When considering building a marine related project, consider these items that make our company better than the other Marine Contractors in Central Florida.
These are thing property owners should consider when deciding which Marine Contractor they should use when building a deck, dock, seawall, bulkhead, pergola, gazebo, retaining wall, boathouse, boat dock, boat lift or other related marine construction.

Materials used are better
Real tongue and groove v-joint roof decking
Typhoon Lagoon Polyester rope is better than the Polypropylene and Nylon ropes used by others
Copper caps we use have no wood just copper and have a longer life than the 2 to 3 years for the wood trim caps used by others
Heavier structural members- 6x6 piles, 2x10 bents, 2x8 joists and triple 2x10 boxed beam headers
Skirt board for trimming and strength
Trim blocks for beauty
Permitting is faster and easier
We don’t ask the customer to pull any permits
We have our own in-house permitting department run by Sally Li who has a Master’s Degree in Geology and is very experienced in Environmental Permitting.
We have our own draftsman and consulting engineers who work on a timely manner to get the plans out for permitting.
We guarantee that we will have your plans into the initial permitting agency within (10) days after the customer has provided their survey and other required information.
The customer is protected from losses
We are Certified by the State of Florida as General Contractors and as such, any residential customer who enters into an agreement with us is eligible for a $25,000.00 recovery fund from the State of Florida should we fail to perform on your project. Only by dealing with State Certified Contractors are you able to gain this protection.
We carry $2,000,000.00 General Liability Insurance policy which protects the customer and Cloud 9 from catastrophic losses which could occur when performing the work of marine construction which can be very dangerous.
We carry the statutory Worker’s Compensation Insurance to not only protect our workers and ourselves from loss but also to protect the customer from losses if one of our employees get hurt on a project. If the customer deals with someone who does not have the required insurance, the customer could be liable for any injuries or death that occurs on the project.
Cloud 9 has gone the extra step to protect our customers. We carry United States Longshore and Harborworkers Act Insurance which covers our workers if they are injured over navigable waters of the US. Although most of our work is on non-navigable waters, the current trend in worker’s compensation Insurance litigation is that the attorneys go for the best insurance to sue. We don’t want our customers to be exposed to any litigation or losses so we have the insurance that 90% of the Central Florida Marine Contractor’s do not have.
