Frame Good? Decking
Deteriorating?

How about a whole new look at about half the cost of a new dock (prices vary on work completed).  No Maintenance Titan Decking, upgrade to poly wheels (no more flats!!!), change out to non-rusting aluminum posts and axles and more.



Old flat rubber tires?



New Poly (No Maintenance) Wheels


Bent Uprights?

How about Alumiunum or Galvanized (straight) uprights.

 

Wood Decking Gone?



Titan Deck (no maintenance) Decking


New a new bench?


Many styles of new benches to choose from

ReDeck process. How to get a accurate quote. With the ReDeck process, we typically use the Titan vinyl decking. We have found it to be a material that is cost competitive for the quality of material. It is available in several styles, colors, and widths, so can be used in a wide range of dock frames and applications on the market.

Q. I want to find out about installing new decking onto my existing dock frame. How does the quote process work?

A. We need several pieces of key information to properly present a quote, as there are numerous variables associated with each dock system.

Some of the information we look for would be:

1. How wide is the existing dock frame?

We start with a outside to outside dimension of current dock frame. This dimension should be within 1/8 of an inch.  We also need to know the internal width of the dock frame, or if we know the dimension of outer dock frame tubing, we can calculate the internal dimension.

2. Does the current dock frame have a lip that sticks above the framework where the panel will rest?

This could be a fairly thin lip or it could be rather wide. If the framework has a lip, we need the internal dimension from inside the lip to the opposite inside lip of dock frame. Some dock frames have no lip, the edge of the Titan panel would be visible. "exposed edge" is another terminology for when panels are visible.

3. Are there any middle stringers running down the length of dock framework.

Depending upon age of the dock system, it may be where there are no stringers, one stringer, 2 stringers, or in some cases as many as 3 stringers. Depending upon how many stringers are in the system, this may allow for the use of non-reinforced Titan vinyl decking.

For optimum performance, if the system has lineal length stringers at least every 16" one may use the NON reinforced Titan Vinyl decking. If a lineal length stringer is spaced at 24" on center then we suggest the use of reinforced decking. If over 24", then we suggest adding a stringer down the length of dock frame.

4. What is the length of the current dock system, to include any "L" s or T’s. And the length of each section of dock. Section lengths can vary from 4ft in length to as long as 20ft for the "typical" dock section. This would be an outside to outside dimension. Again, planning for the frame width construction on each end.

5. Are the panels to be installed permanently? Or are they planning to be removable for ongoing seasonal installation. If permanently attached, then individual boards may be purchased rather than buying in panel format.

6. The most common length panels are built for 4ft of running length. These fit well for typical 8ft, 12ft or 16ft length dock frames. The panels are created by use of light weight stringer stock underneath the panel. An average panel is made of 4ea individual boards. We have built them into 5ft panel lengths, for say a 10ft dock section, or to 6ft length panels if a 12 ft dock section and the customer is okay with the heavier panels.

7. Would any of the panels need to be notched to fit around dock uprights?? If so, planning is needed to ensure that the panels are supported by the upright area, or the stringer stock that holds the panels together may need to be moved slightly for clearance.

8. Cost of panels. There are numerous variables that dictate final cost of panels themselves.

a. Size of panels. This includes both width, and lengths.

b. Are the panels non reinforced, or do they come with the aluminum reinforcements molded into the panels. There are 2 reinforcement tubes per each one foot board!

c. Is any notching required, or is customer to take care of notching panels.

d. Quantity of panels purchased. Quantity breaks currently start at over 30ea 4ft x 4ft panels.

e. Is any delivery or installation labor needed. Delivery, or shipping, along with installation labor is quoted per each situation.

With the information provided above, we are then able to come up with a quote for review.

Full technical specs available on request.

Typical 4ft x 4ft aluminum reinforced panel weighs 35#.
