Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I Install a FWM Dock on my Own?
Installing your new dock system from FWM is relatively easy. It does require a bit of mechanical ability, but if you have a friend and can lift 50 lbs. it can usually be completed within a few hours. You can always reach out to your dock specialist for tips on installing your particular layout or check out our owners manual for reference.
Q: Can I leave a floating dock in the water year-round?
If your region experiences freezing temperatures in the winter, you may need to make a plan to remove your floating dock seasonally. Aluminum floating docks should not be left in the water during the winter, as ice can damage their infrastructure. EZ Docks, however, can be left in the water year-round. Though the polyethylene product itself is safe in the ice, it’s best to consult a dock specialist to discuss any site-specific variables that could increase the risk of damage.
Q: Is FWM Dock really maintenance free?
Aside from the seasonal installation of your dock, yes it really is maintenance free. From the stainless-steel hardware to the pole caps, none of the components of our docks are going to break down or not look good over time.
Q: Do you finance?
We offer several forms of financing. Residential lending is done through Synchrony Financial while commercial leasing is done through Marlin Financial.
