Michigan Aluminum Dock Company Helps You Prep for Summer

PITTSFORD, Mich. - May 5, 2023 - PRLog -- It's finally spring! Are you already dreaming about being out on the water in the summer breezes?

What's better than being out on the lake with friends and family?

Do you need a boat dock that can provide years of fun and function for your family?

Aluminum boat docks are very low maintenance. Even though they'll rarely need your attention, the sturdiest docks still require a lot of work to stand up to intense storms, heat, and high winds here in the Midwest. Protect your investment with regular inspections and maintenance!

Here's what we recommend:

1) If you leave your dock in year-round, you should perform a maintenance check in the spring before you tie up a boat or host a fishing party. Look for obvious signs of damage and corrosion before you attempt to use your dock recreationally.

2) Lake levels (especially on the Great Lakes) can fluctuate several inches year to year. Water levels change based on rain patterns or land use near your lake. You never want waves to come over the top of your dock, so check your platform height from the water and modify the leg heights as needed.

3) Ice can put a lot of twist pressure on structures, so be sure to inspect the welds and seams. If you do find a cracked weld, you can order a replacement for that section. Check to see if your dock stayed level. You might choose to have it ramped up a bit from the shore or seawall, but it should be as level as possible. You can use a carpenter's level or you can just measure from the deck to the water surface.

4) Your aluminum dock will not rust, but it can get dirty. Aluminum docks also get their fair share of algae, dead worms, and general lake gunk. It's a good idea to clean your dock at least once a year.
