if you want a price, call a contractor in your area to come out and look at the deck.. many things can affect how much the price is.. the method the decking was fastened with be it nails or screws.. . how many questions you ask which will drive the rate up more

As stated your going to have to get some local pricing.
People on this site could be from any place in the world.
Make sure that add more floor joist if there more then 16" apart and only use stainless steel or ceramic coated decking screws.
Get ready for sticker shock when you get the price.
If you go on the Timber Tec web site there's a deck design area there that will also allow you to print out a material list.

Thank you for posting your question on the DIY Chatroom.

Questions involving pricing, such as – “How Much” certain projects cost – cannot be properly answered simply by information posted on an internet forum (regardless of how much information is supplied in a particular post).

- Pricing for materials may be determined at your local supplier(s).

- Prices for subcontracted work are best determined by getting legitimate local contractors to submit written estimates (3 are suggested) and always checking references.

We encourage you to post DIY (Do It Yourself) related questions on this site, rather than "How Much Will it Cost Me To Pay Someone....." questions - as that is not what this site is about.
- Build Well -
