While building a waterfront home, we can construct any water work you desire. We have built bulkheads, stationary
docks, gazebos, and floating docks.
While we sub-contract the installation of the pilings, our framing carpenters complete all the remaining
work. The pictures to the right show projects that are completed, and projects that are under construction.
You can see larger versions of these pictures by clicking on any one of them. Of particular importance is
how we construct our floating docks.
After the destruction caused by Hurricanes Bertha and Fran, it was obvious that floating docks had to
be much stronger, and that pilings had to be much taller above the high tide mark to compensate for storm
surges. We examined many floating dock designs and added our input to develop the design you see in the
pictures to the right.
All the structural members are bolted and the deck boards are hand nailed with stainless nails. This
is a very structurally sound design and we have never had a floating dock damaged by a hurricane.
If your home requires the construction of a well-crafted water structure, such as a gazebo or dock, then
you can count on W. Wells Corp. to deliver a superior product.
