Hip Roof Docks

360 degrees of dock protection

All of our aluminum dock roof styles fall under three basic categories: hip roof, gable roof, or sundeck / upper deck shade dock roof. However, there are also additional options within each of thee categories – some of which combine two or more dock roof options. The roof you will choose for your Wahoo aluminum dock will depend on your dock layout, how you plan to use your dock, and your personal preferences and tastes.

Hip roof boat docks are built with a 5×12 pitch and are generally considered stronger and more rigid than a gable roof style. This can come in handy during extreme weather conditions and/or when you may need to be moving your floating dock frequently to chase the water.

You will find several unique features on a Wahoo Docks hip roof that make our aluminum docks with hip roofs the strongest you can find. Additionally, we offer several dock roof pole and eave trim wraps and other options that not only make your hip roof dock uniquely gorgeous, but also offer supplemental dock protection too!

Last but certainly not least… there are many dock roof color choices for your Wahoo Docks aluminum dock hip roof and additional accessories you can select such as a striking dock cupola with custom vane.

Additionally, extra stitch fasteners at each end of the panel contribute to the entire roof’s strength and durability and allow the roof to remain flat and secure for a lifetime.

Finally, the roof panels are personalized with any one of our premium colors and coated with an industry leading Kynar 500 finish, backed by a 30-year limited warranty.

Classic Tile Dock Roofing

Classic Tile Stone-Coated Steel dock roofing offers a stylish look while providing additional dock protection. It is a stone-coated steel roof panel built to protect against harsh weather conditions such as blizzards, tornadoes, moderate hail, or even fire.

This roof system is as attractive as a traditional s-shaped mission or Spanish tile, but lighter weight than clay or concrete and also provides unmatched protection against the most extreme weather.

Each roof panel is made from high quality, 26-gauge Galvalume steel, coated with an acrylic base coat. The base coat uses proprietary resins to promote lifetime performance in all climates. The stone chips used in the coating are non-oiled, natural granite granules that improve adherence to the base coat and enhance the appearance of the panels. Finally, a clear acrylic over-glaze is applied and baked on at a high heat to produce a gorgeous dock roof with long-lasting, durable, and fade-resistant protection.
