New Residential Construction

New Residential Construction by Crabco LLC, dba Rough Water Dock

Each new residential dock here at Rough Water Dock is carefully designed to the owner’s specifications. We can customize any ideas or plans you may have to fit your needs. From docks, to lifts and dock accessories, Rough Water Dock can cover all of your dock and lift needs.
New Residential dock construction processes begin with an idea of slip sizes desired or what boats will be housed in the new dock; PWC slips and swim platforms are also considered at this time. Rough Water Dock will evaluate the area the dock will be placed in to determine what size dock can be placed, and if any extra structural features should be added. From there, we create a residential dock ‘design’ to give you a feel for the layout and put the words into a visual. Once the customer approves the design, Next, we decide on the layout and begin the customization. This includes: roof color and style, trim color, roof over swim platform, hand rails,  WetSteps, lifts, electricity and more.
