Determining How Much Piling Wrap is Required

  • To determine how much piling wrap required for your project calculate the circumference of each piling (multiply the diameter by 3.14) and add 6” for overlap.
  • For shallow water applications the 60” piling wrap is ideal and can typically protect the entire submerged portion of the piling.
  • For deeper waters where more than 60” of the post requires wrapping the 36” wrap can be used to vertically to wrap the post at any length required. (if the circumference of the post is 32” or less)
  • We recommend that the piling wrap is fixed to the post using 1-1/4” stainless steel ring-shank roofing nails. (can be purchased locally at a hardware store) Each nail should be installed every 2” along the material seams.

Dock Piling Wrap

Piling Wrap protects your dock pilings from cracking, and chipping as well as helps to keep sea life from growing on the piling which eventually causes structural damage. The wrap offers great protection to extend the life of the wood and avoid costly replacement. Piling wrap is made of extremely durable HDPE plastic that is simply attached to the outside of the piling to keep it safe from marine borers. Marine borers are members of two families, mollusks and crustaceans.  Both families live in seawater and most waterfront structures need to be protected from them. These creatures can penetrate even the toughest wood. You can conveniently install the wraps on pilings that are already in place. Just add wraps to any existing dock to shield it from any further damage.

Piling Protection

Whether you need to protect your existing dock or are in the process of building a new one, it is helpful to know how to protect them.

Treated Wood Pilings

Treated wood is standard lumber mostly suited for ground and water contact. This wood can withstand a great deal of abuse but added protection will greatly increase its lifetime.

Greenheart Pilings

Greenheart is a tropical wood used to help for docks dealing with both freshwater and saltwater. It's prized for its durability and rot resistance but can still benefit from some wrap protection. We highly recommend using a wrap to decrease UV breakdown and its abrasion resistance.

Fiberglass Pilings

Fiberglass is incredibly strong and can withstand whatever outside elements can fling its way. In most cases, all the piling needs is piling caps to ward off birds. This piling does not normally need any additional piling protection.

How To Repair Your Dock Piling

This article will give you some valuable tips and help you decide if you can do the work yourself or have to bring in professional help.

Dock pilings are foundations that support marine structures such as piers and docks. These structures should be solid and last a long time to keep them from falling into the water or getting moved away by waves.

Keep in mind, weather conditions and the continual flow of water can damage the structure which in turn will affect the dock's strength. Without proper care, the structure could collapse causing serious harm to anyone standing on it. You can stop accidents from happening by keeping the structure in good condition.

If you have encountered any damage to the structure, making immediate repairs will keep it from getting worse. In most circumstances, major repairs should only be taken care of by professionals, but there are some things you can do yourself.

Keep An Eye Out For Piling Damage

If you find any signs of damage to the pilings, the entire dock will be in serious trouble. Therefore, you must inspect the pilings on a regular basis and make repairs immediately.

Signs To Watch Out For:

  • Creaking
  • Cracks and Dents
  • Signs of Mold & Rot on Wood Pilings
  • Rust & Calcium
  • The Dock Is Wobbling
  • The Material Used for the Pilings

Pilings are made from wood, concrete, vinyl, or steel. All these materials have their own maintenance requirements, so you need to know what your dock piling is made of in order to perform proper repairs. As an example, sealing cracks can be used to fix concrete but is not a good choice for steel pilings that are rusted.

Find Out What Caused The Damage

There are many reasons why a dock piling has been damaged and each material has its own specific requirements. For instance, dock piling damaged by water can cause wood to rot, metal to rust, and concrete to break apart. You will have to waterproof the dock pilings that are continually exposed to water over the years.

Serious weather conditions will cause the material used for the piling to decay faster than usual. Continual heat exposure will crack wood pilings while storm surges will smash against the piling causing it to bend or break. You will have to protect them with quality piling sleeves or wraps.

Also, there are marine organisms that can damage the dock's foundation over time. Shipworms are known to eat away at wood pilings causing infections. Although it's possible to manually remove some marine organisms, you might have to replace the infested foundation or call in a professional.

Damage to a piling can be caused by people's actions or an unexpected accident such as a boat crashing into the dock. Placing heavy equipment on the dock can cause it to collapse.

Should you choose to repair or replace the pilings?

Depending on the damage, you have to decide whether to repair or replace the pilings. If you have repairs that are minor like replacing worn-out piling wraps that are worn out or rusty nails or screws, you can take of it yourself. On the other hand, if you have serious damage like large cracks, an infestation of shipworms, or major corrosion, they will have to be replaced. Decide if you can take care of the problem or bring someone in to help you out.

When Push Comes To Shove, you might have to call in an expert. Even though you can handle minor repairs, getting a piling contractor is the better choice for significant damage or serious maintenance issues. The bottom line, contractors will know what to do.

If you decide to go with a contractor, here are some questions you should ask beforehand:

Do they have the right tools and machines for the job?

Will either you or the contractor have to get the permits to prevent legal issues?

Will the marine ecosystem remain safe?

Address any problems arising from their work. They should have the proper insurance and warranties.

If you need to replace wood pilings, the contractor should know what wood should be used such as redwood, cypress, or Douglas fir. The contractor should apply the right treatment for the wood along with any additional coatings required.

Maintain Your Dock's Foundation

After repairing or replacing the dock piling, it's very important to keep it in great shape:

On a regular basis, protect the pilings with wraps and caps to help prevent further damage.

Thoroughly clean the pilings every time you clean the dock. Make sure you remove all rust, stains, or calcium build-up along with molds. When caring for your dock piling, inspect the structure and look out for any signs of damage.

Keep in mind, your dock's foundation will remain under water so proper maintenance and repairs are very important for keeping the structure in good condition and avoiding any future accidents that might arise. If you do not know what should be done, contact a professional to help you out. Knowing your limitations and doing whatever is necessary to keep your dock safe will be well worth your time.
