What type of wood is the frame and the decking?
If you choose to Build It Yourself the Wood is not provided. What you receive from PlayStar are all the brackets, hardware and dock components to build one 4 ft. x 10 ft. Stationary section. Lumber (treated or cedar), screws and pipe sold separately. See "Tools & Materials" tab to download a complete list of lumber required.
Can I build it 6'x10', without scarifying durability and safety?
We have plans for 6' x 10' Commercial Grade Docks.
Do I need to remove my dock during the winter months?
Normal freezing and thawing will not damage a PlayStar Dock. However, docks are left in at owner’s discretion. No dock can withstand heavy ice movement.
You should consider the following factors:
What has been the history of ice movement at your location?
Do other dock owners in your area take their docks in or leave them out?
Are there local restrictions or requirements?
What kind of recreational activities take place around the dock during the winter?
