Cleaning your wrap allows for a longer life span of the wraps; leading to a longer life span of the dock. Over time growth will occur within the nail line. This inevitably will result in your wraps to begin to pull apart. Keeping your wrap and nail line clean allows for the wrap to do it's job properly for an increased amount of time. We offer an annual or a bi-annual wrap cleaning service that is very affordable.

Piling wraps put an end to marine borer activity. These tiny organisms feast on wood piling.
Our dive team installs a polyethylene wrap reaching below the sand line and to the framing of the dock. This method protects the pilings from sunlight and oxygen, killing wood borers.
This simple fix protects your major dock investment, adding years to the integrity of the wood piling.
Step 1: We will start by cleaning all the growth off the piling. This allows for the wrap to sit correctly on the piling.
Step 2: We will wrap the clean piling with two layers of shrink wrap. This is the most important step in the process. The shrink wrap will cut off water supply and sunlight to the piling. This will kill the marine borers that have already begun populating inside the piling. This will also prevent future borers that sneak through the nail line from getting to the piling.
Step 3: Installing the polyethylene wrap. This is the wrap that you are able to see when looking at the dock. This prevents any future marine borers from infiltrating the piling. We pay extra attention to detail so we ensure all the wraps are the same height and I also have what is called the "beer rule". If you are sitting outside with your friends and family having a beer, you will not be able to look at the dock and see a single nail. We make sure to hide all the nails so the only way to see them is if you are looking around under the dock.
