Rip Rap at the Lake of the Ozarks — Why It’s Important!

Image
Although rip rap may just look like rocks dumps on the shoreline, they actually service a big purpose!  When you have rip rap installed at the Lake of the Ozarks, you are making an investment to protect your shoreline from erosion. Each stone is strategically placed to dampen the impact of waves. Summer is almost here, which means big boats will soon be out — is your shoreline ready? Read on to find out the benefits of installing rip rap!


Erosion Protection  Rip rap works to absorb incoming waves, rather than reflecting it. This will help to keep the dirt at the bottom of your seawall from eroding away. It will also help to protect seawall footings form undermining. This is a wildly common problem for concrete sea walls at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Give Your Shoreline a Natural Look  Rip rap consists of various sizes of stone. Rip rap is a great solution for your seawall construction at the Lake of the Ozarks. Using stone versus concrete, wood, or vinyl will give your shoreline a more n…

Why Aluminum is the Best Material for Your Dock

Image
When it comes to material to build your dock, you may not realize all the choices you have to make. One Source Docks builds custom docks at the Lake of the Ozarks so you get the exact dock to meet your lake lifestyle. One decision you will need to make is which material you want for your dock. We offer both galvanized and aluminum docks at the Lake of the Ozarks. Today, we would like to explain why aluminum is the better material to use for your dock at the Lake of the Ozarks.


Durability  The number one reason that aluminum is a great dock material at the Lake of the Ozarks is it is extremely durable. There is a science behind this. Aluminum reacts positively with oxygen and creates a hard outer shell. This is what contributes to the longevity of an aluminum dock. Steel, on the other hand, reacts to the Earth's atmosphere and creates rust. Since aluminum will not rust, a lot of people prefer to use aluminum for their dock material.  Environmentally Friendly   Aluminum is an enviro…

Replace Broken Dock Pads!  Do you have broken concrete dock pads at your residential or commercial dock at the Lake of the Ozarks? Not only do broken dock pads create a bad appearance of your dock, but they can also be dangerous if they come completely loose or someone trips. You don't always need to start over and build a brand new dock, replacing your dock pads can extend the life of your existing dock and also give it a new look.

If you currently have wood as your dock floor versus concrete, we can typically replace the wood with concrete dock tiles if your wood is b…

Swim Platforms Are Great for Fishing!

Image
Fishing is an especially enjoyable pastime if you live at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you live on the water, you have the ability to cast a line whenever you want! If you don’t own a dock at the Lake of the Ozarks, or if you have a simple one-well dock, did you know a swim platform is great for fishing in addition to swimming? Read to to get a few tips for fishing off your dock!



Move With the Water When you're trying to catch bass at the Lake off your dock, a general rule of thumb is that the bass will move with the water levels. Spring typically brings frequent rain showers which can cause a fluctuation in water levels. Generally, the bass will rise with the water levels. With higher water levels, it's not a bad idea to target the top of the water. You'd be surprised how shallow the bass will live.


Create a Fish Habitat If you want to attract fish to your dock, a great way to do so is to provide a home for them! Placing trees near your dock will provide a good place for sp…
