We have worked with Rick and his team over the past decade as they have built, maintained and expanded our floating dock and lifts. We have also used them for projects around the property. Rick is honest, responsive and forthright. His work product is excellent.

We had several projects done by Rick at our house on Tawakoni. We were very happy with the work performed. Rick went over and above to get the permits and approvals to get the work done.



In May, 2006 McKenzie Lake Works in the person of Rick McKenzie, bid on a project to construct a pier and boat dock on our property on Lake Tawakoni, just outside the town of West Tawakoni. Mr. McKenzie met with us to review our design needs at the site, then quickly formulated a construction bid and timetable, which we ultimately accepted. Within a few weeks, McKenzie Lake Works completed th construction of a 120 foot steel and treated wood pier into the lake, as well as a 540 square foot steel and wood boat dock. The completed pier and dock was as designed, the quality of the work was professional and the completion timing was as promised. Since the completion of the project, we had one minor steel weld loosen and a call to McKenzie Lake Works resulted in a quick and quality repair to this one weld. We have since not experienced any problems with the construction. based on our interaction with Rick McKenzie and McKenzie Lake Works on our project, we would highly recommend both he and his company as contractors who can be trusted to do a quality job and do it on time and on budget.

I met Rick 3 years ago, when I was gathering bids for a dock/boatlift for my house on Lake Tawakoni. I was struck by his candidness and impressed with the way he listened carefully to my design requirements. He made several recommendations that created a better dock/boatlift and saved me money. Through his long standing connections in the area and reputation for honesty and integrity, he was able to help expedite certain permit approvals that would have otherwise caused lengthy delays in the build process. Rick always practiced “Customer First”. He kept me informed during all aspects of the build process and never left a call unanswered. I have been so impressed with his integrity and customer service that I have awarded him several other jobs without putting them out for bid and have recommended him multiple times over the last 3 years. I am happy to give Rick my wholehearted endorsement.

As President of Greenville Club Lake, I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our new piers. After you built the new swimming pier, the Board of Directors was so pleased, we decided to have you replace the old fishing pier. Both piers are exactly what we envisioned. Quality is excellent and cost was reasonable. Keep up the good work!



I am writing this letter in hopes that someone interested in building a boat dock will consider McKenzie Lake Works. We had a very good experience with them. Before deciding on this company, we went out and compared prices and workmanship. The overall experience was excellent and the staff was awesome! Rick’s supervisor’s always answered my questions if I had any questions regarding the building of the dock. At the end of the day, they left the area very clean. My neighbor’s were also very impressed and also decided to use them based on my experience. Thank you very much McKenzie Lake Works!

Rick McKenzie of McKenzie Lake Works installed a floating dock for me approximately 2 years ago. The workmanship and professionalism shown to me on this project was outstanding. The work was performed on schedule as promised and exactly to the specifications we had agreed upon. The crew was very neat and all clean up was done upon the completion on the job. The dock has held up and I could not be more satisfied.

McKenzie Lake Works did quite a few tasks for me this year: a great boat dock, metal building, fencing, and ran a water line. I was quite impressed with the work. He was very tentative always keeping me informed and doing what it took to satistfy me. Thanks Rick!
