Construction Services

Muskrat Construction Inc. specializes in both wood and aluminum dock/ pier construction, retaining walls and cable lift installations.


All of our piers and docks are built with YOU the customer in mind. We build using only the best products available to acheive the most reliable and problem free docks around. No one wants to have maintenance on their dock. That is why so many of our customers have chosen Wolf and Azek decking for their flooring opposed to the old traditional treated flooring.

If you prefer the look of the aluminum dock, we offer two different dock companiees that are exceptional in standing behind their products. We build both Legacy docks and ML Dock

No matter what, Muskrat Construction Inc. continues to strive to build the best construction and give our customers the highest quality products available. Simply stated "with your ideas and our knowledge, we can make it happen just the way you want it...Every time."

We offer several docking products, as well. Pressure treated wood, vinyl or aluminum – you get exactly what you want time and time again.

We here at Muskrat Construction Inc. are so pleased to offer a wide variety of boat lifts designed for your individual tastes. We have lifts from the price savey to the fully loaded top of the line. We can make it happen. We have been installing lifts for over 30 years. When we first started out, we had to fabricate our own lifts. But as the boatlift manufacturing boom kicked off, we no longer had to do that. Now days, we are proud to offer the following boatlift manufactures. They all have different styles, pricing and construction. One thing still rings true today as it did when we first started building, Muskrat Construction has pledged to the customer "never offer a product we wouldn't own or use ourself".

All of Muskrat Construction's structures are designed using the same demanding and rigorous guidelines to insure a long life and quality-constructed product.

Many times, our customers would rather max out their square footage by adding a sitting area or possibly a gazebo. Other times, customers would rather protect their boat by covering it with a roof system to protect it from the weather. Each customer is different, which makes all of our jobs different, too. We don't "cookie cut" our jobs!

  • All construction falls in the same guidelines as our piers.
  • All roof panels consist of 26 gauge, baked-on enamel finishes with several colors from which to choose.
  • Black, rubber bumper sides and corners are installed to protect your boat's finish.
  • We offer flip-up ladders so the don't get that "algae slime" all over them.
  • 8 - 8" galvanized cleats are typically used for mooring.
  • All required reflectors mounted for safety.

Shoreline Stabilization has become a major issue for homeowners on the lake. You have invested alot of money into buying that perfect piece of land to only have erosion slowly take it into the lake.The prevention of erosion should be your first concern as a waterfront property owner. The loss of shoreline will depreciate the value of your property and make deep water access further away.

Rip-Rap is the most common form and most economic of all the shoreline stabilization techniques. Muskrat Construction offers high quality installation and repair of rip rap for Lake Norman, Mtn Island and Lake Wylie. We utilize the highest grade of geosynthetic fabric underneath our stone to ensure no soil erosion and you will never have unsightly weeds growing up through your rock shoreline.

Redi-Rock Block is a nice alternative for shoreline stabilization. It is more expensive than traditional methods, however, it is a very attractive and effective finished product.

The Keystone Retaining Wall System is a structurally sound, aesthetically appealing, and economical alternative to boulder, timber tie, and cast-in-place retaining walls. As a gravity wall system, the Keystone Standard unit provides the weight and stability to resist applied earth pressure for walls up to 60 feet high.
