AridDek by Wahoo Decks is the top choice of dock decking product for building cost effective, sustainable and low maintenance boat docks.
As a veteran, full service boat dock builder, Dave Goodrich knows a thing or two about choosing the best materials – including dock decking products – for the job.
Goodrich, the owner of Docks by Dave, has been recommending and installing AridDek, a waterproof aluminum deck board for some time. Goodrich discovered this low maintenance, long lifespan, dock decking product nine years ago and has been singing its praises since then.
Always looking for ways to improve the quality of his docks, Goodrich was looking for an alternative dock decking product or material that would last longer and require less maintenance than lumber and steel.
Typically, docks get full exposure to sun and hot temperatures. Consequently, the lumber becomes too hot to walk on and more susceptible to rotting.
With its waterproof, non-slip, cooler-to-the-touch surface and innovative design, AridDek is a dock decking product that alleviated problems Goodrich had with other materials.
“Before I discovered AridDek, I tried a variety of lumber, metal and composite materials,” said Dave Goodrich, owner of Docks by Dave. “Nothing compares to AridDek as a dock decking product. In fact, I’ve even been hired to replace lumber, composite and other materials on decks with AridDek. My customers love that it is low maintenance, will outlast other dock materials and looks great too.”
AridDek has a tongue-in-groove design that provides a beautiful, low-maintenance, fireproof decking surface. Furthermore, AridDek’s textured powder coating provides a safe, non-skid, surface that stays cooler to the touch than traditional decking planks. Also, unlike composite decking products, AridDek has a zero fire rating. Meaning, it is non-combustible and won’t smolder.
“Boat and dock builders are seeing the value in recommending aluminum materials and AridDek’s features make it an ideal building product for marina applications,” said Jon Bailey, Vice President of Wahoo Decks. “It’s naturally UV resistant to the deteriorating effects of direct sunlight and because the aluminum’s high thermal conductivity dissipates heat, the deck stays cooler than most wood or composite surfaces.”
