Labour only cost to install a 11x 21' deck, free standing on 3 beams 2' off grade including a small 3 x 7' stoop 2 steps high on top of deck to access a door. Also want to install 20' of wood ballister railing and 20' of wrap around stairs 2 steps high. Also want to install a 13' x 6' basic pergola over a section of the deck.

I'm getting quotes between 6 - $9000.00 for labour and don't know what's reasonable.

I live in Edmonton, AB.

Hi Jim,

Without have a set plan to look at I would suggest labour cost going roughly between 5500 - 7400 . Whoever you choose make sure everything is done with written documentation.

I hope this helps out with your decision.

Without knowing site conditions or a plan, its impossible to say what is fair.

You will always get variances in estimates. Some companies have more overhead and some guys are more detail oriented.

Get some quotes, establish a budget and pick someone you are comfortable with. Ask for references and see previous work if you can.

Money should always be a consideration, but never a deciding factor.

Sometimes the cheapest price is the most expensive mistake.
