The reason you hire a dock company at Lake Martin is because things are just different here. If you had your buddy built your last deck or you made a rabbit cage for your five year old, that’s fine. But your buddy doesn’t have the tools required for big dock jobs or the knowledge of how structure interacts with the lake. Let the professionals handle this.
Here is a Lake Martin Dock Company project I saw underway in the Blue Creek area as I was on my way to check out some lots at Emerald Shores. They are one of several dock companies at Lake Martin, and I actually worked for them one summer when I was in college. I still think building stuff with big machines is very cool.
If you’d like more info on dock building, call Sharon at Lake Martin Dock Company, NOT ME – I’m just a realtor. Their phone number is (334) 857-2443, and click here for their website. And remember, you must have a pre-approval and a permit from Alabama Power’s Shoreline Management before you modify your existing dock or build a new dock. The dock companies around the lake can give you more info about permitting, too.
