sun-glare. Contrary to popular belief, it stays cool to the touch even on the hottest summer days! Specifically, 38 degrees cooler than wooden dock- we laser tested it in the factory parking lot on a sunny & 92-degree day- anodized aluminum stayed 94 degrees without water under it (water will keep it even cooler) vs. 132 degrees for treated-wood decking!
Not to mention, it is much lighter than wood sections (84 lbs. each vs. 160-240 lbs. each for wood sections) for easier installation and removal! Dirt and bird droppings wash off easily when it rains, or with a soft-bristled broom and the anodizing keeps the dock looking new for many years to come! No more replacing rotten sections either, they'll last a lifetime and then some, easily paying for itself versus having to periodically wash, stain and/or replace wooden dock sections!
Save your back, your friendships of those that help you install, and the hassle of powerwashing and staining your wood dock! 4'x10' anodized is by far our best selling dock and is always in stock, ready to go transform your lakefront to your dream setup! This is the dock of the future-wooden docks will soon be a thing of the past!
3' x 10' Anodized All-Aluminum Dock Section- $395 plus 6% tax
4' X 10' Anodized All-Aluminum Dock Section- $499 plus 6% tax
4' x 12' Anodized Dock Section (For Horseshoe Around Boat Lift)- $725 plus 6% tax
4' x 9'6" Anodized All-Aluminum Section (For Parallel Platform)- $510 plus 6% tax
SUNWALK COMPOSITE DECK w/ ALUMINUM-FRAME DOCK SECTIONS
SunWalk decking is ideal for where big waves surge over docks, saving the dock from being ripped around in the surf, the waves are meant to surge through it rather than slamming it around. Slip-resistant, quieter to walk on than aluminum (especially with kids and dogs) and maintenance free. 12 Year limited warranty on the SunWalk panels.
Oversized 5" aluminum side stringers and welded supports underneath have been added to stiffen the composite and reduce the bounce that you feel on some competitor's 4" stringer docks (most companies just slap composite panels in their standard frames, but lose the inherent strength and rigidity of the welded aluminum treads)!
Each 4'x10' section weighs much less than your wooden dock, but a bit heavier than all-aluminum!
Please Note: These require our adjustable-width UDS Supports or other dock support (shown below) which accepts 48.25" width dock. These will NOT fit in our popular standard MaxLoc Supports- Please see the Dock Supports and Accessories Page for more info on each style!
4'x10' Gray or Tan SunWalk with Aluminum Frame Dock Section- $662 plus 6% tax
MILL-FINISH ALUMINUM DOCK SECTIONS
Mill-finish is raw aluminum without any surface coating and is therefore how it looks right from the mill. To be brutally honest, unless you are adding sections to an existing mill-finish dock and you want it to match what you already have, do yourself a favor and just upgrade to anodized aluminum, you certainly won't regret it! We offer these almost exclusively for add-on sections and do not recommend for a total system.
When new, mill finish starts shiny, but over the years it will dull down some with a blackish-gray tarnish and will get hot (if you've ever burned your feet on an aluminum dock, it was mill-finish, anodized stays completely cool to the touch), but will last a lifetime and then some! Mill-Finish Aluminum is our most affordable offering to upgrade to a lightweight and extremely durable aluminum dock.
3'x10' Mill-Finish All Aluminum Dock Section- $387 plus 6% tax
4'x10' Mill-Finish All Aluminum Dock Section- $475 plus 6% tax
TREATED WOOD w/ ALUMINUM STRINGER DOCK SECTIONS
The most affordable option to get you on the water ASAP as well as great for those who desire a rustic look to match their cottage or cabin. Minimal knot 5/4" thick edge- radiused, Southern treated-pine you can stain to any color, or let it be natural, with an aluminum F-channel stringer for increased strength and lighter weight than full timber-framed dock sections.
Keep in mind that you get what you pay for- this has the shortest lifespan and most maintenance of all of our offerings and will get the hottest in the sun- about 40 degrees warmer than our anodized aluminum dock! Also, you will be dealing with nearly twice the weight of the fully-aluminum constructed dock counterparts which we offer!
3'x10' Treated-Pine Deck w/ Aluminum Stringer Dock Section $262 plus 6% tax
4'x10' Treated-Pine Deck w/ Aluminum Stringer Dock Section $306 plus 6% tax
