The Importance of Proper Dock Framing
It’s important that your dock framing adheres to all applicable building codes. Taking the easy or cheapest route may come back to cause you trouble.
Many waterfront homes in South Florida have retaining walls between the dock and the backyard. If you are considering adding or repairing your retaining wall or any load bearing structure, it is very important to have a certified engineer familiar with marine applications look at the plans and specifications of your load bearing foundations, footers, pin piles, and grade beams. Making sure you use the right marine grade lumber for the framing of your deck or dock is incredibly important for safety and longevity. You should always make sure your framing, stringers, and dock or deck super structure adhere to building codes for your area.
