Dock Pro is the premier dock builder in Lake County. Our community, Sandpiper Manor, needed to replace its old dock, as well as, finish the seawall from the marina area to the canal entrance. Our quest began as an extensive search looking at the work of local dock builders in Lake County including those in the surrounding counties. We eagerly selected Dock Pro because of their quality of work, their attention to detail, and their relationship with their past clients.
Gary Jr, his dad, Gary Sr, and Michael installed 125 foot of seawall, connecting to the existing seawall in the marina and running out to the canal entrance to the marina. This was a daunting task since root balls and the deteriorated old seawall needed to be removed as they progressed on their installation.
After finishing the seawall, they then took down the old dock, in sections, making room for the construction of the new dock. At the completion of the dock, we found that they had constructed a remarkably functional and beautiful dock for our community. It is a dock that the community is very proud of and one that is "the talk" of the surrounding communities.
The dock was constructed in sections on the shore, then floated out for placing in position, and the piers were then jetted in for the 5 x 10-foot dock section. After the first section was installed, the next section was built and floated out. It was amazing to watch the new section be raised and held in place for the piers to be jetted in place for attaching the next section of the dock.
Our dock is 110 foot with a 24 x 24-foot area with a 14 x 16-foot pavilion, and back to back, built in seating facing to the east and the west. On the way out to the end of the dock, there are also two benches built in opposing seating areas for 6 to 8 people to enjoy an evening breeze.
Dock Pro also constructed a 26 x 26-foot pavilion near our shuffleboard courts and putting green. The pavilion on shore matches the pavilion on the dock, which makes for a lovely view for all to see as they approach the recreational area.
We are currently waiting to be scheduled for the installation of another 165-foot of seawall on the opposing side of the marina. Once completed all the marina work will be completed, which make this area a show place for all to see and use. Should you as an individual or a community need a dock to be constructed, we would highly recommend contacting Dock Pro. You will be well pleased with their work, attention to detail, and professionalism.
