Looking for a ballpark on this deck. Probably needs to be taken down and rebuilt. It wobbles. Approx. 10 by 10. Potentially extend a few feet.

I will be looking for proper estimates in the future but need some sort of idea how much this could cost.

Hi Mary,

Just built one similar to this two years ago approx. 12 x 12 in cedar this will be approx. $ 12k +/- if you want maintenance free composite with metal railings your probably looking at around $ 18k +/-.

I do not build whole decks with Pressure treated lumber anymore (does not last). Should only be used for un-exposed framing members.

A basic Presure treated 10x10 low deck would be in the$4,000 range, in composite $5,000 to $6,000, a high deck would be about $1,000 extra. Hope this helps for budgeting. Lots of options to raise or lower.

We would charge about $3800.00 for a P.T. deck of that size.

Ball park for the upper and lower in PT around $12,000.

Beware of quotes that are not in that range.

This deck with helical screw piles, pressure treated lumber, pressure treated railing, stairs, skirt etc. Basically built to match existing. About $7000. Plus $2000 to tear down existing.
