Why Aluminum is the Best Material for Your Dock

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.


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 environmentally friendly material because it recycles very easily. When you melt down aluminum, even if it's been recycled time and time again, it will not lose its original physical attributes. It is actually estimated that 75% of the aluminum that was produced since the 1880s for industrial use is still in use today!    

Less Maintenance Cost 

You may pay more upfront for an aluminum dock but it will require minimal maintenance once it is complete. This will help you to save money over time becasue you shouldn't have to make costly repairs down the road. This will give you more time out enjoying your dock and less time making repairs. Typically, an aluminum dock will last twice as long.
