Big Wave Docks
Big Wave Docks are designed and engineered for rough wave conditions. The Big Wave Dock series have extra-large floats that provide a higher freeboard than average docks. The floating dock freeboard is measured from the deck surface to the water surface. A higher freeboard prevents large waves from topping the floats and soaking the frame.
Big Wave Docks also have upgraded framing to withstand a lot of large wave action. They often have optional wave attenuators that dampen the movement of the dock and make it easier to walk around, even for people with stability issues. Big Wave Dock series are designed to use the boats space and the walkways around the slip for over water living areas.
Duke allows a maximum of 1,000 sq ft of covered water, so our docks are designed to maximize the space used for family recreation and relaxation.
Morgan and his team (John, Clinton, Aurelio, Chris) did an excellent job in evaluating, redesigning, and modifying the roof structure of my boathouse to accommodate the permanent arch on my boat and thus allowing the lift to raise my boat completely out of the water. The quality of the work was excellent and these guys are great to work with. They came up with a great solution at a reasonable cost without having to replace the roof.

Morgan has just finished a dock for us. He knew what we wanted before we did. The whole project was a pleasure and his crew were not only courteous but a pleasure to witness. Hard working, great ethics and they never skipped a day until it was finished, even through the cold and rain. I have to say, we miss the boys and the banter. If you are considering a dock or repair, do yourself a favor and call Morgan. Thanks guys 🙂

Great job! I would hire Dock Services again in a NY minute. They did a renovation on our three-slip dock. Project estimate was 6-7 weeks and they completed within the time scope of the project. As a construction project manager, I appreciated the attention to project schedule and quality control during the build. These guys are pros. They do it right. From proposal to punch list, Dock Services is on top of it.
As a homeowner, I appreciated the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Dock Services exhibited at every step of the project. They literally transformed our dock from tired and worn out to a dock that looked brand new.
Also, Dock Services runs a tight ship: they’re clean, neat and hardworking. Easily one of the best contractors I have ever hired, bar none.

Morgan and his crew exceeded expectations with very minimal guidance. They knew what they were doing, and completed a dock restoration that functions and looks much better than I imagined would be possible based on what they had to work with.
Morgan’s crew was polite, professional, and respectful. The site was left cleaner than when they began. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dock Services to anyone, or use them again myself.
I recommend unconditionally.

I talked to 3 dock builders and Morgan was hands down best dock design, construction and value. His crew was amazing. We enjoyed having them on our property every day. Highly recommend this firm.

We could not have been more pleased with the outcome!
They began when they promised and never left the job until it was completed. They would not accept a deposit until they started the project. The craftsmanship and attention to detail this company delivers is amazing!

This is our second dock build experience with Morgan and his team on Lake Norman. He and his crew are the very BEST in the dock building business!! We could not be happier. His big wave series docks are a must! If you want a high quality product done on time, correctly with no mess and full service. Morgan is the one and only to trust and hire in the Lake Norman area. Thank you once again Morgan!
