In terms of the types of decks - we build rooftop decks, ground decks, backyard decks, second story decks, multi level decks, steel frame decks, pool and hot tub decks. We also build custom gazebos, cabanas, pergolas and custom sheds.
The Cost to Build a Deck: What to Expect
The price for a project depends on the scope of work. Our project minimum is $5000. A general rule of thumb - plan to spend about $80/sq. Ft. for a composite or an Ipe deck (this figure includes railings, screens, steps). For a custom shed/cabana - plan to spend about $100/sq. Ft. It is hard to give a more precise figure without obtaining the exact project requirements. You can always get in touch with us to set up a time for an in-home consultation or even get a ballpark figure for your project over the phone. The pricing depends on the materials chosen, the size of the deck, additional items such as railings, steps and site conditions.
What is Needed to Build a Deck?
To start deck construction in some cases you need a deck permit. Please check in with the city regarding this requirement for your project. You need to finalize your design and quote, and give a deposit on your project. We typically take 10% to lock in an installation date for our client. Following that - the deck company will take care of all the items relating to deck construction - starting with getting locates prior to doing installation of the deck footings. Following the completion of deck footings, the next stage is framing and then finishing. If the deck has a permit, the deck company would typically schedule the needed inspections and take care of all the interactions with the city officials.
Are deck permits included in the price?
The deck permits are priced as a separate line item on the quote. Our company is able to do deck permits in house because we have a full time BCIN designer on staff. The charge for the drawings varies, but typically falls within $1000-1500 price range. The city fees are not included in the quote and typically they range between $200-300. The client is responsible for the city fees. The permit applications are typically submitted by the deck company to the city.
The homeowner needs to sign some forms that accompany the deck permit application. The deck company typically handles all the communication with the city and our company designer acts as an applicant on the homeowners behalf. Should the permit not be granted due to zoning requirements or conservation requirements - there are additional fees for drawings and the homeowner may need to get more involved.
How long does it take to build a deck?
The time it takes to build a deck depends on several key factors relating to the project:
The overall size and budget of the job
Does the deck have a permit?
Are there any special order custom items? (i.e. rare color decking, custom railing, custom glass components, custom metal components)
To give you a rough idea, assume 1 week of construction for every $10,000 of the deck budget. Allow 3-4 weeks to have permit drawings prepared and permits issued. Add another week to the project after it starts if the project has a permit. If you have custom metal railing - expect to wait 3 weeks for its manufacture. Inquire right away about the materials you are choosing - are they readily available from the suppliers? If your contractor is short a few boards, how long would he have to wait to get them?
Composite Deckingmore decks
Rooftop Composite Decking
For rooftop decks we suggest going with PVC decking such as Fiberon Promenade series or Wolf - these are excellent quality PVC products at reasonable prices. PVC decking materials are a great choice for rooftop decks because they don’t absorb any moisture and do not heat up in the sun. For the same reason PVCs are also great for docks and decks around hot tubs and pools.
Backyard Composite Decking
For backyard decks - we suggest composite decking products such as Fiberon, Timbertech or Trex. Spending on the budget and the desired look, one of the products from these manufacturers would be a great choice for a backyard ground deck or a second storey deck.
When is Ipe deck better than Composite?
Ipe decks have an advantage over composite when a client is looking for a natural look and feel of the deck they walk on. Regardless of how real a plastic deck may look, it still feels and looks like plastic. Also, keep in mind that Ipe does not heat up as much as a PVC or a composite deck, so if that is an issue for you - go for a premium wood deck such as an Ipe deck.
When is Composite Deck Better Than an Ipe Deck?
A composite deck is better when the budget does not allow for an Ipe deck (entry level composites are about half price, but premium composites are more expensive than the Ipe). A composite deck is also better when the homeowners want to do little maintenance and they do not like the grey look of a weathered Ipe deck. If left untreated, Ipe deck will still last 40 plus years, but it will look grey. Weathered Ipe deck will have only minor cracks, if any, and will not deform. Some cleaning is needed on all deck types, you will have surface mold on any surface type, so expect to pressure wash your deck every few years regardless of the material type you choose.
