I need a deck built in a back yard. It is approximately 16 X 14. There will need to be 3 steps built from the patio, to the deck and then 4 more from the deck to the ground level. I Haven't decided on pressure treated or cedar and I beleive a permit will be needed. I have been to Home Depot, and according to the drawings, 6 footings will have ot be poored. There is a deck there right now, it is just not functional for the back yard.
I am looking to have a deck built 20 ft wide by 10 ft deep and approx. 15in to 18in off the ground. I want it made of pressure treated wood. I do not want it attached to the house (possible use of Deck Blocks). There is a patio door from the house to the deck. The deck will cover along the back of the house (the house is approximately 21ft 8in wide) and centered. The land where the deck is to be placed is flat. I would like to have a 4 foot wide step from the deck to the ground and railings across the front of the deck and privacy on the 2 sides.
My deck has stairs going down to the grass. City of Barrie has said that we have to fix one stair that's one inch too high.
The stairway is in two parts, down 6 stairs, turn and down another 6 or so stairs. The faulty stair is where the first 6 stairs down meet the little platform to turn.
I don't know if it can be repaired or if the top 6 steps unit will have to be replaced.
Also the bottom 6 stairs have to be secured where they meet the grass.
Our house has been sold and closes in a few weeks and I'd like to get this done pretty well immediately. I have photos I can send by email.

We recently had a small addition and stairs built on to our existing deck. Unfortunately, we have run into some problems and the builder is now of course difficult to get a hold of. We have found out that even though the builder told us we didn't need a permit, we actually did need one, and are in the process of trying to get the permit now, which is proving difficult since they need a lot of detail and we aren't sure how to fill in all of the information. Through phone calls to the building department at city hall, we found out that the stairs are not to code in many aspects, and now we fear the safety of the addition as well as the stairs. The existing deck and addition and stairs are all wood, with rod spindles/balusters, the existing deck was built in 2004 and did have a permit. The aspects of the stairs that we have been told are not up to code are : the use of deck boards rather than thicker pieces for the stairs, not enough stringers for sufficient support (there are only two that are 3.5 feet apart, I'm told the stair width can only be 2 ft 10 inches, and that stringers need to be a maximum of 16 inches apart), the rise of stair is too steep, the run is too short, the overhang on the steps is 2 inches rather than 1 inch, and the gate at the top of the stairs, though "repaired" once, is still not functioning properly.
We would love to have estimates done on how much it would cost to fix the staircase, and addition if necessary, so that it is up to code, and SAFE for my family, which includes many children (our own plus neices, nephews, etc.)
We live in a brand new home and are looking for quotes for a fence and deck project. We have a walk out basement so the deck is approximately 8-10 feet above grade. It will span the width of the house (approx 35ft) and be about 16ft deep with a railing and staircase. The fence will enclose the back yard. We are very interested in composite decking and vinyl fence that will ensure long term beauty.
We are open to creative ideas as well.
Length of above ground pool 28 feet long by 12 feet /down one side 6 ft by 4ft. in back yard not attached to house at all self standing. I have 400 sq feet of composite which I would like to use. I will need railing gate and skirting just in pressure treated would prefer contractor to order this material.
I have a low deck (just about 18" off the ground) that I want extended about 10' in one direction and about 3' in the other.
In addition I need privacy lattice and a coupe of posts to give a tenant their own little private part of this deck. Hoping to get it done in May so the tenant can begin enjoying their space.
We need our deck to be extended by about 3 feet and placed against an above pool. Total extension roughly 30 SQ/F with the addition of a step to access the pool. We also have a hut tub 3 feet apart from the pool, the deck will need to be extended between bot the pool and the hot tub (about 20 SQ/F). All supply will be provided to contractor. We can email picture if required.
Replacing ground level deck, step and railings.(prefer wrought iron spindles) Deck is approximately 15' by 22'With pergola top on one side. Install new front and side doors with screen doors. Build side door overhang with posts. Build small front deck approximately 6' X 12'.
Remove the old drop ceiling and dispose of it
FIRE RATED drywall on 10 x 10 ceiling (one ceiling light)
Install sound barrier and insulation
Tape and mud all joints to be ready for me to paint.
Require two railings on side of stairs leading from deck to back yard....there are five stairs.
Our front porch is under one of the rooms in our house. The corner of the porch which has the support to the upper room has cracked and the brick work is crumbling. We would like a quote on replacing the support with a steel post.
Call me to schedule a date to have a peak at this issue.
10'-0" wide approx. 20'-0" long deck. No railing or staires required. Just a flat deck. Outside ground level is approx. 18" lower than finished floor level of our house. As per my understanding the deck has to be raised approx 9" to 12" from the ground level.
I'm looking for a 10X12 deck with 2 steps down to the lawn. I would like a quote with the option for composite as well as Pressure treated. I would like the steps to go around all three sides.
I need a new privacy fence on 3 sides of my lot. 70' on each side and 90' on the back, with no gates. Please quote with 5' posts.
The deck is to be free-standing but located off the back entrance garden door. Deck measurements will be approximately 14 1/2 feet along the house by 10 feet out from the house but we would like a 45 degree angle beginning about 6 feet from the house to allow easier access to the rear yard from the narrow side yard. The overhead view appears as half an octagon.
The square footage is to be approximately 120.
We would like to receive prices on a maintenance free project and a price for pressure treated materials beneath a cedar deck with cedar railings.
We are in possession of our builder's survey and grading plan and we purchased our own real property survey immediately after our September 2010 new home purchase.
The City of Barrie advises that we will require an up-to-date BCIN deck design for the building permit.
Wooden deck of approximately 55 foot length and 12 foot width at one end, 4 and a half at other, is one storey above ground (walkout below). Will require 1 gate for access. Also stairways leading to ground level, a second smaller deck area concrete based, smaller third deck and stairs of wood- all require new railings. Uncertain at this time as to what material to use, looking for suggestions from experienced builders/designers- wood and metal? something else, not all wood though. Really think you need to see this to get an idea of what you are looking at. Would appreciate competitive quotes. Must be done by fall 2016.
Thank you. I am the owner of this property.
I have a 12year old cedar deck around my pool, very large flat deck, also have hardwood deck at back entrance, 3 steps around the entire 16x 10' nether deck has a railing. I am selling and would like to improve the look as it has some old semi paint on it. Any suggestions as to time and cost ?
I have a porch in front of my house, just as you exit through the main door. The size would be 57 inches in width and 61 inches in length. It is only a 2 wall requirement as the other two are, brick garage and brick house which includes the main entrance into the house. The door would be on the 57 inch i.e. the width of the sun porch.
I would like to find out how much would it be for a project like that to be installed and how much would it be just for the material if I wanted and had time to install it myself.
