The cost to build a deck depends on the size and materials you choose, as well as additional labor such as removing your existing decking. The total cost can be between $10,000 and $15,000*, including materials and labor.
Types of wooden decking
Redwood and cedar
Popular due to their beautiful color and durability, redwood and cedar decking can cost around $7 to $10* per square foot.
Pressure-treated wood is easy to install and, as the name suggests, treated to resist insect damage and rot. At around $5* per square foot, it is perfect if you’re on a budget, but you will need to clean it and apply paint or stain every few years.
These types of wood are harder and more durable than others. However, they require additional labor and often have to be imported. Premium options such as ipe – also known as Brazilian walnut – can cost between $10 and $20* per square foot.
