Choosing a permanent dock for your waterfront property, regardless of whether it’s your home, business, or vacation rental, is quite obviously a significant undertaking. The dock you eventually commit to needs to be something you’ll be just as happy with now as you are decades down the road, making it essential to consider all of the options and features needed for the most reliable use and durability. At Martin’s Custom Tidesides, we work closely with each client to ensure that they’re happy with the permanent dock they select.
