Barnacle Boys Piling Llc
Barnacle Boys Pilings specializes in the protection of dock and lift pilings from shipworms. Shipworms are a type of mollusk that enters your piling and eats its way through the entire pole. The shipworms will eat and burrow until the piling eventually snaps in half! This can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your dock and boat.
Previously, pilings were treated with creosote protecting them from shipworms. After being used for several years it was discovered that the harmful chemicals were leaking out of the pilings and harming the surrounding environment. As a result, creosote is no longer allowed to be used for piling treatment. Without treating the wood, shipworms are able to infest the poles at an alarming rate.
Our method of piling protection and piling repair, is environmentally safe and effective!
