Dock Roofing

the crowning glory of your boat dock project

So Many Boat Dock Roof Possibilities

really only limited by your imagination







First, you will choose your dock roof style. This choice, just as your boat dock layout selection, will largely be influenced by your personal style and the functional purpose of your aluminum dock. Next, you will have the opportunity to inject a little personality into your dock project, by choosing from a wide selection of basic and custom boat dock roof colors.

your Wahoo aluminum dock roof style options

Wahoo categorizes roof types into three basic styles — Gables, Hips, and Sun Decks.

Within the basic boat dock roof styles we offer, there are variations to accommodate a range of dock layouts, local nuances, and personal preferences. Boat dock roof choices are typically made with equal regard given to personal aesthetic appeal, desired utility, and cost.

Important Considerations Regarding Each Roof Type for your Wahoo aluminum dock:


Hip vs Gable

The most economical boat dock roofs are the gables and hips. Between those two options, the hip roof offers slightly better protection from the elements. The hip roof is often considered more attractive than the more cost competitive gable.



When additional recreational space is desired or especially when a large dock footprint is not possible, our sun decks offer a great solution.


Sundeck with Gable

Wahoo pioneered the sun deck roof with gables over a decade ago, and it is still the most popular roof style we produce.

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.

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.
