We are looking for quotes to get a patio put into the back yard. The main patio is ~11ft x 12ft and it would carry on into the walk way to the fence which is ~3ft wide x 25 ft long.
The yard slopes downward from the rear parking pad towards the house though the last 10-12 ft before the house is reasonably flat.
We have a general layout in mind but are always open to suggestions and wisdom from the trenches. We are looking for a company / contractor with a history or portfolio of good designs and even better reference.
A detailed quote would be required, so we understand that a visit will be in order, though ball park estimates would be appropriated. If you can break it down by material tpye (i.e. paver style A = $XXXX +/- 25%, paver style B=$YYYY +/- 25% etc)
Right now we are only really interested in the back yard but if the price is right we may have the patio continue into a walk way beside the house around to the front.
We have built a new house (duplex) in Killarney and would like to do some landscaping in our backyard. We would like to build a deck with pressure treated wood (10'x12' in size) with one step up around the deck. Our backyard currently has only grass now and is a level site. Please let me know if this is a project you would be interested in and be able to quote for us.
I have a 6' wide by 34" long by 2'-21/2" high deck I need built. The deck floor will be composite boards and the face will be enclosed and ready for masonry (done by another contractor). The concrete stairs are already in place. The railings and posts are metal and will need to installed as well.
We are wanting to extend our deck and landscape the backyard. We have a plan already as to what we want to do but need to make sure it is doable and can get the permits for it. We want someone to come and look at the space and make sure our drawings and ideas will work and then do up a final plan and get the permits to do it. We are looking for someone to do up a professional deck plan with the layout and measurements, how many footings, etc...
Our backyard slopes so we are wanting to level it out and re-sod it, which we will end up needing an estimate for that job as I don't think it's something we can do ourselves. We are wanting to do the decking ourselves if possible. If the final deck plan ends up being more complicated then we are thinking, then we would need an estimate for the entire job. We were hoping to do the project last year but didn't have the money. We got a bonus this year so that is going towards the project! Yay!
We have a relatively new (built two years ago) 2 level cedar deck that needs finishing/refinishing. The upper portion was stained last summer but we're not happy with the finish or color. The lower level is bare cedar and has started to weather gray. Could you provide us with a quote to strip the deck down to the natural cedar and re-stain it? The total area is about 700sf.
Remove old wooden deck that is 7 x 10 ft. Get permit for new composite deck approx. 12 x 10.5 ft using Canyon Gray Armadill Lite decking with 12 in facia around deck. White aluminium rails.
Approx 7 steps to top of deck, black stringers either 32 or 36 inch wide steps with gate at the top. Dig 2 post holes imbedded in cement approx 2 to 3 ft deep. White cladding around the 2 6x6 posts. Job to be done anytime but prefer sooner the better. Require total cost in writing and start and completion dates.
I have a walkout basement and I am interested in pouring a concrete patio. The entire patio would be approximately 230 square feet, and is in an L shape. No preparation work has been done at this time, so it would need to be framed and prepped prior to concrete being poured. At this time I am looking for an estimate for the project, with hopes to engage a contractor prior to the end of August.
Thank you for your time.
We live in Scenic Acres area of Calgary and our home is 25 years old. The back deck is in need of replacement. It's approximately 8x8 in its current footprint and it has a roof that is partially supported by the roof and three pillars. This is an area of concern for us as the roof portion is on the shingles.
We are also looking to expand a lower level to the deck underneath our large kitchen window. The interesting thing here is that there is a garden under the large kitchen window which we suspect as acting as the insulation below the cupboards (in really cold weather you can feel how cold the kitchen floor gets). For this reason, we want to start the project in spring because we fear what lurks beneath this garden.
We are OK with using pressure treated lumber as the supporting beams, posts etc and would like to make some educated decisions about the use of cedar vs. composite materials for the deck. Our current front porch is cedar on top of PT lumber.
The concrete pour is to expand our driveway, add in a significant concrete area just inside the fence for bikes, garbage cans, storage, add in a pad or pillars for new deck (need help deciding which is best, and possibly even lift our hot tub and replace the half garden ties, half concrete pad there with a full concrete pad. So there is extensive concrete work or combination of concrete and stone work
Our plan then is as follows:
- Get some estimates and professional opinions - Fall 2011
- Dismantle the existing deck and remove shrubbery etc. - Fall 2011
- Remove garden below kitchen window - Spring 2012/early summer 2012
- Concrete pour - Spring/early Summer 2012
- Figure out how to fix under kitchen window - this might have to occur before concrete pour - Spring/early Summer 2012
- Replace deck with expanded deck as described above - Spring/early Summer 2012
I am bit of a do it yourself type of person so willing to do the dismantling and prep work but don't have time with young family to push through and complete the deck build on my own.
We're wanting to get 2 projects done. The first is getting our backyard/alley way door reconstructed, right now there are 2-doors that open outwards to the alley. We're wanting to make it a 1-piece, left-to-right sliding door.
The second one is to get our front-porch (approx 5'-L x 10'-W x 2'-H) remodeled, possibly with composite wood, cement/concrete pad or brick/stone.
Need to rebuild deck, that is elevated 4 to 5 feet. Would like to cover or enclose. Deck is approx. 9' by 14'. House is 40 years old.
Sidewalk is around the deck. Right now has 6 steps to get to deck from ground. Not sure if need permits. Preferred materials, depends on pricing.
We need to build a deck in Cranston area of following specifications:
Material: PT Wood
Width: 13 feet 6 inches.
Length: Around 13~14 feet
Height from ground: Around 2 feet Steps: Two steps to the ground and around 8 feet in length.
Gravel and Weed barrier underneath the low deck.
Please let me know the cost and approach towards the project.
I would like the contractor to abide by generally accepted principles of building prevalent in Calgary and no short cuts like lower than 4 feet deep pots, nails instead of screws etc.,
Would appreciate cost efficient and straight forward proposals.
I am currently looking for a price to build an 11'X20' deck as well as two gates and approx. 30' of wood fence. As I work in the home building industry, I would supply all the materials, I just need a framer. Please contact me to book an on site estimate or if you have a rough price, please forward.
Thank you in advance.
I have a bungalow built in 1951 that I would like to add a deck to, as well as converting part of the back yard to patio. The work would include turf removal , the creation of at least one flowerbed and the possible creation of a small retaining wall (the yard to the east of the site is on a downslope). I would prefer to have the deck made from cedar and the patio to be paving stone or brick. The appropriate grading and drainage would need to be built in to the plan as the back yard currently slopes slightly down in to the back of the house and I don't believe there is weeping tile in place there. The deck will be about 14 x 12 feet and the patio will be slightly larger. The patio will be hemmed in by the house (there is one basement window to deal with) the fence between my yard and the nieghbours, the garage and the deck.
I'm hoping to have the construction started as soon as possible and completed before the end of the month. I am flexible on the timing but would like to enjoy my new yard additions as much as possible before the cold weather comes .
We need a small deck built around our hot tub that was just installed. This would be created adjacent to an existing deck.
This would include some privacy fencing on two sides and probabably a pergola.
Partial step reconstruction from main deck and steps down to lawn on one octagonal side in the front.
Can provide a rough blue print of what we want but would love some onsite expert help with the design.
Treated wood for framing and possibly decking but would prefer composite decking depending on the price difference.
Framing including cement footings considered very important.
Roughly 182 square feet.
Would like this started as soon as possible.
We are looking to have a 16x20 foot deck built. We have a cement slab right outside our patio doors which covers a hole which used to be a separate entrance. We also have a stone patio where is looks as though the outside stones are cemented down. The patio door is only 17 inches above the ground so the deck would need to be low. Would love to hear what you can do as we really want to enjoy a patio this summer.
I am looking for someone who can build a deck with a reasonable price. I can donate my time to help cut some of the cost. I am working with Home Depot to get a quote for all items required so that I can avail an 18month instalment plan with no interest. Plan is as below:
1. Existing PT Decking to be replaced with Composite Decking (10' x 13')
2. New deck addition of 18' x 20' tied into old deck with 1 step down.
I would like to keep the frame for the existing deck which was built by the builder.
I have the plans drawn up which I can share upon request.
Deck is over concrete walkout patio. One corner of deck has sunk 2 to 3 inches.
The wood posts (2) are surrounded by the patio concrete and need replacing due to rot. Concrete has also sunk by about 2 to 3 inches and needs lifting or the gap filled.
I would like someone to determine and perform the correct fix for the post replacements. I don't know what type of pile is under the posts because they are covered by the concrete patio. The patio appears to have been poured around the wood posts. The work would probably involve coordinating with a mudjacking company.
I have other potential landscaping type work to be done depending on price but the deck is my priority.
Remove old deck (12'X10' approximate). About 4' - 5' high.
Build a new deck flat about 1.5' - 2' high with 2 dimensions (Left side = 12'X12', Right side 16'X12'). Obviously this will be 1 flat deck. A stair will be needed to get from door to deck.
I need a deck surface stripped and replaced with 3/4" plywood and new 65 mil vinyl covering. I also need the stairs replaced and would like to use steel stringers with composite treads. The stair mid way platform should be re-usable but does need one cross support board replaced. I would like to try and re-use the existing railing system if possible. Photos attached. The deck is approximately 410 square feet.
We have an approx 600sq ft cedar deck that we would like re-finished and stained. It is only 3 years old but the original stain coat was not applied properly and flaked off the spring following application. Over the past 2 years the deck has grayed with UV exposure. We would like to return it back to its original cedar colour and then apply a clear coat. Deck has no rails and limited steps. No benches. It is pretty straight forward.
