Shipworms are wood boring worms that live in the salt water surrounding your dock. They bore into the wood eating on the high tides and excreting on low tides. Damage to your pilings will be created on those tidal levels. Our EPA approved marine wrap kills existing worms as well as prevents any future infestation. We also use concrete forms for repairing more extensive damage.
Gatorskyns are 2x thicker and 5x stronger than most piling wraps that have been commonly used for protection and repair. We have designed our product with a commercial grade 60 ml plastic, twice as thick as the 30 ml used on residential docks. Our signature 5 stainless steel bands hold up to 5,000 lbs. for added strength and longevity.
Our new Gatorskyns design makes it easy for almost anyone to install if you can use a hammer and don't mind getting a little wet. However, if you should need a professional to install your Gatorskyns, we have divers that can accommodate any needs.
