The good news is you can build a custom dock regardless of your property and shoreline conditions. While relatively flat, easy-to-access shorelines generally means installation is more straightforward, you can still build a dock even if you have a steep slope.

What to Know When Building a Dock on a Steep Slope

Building a dock on a property that has a steep descent to the shore or one that consists of rocky or steep underwater conditions can be more challenging, but with a little ingenuity, you can still design and build the perfect dock for your home.

Here are some things to keep in mind as you consider the limitations (and opportunities) of your shoreline.
