What is a reasonable cost for a small backyard deck?


Answer by  thelostone (1457)

It really depends on the size and if you are doing it yourself or not. TO do it yourself you can build a small deck for 3-500 dollars. A contractor will normally cost you about 3 to 5 times what you can do it yourself for so around 1000 to 2500 dollars for a simple deck.

Contrary to what many people think, a backyard deck is not very expensive. Depending on the kind of it may cost from as little as $3,000 US Dollars to as much as $10,000 US Dollars.

An average small deck cost under $500. Take into account the dimensions, permits you may need, and labor for your backyard deck when pricing.

A reasonable cost for a small backyard deck can vary quite a bit. You can spend between $25-$35 per square foot for a wood deck. At $25 per square foot, a 80 square foot deck would cost $2000.

The cost of a deck is contingent on many things including the type of material used, size, and any features (hand rails, steps, etc.). For a 10' by 10' deck with a few steps and no banister, made of treated lumber, you should expect to spend about $5,000.

No more than one thousand dollars if you choose to do it yourself, maybe even as low as 450 dollars. If you choose to hire someone, $1,500.

This depends on the size of a small deck, the materials you want to use, and the foundation the deck will go on. A basic estimate for a small deck big enough for a grill and small card table and a guardrail would be about $600-$1000. If you do it yourself it will be cheaper but more time consuming.

If you are having someone else do the work you have to pay them for thier time and skill, if they make fine art. The materials should not cost over a grand unless its a giant deck though.

A reasonable cost for a small back yard deck such as a 10x12 would be around five hundred dollars. The actual cost will depend on type of lumber used.

A good price from a licenced contractor would be twentyfive dollers a square foot any more and you should call someone else.

It depends on if you do it yourself or hire a contractor. Obviously a contractor will make it more expensive.
