Why we choose aluminum over wood docks...

As shown above, wood docks not only mean slivers from the wood, but the obvious sagging boards
that could possibly give way when a person is entering or exiting the dock. In today's world
the average home owner cannot afford this type of liability.
We like to see the customer consider thier dock as an investment just like thier home.
Adding an aluminum dock adds to the value of your property.
Hotwood's aluminum dock systems is an investment that will last a lifetime!
