A floating dock is a great way to maximize the potential of your home or business – not to mention a terrific investment in your own enjoyment! It’s one of the first things a person sees each time they look out onto the water and the most noticeable aspect of it for years to come. One of the most important decisions is the material from which it’s made. So what is our recommendation for the best decking for a dock? PVC decking material. But not just any PVC decking material. Read on to learn more.
Why PVC Decking Material?
PVC decking has quickly become the most popular decking choice for the majority of applications. PVC decking material is made by whipping PVC into a lighter, less dense, aerated foam. The foam is then extruded to various sizes and takes on the working characteristics of real wood without all the disadvantages. The high-quality polymer resins and a patented ColorWatch™ ASA premium capstock block the sun’s harmful UV rays and resists fading and weathering.
When it comes to docks, PVC is often the best decking because it is economical, low-maintenance, lightweight, and can be shaped for custom configurations. It’s also available in a wide array of colors. AccuDock is the Southeast regional distributor for Wolf PVC Decking – a no-maintenance solution for every climate, budget, and design.

All AccuDock floating docks are made from HDPE flat sheets, which completely enclose an EPS foam block. EPS is recyclable and doesn’t contain harmful CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs, or formaldehyde. Nor does it contain pollutants that can leach into the water. Furthermore, recycled HDPE does not produce emissions during production or leak toxic chemicals into waterways.
