Selection of dock material
The right selection of dock material is essential in dock building. Dock always stays in contact with saltwater. And thus it should be able to withstand constant contact with salt water.
We choose the right wood material that has excellent longevity and can withstand sea elements for a long time. Some common timber that is used for dock builders is Western Red Cedar, Redwood, Cypress, and Eastern White Cedar. The dock piles should be made of hardwood such as Douglas fir, Tamarack, and Hemlock.
The timber is often specially treated to be good dock construction material. The treatment might be chemical treatment or pressure treatment. EPA (Environment Protection Agency) sets the standard for processed hardwood. They make sure that treated wood has a low retention rate of chemical used.
The metal parts used in dock building reinforces the docks and increases its longevity. The metal parts need to be made of special metal that can withstand saltwater for a long time. Galvanized metal, Stainless steel metal, and metal treated for corrosion are some of the common types of metal used in docks.
