Screened porch & deck

I'm considering having a deck and screened porch built, replacing my existing deck. The dimensions of the new deck would be 16'x30' (without the porch). The screened porch would be 16'x25' in size.

I am wondering what I can expect as a cost /sq. ft for the deck and the porch. Just ballpark for budget purposes.

No one's going to be pricing anything. It's a DIY site. Need help building it were right there with you.

A guess from any website on line is never ever going to be right fom anyone.
A ball park figure would do you 0 good even of someone threw one out there.

There are way way to many variable for us to give any sort of decent idea of a ballpark price.
Materials, location, style, finishes all determine cost.
Need someone local to give you a price.

It's like saying what does a car cost? Cold be free or $500,000 depending on the car

Are you planning on building it yourself?

If yes, you may want to budget for structural engineer to get his/her stamp of approval to to confirm that your deck framing structure can handle the roof load (it is required in my town).
