Boat Dock Inspections

Home Inspection of Arkansas, LLC is the only
Certified Boat Dock Inspector in the Garland County area.

Boat Dock safety should always be a concern.  Inspections should be performed by a licensed contractor and be done at least once a year, because docks are often exposed to the elements.

Our Boat Dock inspections comply with Arkansas Act 571 of 2011, which requires docks to have a functioning ground fault circuit or GFCI interrupter on dock electric receptacle boxes. GFCI devices measure the current in a circuit. An imbalance in the current, such as a discharge into water, will trip a GFCI, cutting off power.

A GFCI should be tested at least once a month based on the manufacturer's instructions and placed where it can be easily tested.

All dock metal frames should have “bonding jumpers” that are connected to a ground rod on shore. The association's information also notes that even if a particular dock has been installed or inspected by an electrical contractor, neighboring docks can present a shock hazard.

Wooden structures are inspected to insure structural integrity and address any safety concerns.  A complete written report is made available to the dock owner so that any problems may be addressed immediately.
