Fun Things to Do at the Lake of the Ozarks this Holiday Season

The holidays are almost here and whether you live at the Lake of the Ozarks or you own a second home, there are so many fun things to do in the area during the holiday season!

The Lake of the Ozarks is full of fun things to do in the off-season and today, our dock company at the Lake of the Ozark would like to share with you a few of the fun activities to partake in this holiday season!

Stabalize Your Shoreline with Rip Rap!

If you're new to owning lakefront property, you may not be aware of the impact big boats and waves can have on your shoreline. Now that you've made an investment in your lake home, you will want to make sure that you ensure your investment is protected! Our rip rap installation at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great solution for stabilizing your shoreline. Consider the many benefits of rip rap below. About Rip Rap  Rip rap is rock of various sizes that is placed at the base of seawalls. Its purpose is to absorb and dampen the impact energy of waves before they reach the seawall, reduce rebound waves toward your dock, provide bank stabilization, and lessen shoreline erosion. This keeps the stability of seawalls intact and protects your investment. Rip rap is not only important to the Lake of the Ozarks ecosystem, it is a necessity for both commercial and residential property owners. Rock Works also offers barge services and wave break installation around the Lake of the Oza

The Difference Between Galvanized and Aluminum Docks

If you're considering building a new dock for the 2020 season, now is a great time to start planning exactly what you want. At One Source Docks, we specialize in building residential and commercial galvanized and aluminum docks backed by the best warranty and service at the lake. You may not know the difference between a galvanized and aluminum dock. Both materials have their pros and cons, and today our dock company at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to share those with you!  Aluminum Docks   Aluminum docks have become more and more popular over the years because they require low maintenance and are extremely durable.  Pros: Aluminum does not rust which is a great feature for a dock that is in water 24/7. Aluminum docks will typically outlast the lifespan of other dock materials including galvanized steel.  Aluminum is a lightweight material. This is an advantage because it's easier to install and will not have a major impact on the foundation it is built on
