Dock Winterization

Dock De-Icing & Bubbler Installation

You never know what kind of winter to expect in Tennessee. Boat owners know to winterize their boats when out of use, but not everybody takes enough precaution with docks. Bring in the dock experts at Knoxville Barge to inspect and winterize your dock this year to avoid a rude awakening in spring.

As custom dock builders and repair specialists, we know the forces that a dock has to contend with throughout the year. We can spot issues that could lead to damage this winter, and take care of all the physically difficult tasks of dock winterization.

Do You Need to Winterize a Dock?

Although our lakes and rivers don’t turn into hockey rinks in the winter, it’s important to prepare a dock for cold weather and precipitation. Months of inactivity, regardless of weather, can spell trouble for a dock.

Without preventive maintenance, parts that are worn out or broken already will get worse if left to rot. Shallow waters can freeze over more quickly, potentially endangering a fixed dock. Water on cables and metal components can cause freezing and rust damage.

Dock winterization for Tennessee lakes and riverfront homes can help prevent damage to dock pilings, boat lifts, and more. We can also winterize a floating dock and tighten its connections or remove it for storage.
