Avg cost for...


Can anyone tell me what the average cost per square foot is for:

1) Concrete

2) Pavers

3) Stamped Concrete

4) Treated Wod

5) Trex, other other type of synthetic wood

I need to have my deck repleced and am trying to determine what material I need to focus on. I have called a couple of companies, but I only get answering machines with no return calls.

Thanks in advance for all replies.

Would this be the average cost for Washington DC., LA Ca., NY NY, or maybe in the UK. I don't know the pricing accross the pond.
You need to narrow this question down.

If it is for a normal deck, you have only two choices - Treated wood and synthetic. For initial cost, treated wood is the cheapest.

If it is for a patio on grade concrete is the cheapest. If you are after something more attractive, the price difference between stamped concrete and pavers would depend on the shape, size and appearance desired.

That really tells you little if you are looking at a specific application, what is acceptable for appearance and whether or not you are considering the initial cost or the value added to the home.

Cheapest is not always the cheapest in the end.

My deck can easily be transformed into a patio. I am not sure why the deck was built instead of a patio to begin with, but I magine it is because of cost...

A composite deck will run you about $30-35/sq. ft. 1/6 labor, 1/3 materials, 1/2 profit.

Thanks for the info. I had no idea that the composite deck cost so much! I am crossing that off of my list.
