If I supply the lumber, what should it cost in just labor to frame a deck and a fence in Calgary? I'm not sure about the deck size yet so I'm just wondering if it is per square foot or how a contractor would calculate it?

I would charge a sf rate to most customer's, or looking for a contractor to come in for an hourly wage would run you $45 to $80 an hour.

Most fence guys charge by the section. I'm not from Calgary so the rates may be different out there than Ontario.

Good luck.

Hi Nick,

I'm with Jason. You are either looking at an hourly charge of around $60 an hour or a square foot charge of $13-$16.

7 to 13 a square, depending on material and style.

I can't give you A cost in Calgary. Sorry.

Here you are looking for about 45 per square foot for good quality work. That is material in if using P.T.

Here the labor would be about 60.00 to 80.00 per hour for good quality work.

Not sure what the going rate in Calgary is, we only do work in Winnipeg. Here the starting price for deck is about $10 per square foot for labor, fence about $25 per linear foot for labor and post setting.
