Four Essential Ingredients of a Quality Built Wood Floating Dock

DOCK FLOATS

Cottage Docks uses ONLY rotationally moulded flotation shells that are manufactured from virgin polyethylene resin. This non-contaminate contains UV inhibitors and carbon black/sandstone pigment to protect against ultra violet degradation. The shells will not sink or contaminate the water, even if punctured. This strong, durable material is resistant to environmental stress and cracking.

The bottom line is, this seamless, one-piece construction dock float is unmatched against any other floating system. For further protection, all of our dock floats are filled with closed cell EPS foam and carry a 12-year warranty.

We use only Techstar Floats under our floating docks. The #1 float manufacturer in the world made here in Canada.

Western Red Cedar
Why Western Red Cedar?  Well, for starters, this highly revered, durable wood is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks, which means anything you build with it will last longer and require less maintenance. Aesthetically, there really is no substitute for the natural beauty of Real Cedar. Imbued with decidedly crisp, yet superbly rich, tonal properties.
SUSTAINABILITY – Independent studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is superior to synthetic products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, western red cedar actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. And unlike brick, cement and composites, Real Cedar is renewable and biodegradable. Plus, Real Cedar is sourced from the most sustainable managed forests in the world.
