Piers & Docks

Muskrat Construction is a leader in the construction and repair of piers and docks. We have built many of the quality piers and docks on Lake Norman, Lake Wylie and other lakes around North and South Carolina, more importantly we understand the importance of building a dock or pier that suits your needs and lifestyle. The considerations when designing a dock or pier are wave action, soil type and the use of area. An effective design is the true foundation of a successful pier or dock project. Call us today to schedule a consultation.


  To promote longevity in the life of your pier or dock, Muskrat Construction uses all CCA pressure treated lumber and pilings when in contact with the water to instill a longer life span of the structure. All of our hardware is galvanized or stainless to insure no corrosion, if possible. Here at Muskrat Construction, we understand that all jobs are different. With quality being our highest priority, we strive to take the extra step to do it right from the beginning.


As the marine construction industry changes yearly, more and more consumers are seeing the true value in aluminum docks and piers. The longevity outweighs the cost ten fold.

Also, the ease of maintenance when using aluminum is advantageous to treated wood structures. With a garden hose, you have all you need to keep this dock "shipshape." All components in our aluminum docks, slips and covered slips are to the highest standards by ASE. All components are marine-grade 6061-T6 alloy (the very highest in the industry) and MiG-welded by ASE welders to ensure structural integrity and accuracy.

All main dock structures consist of 6" channel for boatslips and docks up to a 10" channel for second story systems, roofs, or pier sections.All flooring systems have several choices of colors from which to choose. High density Formex polyethylene floats, U.S. Army Corp-approved, keep your structure floating for years with not problems. All stainless hardware throughout.


The use of CCA pressure treated lumber for dock material and pilings is typical for our area. We use only galvanized or stainless steel hardware to ensure your dock or pier is "corrosion-free". We also offer maintenance free decking by Wolf and Azek. They both offer years of maintenance free and splinter free decking.
