About Us

Our story & philosophy

How it all started 30 years ago

We are a full-service provider of custom designed docks, private marinas and lake access stairways on Lake Travis, near Austin, Texas. After spending a combined 40 years working in the industrial fabrication, welding, and maintenance realms, we knew that there was a need for high-quality custom dock solutions in the Austin area.

We took our knowledge, expertise, and drive to create Dock Works of Lake Travis. Our commitment to quality goes above crafting a great dock. We’re committed to making each and every client happy and excited during the design and build phases, as well as ensuring complete enjoyment and pleasure with the finished product.

Whether it’s repair work, an emergency, or a complete start-to-finish project, we put our heart into building water structures that will last for many years to come. There’s nothing we love more than to hear the satisfaction of a client years after their dock or marina has been delivered.

We’ve built beautiful private marinas, stairways and bridges for golf courses, docks for multi-million dollar homes, and we’re happy to lead you through the process every step of the way.
