depends on what you're going to build it out of, if you're doing the work yourself or hiring someone .......

most importantly read VIP's link above

It should be somewhere between free (if you steal all the materials and do the work yourself) and a butt-load.

I hope this helps.

Andy.

The only way you'll know how much it costs is to call a few contractors and get some bids.

How much do you have budgeted? It's helpful for the builder to know how much you want to spend, you may want the largest nicest deck but only have the budget for a mediocre deck with minimal upgrades. Nothing bothers me more than "I don't really have a budget but this is what I want" "Ok, that'll be somewhere in between $90,000- $120,000" "Wow... I only had $30,000 budgeted"... Hmmm... that kind of information would have been helpful earlier.

A REPUTABLE company that specializes in decks is not going to "screw you over". I have people tell me all the time what they've budgeted and I try to design something to fit the budget.

Dear iamhomer,
This forum is dedicated to "Do It Youself'ers" meaning that you are going to attempt to undertake the work "yourself".
We are really good at advising what materials and methods to use in a specific situation when you are doing it "yourself". We make the assumption [right or wrong] that you know a little of what you are doing.

Pricing something is contingent upon the cost of materials used, the cost of labor and the codes that prevail in your area.
Contacting three or more local deck contractors or deck builders will give you a good idea of the cost.
If you decide you have the aptitude to take the project on with your own hands.....we are here to guide you.

Regarding those of us that you consider "smart"......yep.......that we are.
Sometimes we see the humor in things that some don't. I don't think anyone here intended to hurt your feelings.........just our way of pointing out the things that are obvious to us.

Mike
