We would like to build a deck in our backyard. Currently there is only stones on the ground back there. We would be interested in using composite wood or other long lasting wood products. The area is about 20 x 12 feet or so (want to cover the area where the existing stones are) and runs almost the length of the back of the house.
We have a deck we would like build.
I removed the old one and installed a temporary 5X5. We would like the new one to incorporate the patio that we have the new deck would come out 6' from the edge off the house to approximately 20' wide to the patio.
At the center of point of the width we can expand out as far as 16'
(I'm sure at this point your arms went up in the air .......what??????)
We live in the north end of Guelph and would like this to be completed by the beginning of May.
I'm looking to tear down our old deck, and replace it with a new deck that would be about 12 feet off the ground (level with main floor), and about 12'x35' in size. Stairs would then lead from the deck, down to the ground level (basement walkout), where a concrete patio would be built. The patio would be appropriately the same dimensions as the deck. I have not decided on what materials to use, but would like to price out pressure treated, cedar, and composite rough estimates.
Hi there. Looking to get a quote for a raised deck (~4' off the ground) approximately 20'x20' with 2 levels. I already have all of the wood.
Also looking to have a 5' sliding door installed in place of an existing 3' window stepping out onto the deck. The idea for the deck is to step straight out on to a 10' x 6'ish level, then one step down to the rest, then ~3 steps down to the yard.
Thanks very much in advance!
We are looking to have a deck built. Our home is on a walkout lot in the south end of Guelph and the house was built by Pidel 3 1/2 years ago. The house is quite high, our basement has 11ft ceilings.
Would like to have the deck the full width of the house. The house is approx 30ft wide at the back and we would like the deck to go 12 - 14ft out from the house, with stairs going down to the ground.
We would like to have a couple of quotes soon, so that we can get the deck started as soon as the weather permits.
Looking to bulid a deck at my new house. This house is a walkout. I would like to deck to extend the width of the house, 30ft and a lenght of 12 - 15ft. (not sure yet how long I want it) Would like the decking to be composite deck boards, with glass inserts, instead of the wood spindles.
Open to any ideas you would have.
Thanks for your time
We want to remove the old wooden boards on our deck and replace with weather proof, non- wooden, boards. The deck is about 10' 3" x 15' 6". There are two steps that are leading down from the deck to the yard that will also need to be replaced (4'11" X 11"). the railing also needs to be sanded and repainted but we're most interested in the cost of replacing the floor.
I am looking for someone that can finish my 20 by 22 deck (4 feet High).
The only things left to do are:
Deck floor boards
Fill one hole post
I have all the materials.
Would like to have this done by this Friday at the latest.
Thank you very much
We have a few exterior projects that we would like to have some help with.
Front of the house:
The steps to our front porch are sinking and falling apart. They are dangerous, uneven and not to code. We are looking to have those replaced as well as the walkway leading up to the front door.
Our front porch is a small concrete block and has one of those glass enclosures attached. If we are replacing the steps and walkway leading to the front porch, ideally I'd like to remove the enclosure and extend the front porch as well.
Back of house:
We have a deck in the backyard that runs along half of the house. It sits about 2-3 ft above the ground. Many of the deck boards are beginning to rot. We would like to extend the deck across the length of the house and replace the deck boards, stairs and railings.
I would like a deck built outside my back patio door. Basic specs are as follows:
- 11' deep x 15' wide (house wall)
- approximate height from ground is 18"
- pressure-treated wood
- one 4' wide stair with 2 steps
Design input requested for additional finishing:
- 3' railings & pickets for all 3 sides minus step area (33 linear ft).
- one 11' side is currently bordered with tall cedar bushes, so rails may not be needed there?
- suggestions to provide privacy from a cul-de-sac road out back... maybe a lattice-type privacy screen above part of the railing? Or would a different treatment other than a railing for that part of the deck be better?
I realize railings and pickets aren't even necessary by law at this height, but with small grandchildren, I need to consider them for safety.
I own an end unit townhouse on land-leased property (Village by the Arboretum in Guelph), so approval from management is necessary. They will need drawings showing a few different perspectives. There won't be any problem getting approval, but the process must be followed. Once I choose the contractor and we agree on the drawings, I'll go through the approval process with management, which takes about 2 weeks I'm told.
Just for information, ground is currently covered with patio slabs that could be left untouched unless they're in the way.
I am looking for the best price for an outdoor deck exactly 2 feet from the ground with railings included. Also, could you please price a deck at 4 feet with the same dimensions below,
I am looking at the size of 10 feet length and 16 feet width.
Also, wondering if you could do any type of designs with this and if you have any pictures you could send that would be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much,
I am looking for a contractor to construct a deck (plan attached) as soon as possible. The deck size is according to the plan size and it is 4 feet from the ground. I am looking at having Brown treated pressure wood and other details are on the plan.
Thank you so much,
We have an exsisting deck and want to a have a lower level deck just above and no railing, the ground 6 to 7 feet wide and 21 to 22 feet long. No stairs, and use pressure treated wood. I have now posted some pictures to give a better idea of the area. Now the lower will need posts cemented I asume 4ft into the ground. Also the pergola that we want is more like 11x11 to replace the one in the photo below. In the 4th photo the corner of the main deck and the above ground pool , the lower deck would be nice if it was closer to the pool and it could just be a straight angle to the pool instead of curving with the pool.
Deck in "L" shape one level. First section 10 X 18 attached to house, second section 10 X 25 in front of last. Deck to be closed in with fence planks underneath. Deck to have custom metal railing installed by others. Railing requires blocking every 4ft. Three steps to grade required with steps 4ft wide at end of 18ft section. Deck to be built with building permit up to installation of railing. New house in subdivision, easy entry to backyard, grade slopes gently away from hosue.
I have a wood post on my front porch that is all rotted at the bottom. The wood appears to be sitting directly on the concrete porch. I believe the post is holding some weight of the front of the roof and is not just cosmetic. We are open to ideas on how to best replace or repair this post because we are afraid it's going to fall down with all the rotted wood at the bottom.
I have an old rotted out set of stairs (approx 12 ft run) in my backyard. The backyard has a significant hill that requires steps to access the back 3/4 of the backyard. The previous owners have let the back to it's own devices and as a result much of it has not been maintained. I have a feeling this is due to the rotted out stairs and lack of accessibility. The stairs are currently quite close to the ground, which has likely contributed to a good part of the rot. I'm currently seeking quotes for 2 options so I can start working on our backyard:
1)Removal and replacement of existing stairs, including railings on both sides.
2)In addition to above, having a landing going off the existing deck to access the backyard stairs that way instead.
Looking for an experienced builder to install a 13 1/4' x 15' 'deck', ground level. Want to avoid a city permit requirement, if possible,to keep the process simple. We have a condo board to deal with. This measurement fills a space that is enclosed with a fence and the house on the 15' sides, the house (patio doors) on the one 13 1/4' side, and open on the other 13 1/4' side - would like a gate installed on the open side - 7-ft piece of fence of which 3-ft will be a gate.
The ground level request would result in a platform with the decking installed on a 45 degree angle ending about 16" below the patio door exit to the deck - will require a couple of steps built leading down from the patio door to the deck.
Could use existing fence as anchor on one side, would prefer to not have to use the house as an anchor but not at expense of the platform potentially shifting if not anchored on both sides.
Went to Home Depot and had this designed with MicroPro Sienna Treated Wood being the raw material quoted. Have an idea of what we'd like to spend and are looking for a qualified builder who would like this one day job in Guelph.
Small addition/reno to deck. IT's not a big job, but the deck is built over the only window in my basement which creates a safety issue. The deck is approximately 8 years old, pressure treated wood and in good condition. Requires removal of a small section of the original deck in order to expose the basement window. Also the removal of a privacy screen to be replaced with a regular railing and finally the addition of a smaller lower level (approxmately 8X10). I would prefer completion as soon as possible.
looking for an experienced landscaper to do the following job.
I have a stone 12X20 patio that was put in by the previous owner, and its starting to shift. I would like someone to rip this up, and put it down completely (using the same stone). I also have a weed issue with this patio, so there needs to be some type of barrier put underneath as well. It will be put down in the same shape as it is now except for one minor change that will shorten it. As mentioned the same stone will be used.
Also, I have stone front steps that I would like to be replaced with wood steps.
If you are interested in this job please email me back with a rough estimate - only those that reply with a rough figure will get a response. If you need any more info please let me know. (located south end of guelph).
Looking to have a two level deck installed (lag bolted to house with ledger board) Approx 16 feet by 12 feet with an angled corner on both levels. Hoping to discuss what to do with basement window that is in the way.
Are happy to put in deck boards ourselves, just need help with digging, setting, joists etc. If there isn't much savings for us doing the boards ourselves, then we definitely don't need to.
Please let us know if you're able to come out for a quote.
