Posted by Michigan Lifestyle Properties on March 3, 2022


Pick out the right dock for your lake home!

Whether you’ve just bought a lake home or are looking to upgrade your current dock, choosing the right dock type is crucial to your fun summer activities. Not to mention, having a well maintained dock can increase the market value of your property! We’ve listed our favorite dock types below!

  1. Floating Dock – Easily the most flexible and manageable docks to own. A floating dock can be plastic, wooden, and steel, making it affordable no matter what your budget is. Needing to attach to another dock, no problem! Floating docks can be attached to pretty much anything, you get to decide!
  2. Permanent Docks – Permanent docks come in different shapes and sizes. These docks are designed to stay in the water and with the property for the duration of their life. Permanent docks are much sturdier, but can be pricier.
  3. Pipe Dock – Pipe docks are hybrids between floating and permanent docks. They are usually ore cost effective! Pipe docks have an aluminum frame and are made to be removed from the water. Unlike a permanent dock, pipe docks sit on the lake bottom, but are not as secured.
