Home Deck Installation Cost


By ProMatcher Staff



The cost of building a home deck will depend upon a number of factors. For example, the average cost of deck installation is $16.21 per square foot for pressure treated pine (Range: $15.92 - $16.49). However, there are quite a few factors that go into determining the price. Take a look at our ProMatcher Home Deck Cost Report which will provide you some estimated prices in your local area.

Here are some items that will factor into the cost of your project:

Home Deck Installation Cost Factors

1. Size of the deck. The contractor will consider both the square footage and the height of the proposed deck. Working above ladder height requires additional equipment and manpower and will add to deck installation costs.

2. Are the house and the area where the deck is to be installed ready for construction? Removing siding and altering vents will add to the cost of deck installation. If the area where the deck is to be installed requires grading or the addition of weed barrier or gravel, the cost of deck installation may be higher.

3. What material are you going to use for the deck? Wood is less expensive than composite, but there are varying costs to each. Pressure treated pine is the least expensive wood, and redwood is the most expensive. Depending on your geographic location, cedar or cypress may be low cost wood options. All woods are “graded,” and a lower grade will cost less than a higher grade. Composites are also classified by longevity and will cost more if they are designed to last longer.

4. Does your deck design contain curves or varying angles? Decks whose designs consist of straight lines and right angles will cost less to install than designs with curves or varying angles.

5. Do you want the deck stained or sealed deck upon completion? You can lower the cost of deck installation if you stain or seal the deck yourself rather than having it done by the deck builder.
