About Us

Wayne Turner has been offering marine construction services to the Severn River and surrounding areas since 1990. His passion, professional experience and attention to detail are what set our firm apart.

At Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works Inc., our detailed craftsmanship depends on three key values:

1. Experience

With over two decades of experience in a wide range of unique projects, we are committed to the highest building standards and a truly creative vision for your waterfront development.
Our firm is well regarded and has built strong relationships based on mutual respect, honesty and cooperation with building and planning professionals, three local townships, and Parks Canada.

2. Knowledge

Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works Inc. is a CWB certified company which ensures that your final product will meet the rigorous standards established by the Canadian Welding Bureau. All of our procedures and processes are professionally engineered so you are guaranteed peace of mind in knowing that your final product is in compliance with strict guidelines and building practices that will stand the test of time.

3. Creativity

Whatever challenges your waterfront presents, we will find a creative way to get the job done right. Where others see obstacles, Wayne has a vision for what’s possible. With a fully customized design approach, combined with Wayne’s many years of experience and intuitive understanding of what can be accomplished, we work with our clients to create a final product that is individually suited to their unique waterfront and lifestyle needs.

Dock Styles

Adding a dock to your waterfront will allow maximum usage and enjoyment of your cottage property. We will assess your waterfront to determine which style of dock is best suited for your property.

Crib Docks

Crib docks are a traditional, familiar and cost-effective approach to dock building. Consisting of square-cut timber structures filled with rock materials, cribs create a solid foundation for your dock to stand on. Crib dock applications are restricted based on water depths and require regular maintenance as they tend to deteriorate over time.

Permanent Pile Docks

Our firm specializes in permanent, custom steel docks which are drilled and pinned to bedrock. Engineered and constructed to last for generations, your family will enjoy your home’s waterfront for years to come. Additionally, permanent pile docks offer environmental benefits including free-flow of water, which ensures that pre-existing natural habitats can be maintained.

Floating Docks

Floating docks can be a great solution in areas of fluctuating water levels. Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works Inc. is a dealer for state-of-the-art floating dock systems, which are adaptable to most shorelines and are an environmentally friendly solution to dock installation. Our commercial grade floating docks are stable, safe and solidly anchored to your waterfront.

BOAT HOUSES AND PORTS

An Aesthetic Landmark to your Waterfront Property

A boat house or boat port is a fantastic way to protect your watercraft from the elements or water movement. At Severn Falls Marina and Metal Works Inc., we work with you to imagine, design and create a boat house or boat port that suits your needs and lifestyle.
Custom-built boat houses are manufactured by welding structural steel as per the processes and procedures engineered by the Canadian Welding Bureau. Clients have the assurance in knowing that their structure is solid, safe and meets the highest construction standards in the industry. An aesthetic landmark to your valuable waterfront property,
we’ll ensure that your boat house or boat port is crafted with beauty and creativity to pair with our exceptional workmanship and custom design. Clients can add features such as storage, multiple storey, and areas for entertainment as they maximize the usage of their recreational waterfront.
Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works Inc., also deals in engineered and quality crafted boat and watercraft lifts available in a variety of styles. We will install your lift and ensure that it operates efficiently as designed. Please see our Partners page to learn more about our lifts.

Waterfront Development

Let’s work together to create a vision for your waterfront.

Effective waterfront development requires an understanding of the local environment, the fluctuations of the water body and the impact of the elements at their worst. At Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works Inc., we consider all perspectives when designing an effective waterfront project. We want to ensure that your investment looks and functions at its best for many years to come.

We’ll help you design and build state-of-the-art waterfront projects to maximize your outdoor space. Whether you’re looking to build a boat house, boat port, waterfront entertainment area, cabana bar, or new docks and decks, no project is too large or too small for our skilled construction team.

Tea Lake Walkthrough Improvement Project.

I assisted the Tea Lake Cottage owners in managing a project to improve the safety of the walk through at the north end of Tea Lake. We had a difficult project to perform, which included the removal of some bedrock and much needed walk through repairs that presented a safety hazard for the Cottage owners on Tea Lake. Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works Inc. won a competitive bid to complete the project.

Wayne and his crew did an excellent job under difficult circumstances. Wayne’s experience and this team’s work ethic allowed them to remove some very stubborn rock and perform the required walk through repairs on time and within budget. Wayne also recommended some additional safety measure that were very well received by the cottage owners. Further, as there were multiple parties involved, we especially appreciate the fact that Wayne and Maria worked on the project while it was being funded.

I would be most pleased to recommend Wayne and his team, our job was very well done.

- I. Lawrence Nadolny

When my wife and I decided we wanted to enhance our cottage waterfront we turned to Wayne Turner and Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works. Wayne had recently finished building a beautiful and functional boat port for my sister’s cottage next door. We met with Wayne and explained our wants for a waterfront cabana bar, we had ideas but not a complete concept. Wayne worked with us to develop the design concept and then we watched as that concept became reality. The cabana bar is beyond our expectations, the workmanship is great, and the design functional and attractive. As a builder of custom homes, it has been a true pleasure working with another professional who actually met our own extremely high expectations. We are very pleased and looking forward to our own boat port, our next project with Severn Falls Marina.

- Lynda and Bruce

We moved into our cottage on Gloucester Pool in the Fall of 2009 and decided after our first summer that we wanted a boat port and deck for our waterfront. After some research, we met with Wayne and Maria at Severn Falls Marina. Wayne took us on a tour of the area and showed us several of his projects before we decided on the plans for our place. Two years later, we can’t imagine cottage life without our new waterfront… the boat port and dock have enhanced our experience beyond what we had imagined.

The structure is functional, the construction is robust, and it all looks great! Wayne and Maria are professional and accommodating and we would recommend their work to others; as a matter of fact, we have!

I am writing you this letter today to express our sincere gratitude for all of your assistance in the planning and the hard work that was involved in making the project become a reality. The professionalism of all that were involved in this project was amazing. Our project was completed on time and on budget which in this world quite often does not happen. Diane and I are thrilled with the way it turned out and many boats passing by our boat port have commented on how amazing it looks .

A great big thank you to you and your staff.

- Shelley and Paul Tushinski

We have used Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works for 2 projects at our cottage. In both cases the results were spectacular. In particular, they built a screened in Muskoka Room for us which is really beyond both mine and my husband’s expectations. Wayne took care of everything from design and permits to final construction. The end result is outstanding. We found the quality of workmanship to be incredible and all the trades are very nice, easy going and neat. Although the work was going on during the summer, we never felt put out or infringed upon.

We have been very pleased with the professionalism of each job, both look fantastic and both came in on budget in a timely manner!
Both Paul and I would not hesitate to recommend Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works and will likely use them again in the future!

- Ted and Wanda Valleau

Over the past 30 years Wanda and I have bought and sold and/or renovated many properties. Each and every experience has been marred with a few or a lot of issues and drama. Issues such as budget overruns, lateness, poor workmanship and general no shows. If you’ve experienced this before I know you can relate!

We are new to the Severn but many long time residents pointed us to Wayne and Maria last Fall when we decided to build a boat port at our waterfront. Entering into this project, experience told us to expect all or some of the typical problems.

Not to be. Our project became as important to Wayne and Maria as it was to us!
Things progressed from the design phase through the permit phase to the construction phase with not even a hiccup! Additional requests were happily agreed to and reasonably billed.
Their crew was also great to deal with. Professional, proactive and efficient.

Our boat port was completed on time, on budget and is a structure we are very happy with and proud of. We were almost sad at completion thinking that we wouldn’t be seeing Wayne and Maria any more. We shouldn’t have worried because they’ve become friends and people we now enjoy just getting together with.

I take great pleasure to recommend the work of Wayne Turner. My boat lift in an enclosed boathouse lifts 16,000 lbs and is completely out of the water. It is a marvel to my guests and a source of pride to me. The work was done on time and budget, and the work area was always left neat and tidy. My wife and I have engaged Wayne to do many tasks both inside and outside of the cottage and every job has been done quickly and to our satisfaction.

From the minute I first contacted Wayne Turner to give me a price to build my dock he was incredibly helpful. We discussed my request and he explained all my options. His quote was more than fair and very clear. The dock was built strikingly beautiful and right to spec. When I received the final bill there were no surprises. No extra costs and completed right on time. Wayne’s laudable work is matched by his integrity. I proudly recommend Wayne’s enthusiasm and pristine work to anyone.

- Alan Emery

Working with Wayne is a pleasure. He is enthusiastic and tries to understand your needs so that he can find the best and least expensive solution. When he wasn’t the expert, he recommended one to do the job – local and reasonable to boot. My experience is based on having Wayne build two steel frame docks and a boat house, as well as helping us to remove some very large trees and fix up a messy wooded driveway and parking lot. All of this was done under the extreme scrutiny of the several authorities who issue permits on the heritage waterway (Trent system) where we have our cottage. The workmanship is excellent with attention to detail including shaping the dock to the shoreline. Maria handles the business end and is very efficient and careful as well as responsive to questions and suggestions with a smile. Would I hire them again? Yes indeed!

- Jim Murray

I have used the services of Severn Falls Marina & Metal Works for the construction of my docks, as well as other projects at our cottage. They built a first quality dock, which will last for many years to come. Their schedule was reliable and their attention to detail was what you would hope for in a large project. When the job was finished the site was left in pristine condition. I have since used them again for a driveway project and a boat lift walkway and they were equally first rate with these tasks. I have no hesitation in recommending them for cottage projects, whether large or small.
