Looking to build a small'ish 2nd story deck with stairs. We don't actually need the deck but do want stairs from the kitchen (2nd floor) to the backyard. The main level of house will soon be inaccessible hence the need. I do have babies so think that just a stair case to the ground level is dangerous without some form of deck with gate at stairs and/or a landing half way down as well in the stairs. Backyard is 18 wide x 22 deep.
I have a balcony/ porch that used to go across the front of the second story of my house; it was torn down last spring. Access to the porch is from a sliding door off the kitchen on the 2nd floor. New porch dimensions: 30' long broken into 2 sections = Portion by the sliding door is 10' long by 18' wide and the rest is 20' x 12' wide. This creates one straight line across the front. I am considering either glass panels for the safety sides/ front or traditional wood railing.
There is some of the existing / old porch that will need to come down if not used for “support”.
There is also a porch on the 3rd floor that will need to "fixed" as bottom rail too far off "floor" to comply with by-laws. This should be quoted separately, but as part of the same job.
I live in Kipling and Lakeshore area. Would it be possible to please get an approximate idea of what it might cost to rebuild?
We would like to build a ground level deck in our back yard.
The area is - 22 x 16 ft. This area is covered with patio stones currently and we would like to build over it.
Not a raised deck as we do not have a walk out from the house.
To avoid maintenance, we were considering composite decking. However, if you have any other suggestions that would be cost effective, they would be welcome.
We would like to start this project this fall, 2013 around mid-October.
In a section of our backyard, behind the garage, there is a parcel of land, 14' x 13', that we would like to convert into a deck, with surrounding wood fences. There is a pear tree in the middle of it that we would like to keep as it provides a nice shade during the summer months. The catch 22 on this project is that the previous owners buried some of their garbage in the soil during the Toronto garbage strike back in 2009. It is visible at 8 or 10 inches deep.
We need advise on how to proceed and also cost related to the project. I like the idea of wood tiles, but any other flooring suggestions are welcomed. I understand that in order to build a deck or any type of patio floor, the area needs to be leveled and I assume this needs to be done by pouring concrete on top of the soil... What should we do about the garbage? leave it or take it out. We don't know how much is in there.
Thanks for your help ~

the home is a Victorian home, over 100 yrs old. we would like to (a) take down the disfunctional garage, and put up a car port + a garage door that rolls up. (b) there is a door leading to the basement that is not being used currently. the path that leads to the door from the back is on a diagonal made of concrete and is not user friendly. On top of this walkway is a small pond which we would like to remove to make more space for the patio. we are looking to find out how much the removal and reno on these areas would cost.
Planning to build a deck off of the back of my house, approximately 12X10 feet, 2 feet off of the ground, with wide steps down into the yard, plus a long planter box incorporated on one side wall approximately 7 feet in length. I will provide would supplies. Need a quote for labour including any of the other associated materials besides the actual lumber ( ie. concrete for footings).
Want the job to be completed in the space of 5 days, the window for the work is flexible.
Hi, we're looking to build a deck over a "pit".
At the back of our house is a wooden 'retaining wall' built up using 8x8s (I think) and beyond it our property slopes down to the neighbour's yard where there's 4' high cinder block concrete wall. On the cinder block wall is a 10' high wooden fence (I'm guesstimating that height).
What we'd like to do is put a deck over the "pit" to reclaim the space. We are not contemplating putting a retaining wall up and filling in the new space unless the cost is less than twice that of building up a deck. But the latter option is doubtful given the quotes we got on a retaining wall a few years ago.
The deck would be roughly 19' wide and 7' deep. The drop from the top of the wooden retaining wall to the top of the cinder block wall is 4'.
The neighbours did something similar 5 years ago and we've seen no evidence of collapse or erosion in the five years so we're prepared to do the same.
Some other minor carpentry tasks would also be needed around the backyard to make the place toddler-proof but they shouldn't take more than 4 hours.
This is a very simple, quick and easy job, I would do it myself if I had more time : )
2 replacement decks needed off the second floor of an old downtown Toronto house.
Decks were originally built over top of existing roof structures. The wood was removed last summer and the roof sheeting material has been re-laid.
I'm now looking for a carpenter to build only the decking and railing. This will be laid directly on the roof areas so no support structures are needed.
Front deck = 138" x 88" square with cut corners (the front corners are cut at an angle. It's 79" across front, 58" down the angled part, then 39" back to the house)
- "roof" surface lower than door threshold by 18"
Back deck = 122" x 88" square.
- "roof" surface lower than door threshold by only 3", and it angles down and away to 5 or 6 inches. The roof is angled for drainage.
I can email a drawing if needed.
Please give an estimate for time and materials using standard pressure treated lumber. I am available to meet on-site for an accurate quote weekdays anytime after 6pm and also on weekends.
Please call to set-up appointment. Dufferin Grove area (College/Dufferin).
We want to replace our existing deck with a new bigger one. Approximate size 24'x 16'. It is about 5'-6' above the ground. The design is just rectangular. I want it done in pressure treated or cedar. We need the stairs to lead to the backyard about 6-7 stringers. Railings can be wood with black balusters.
We are downtown church and need a pad carved into the side of our building and pad poured for a urgently needed storage shed. We also have a back stairway that lends itself to a hangout and we need this blocked off with railing built and door for access from inside to outside only.
Would like two individual prices because depending on cost they may have to budgeted separately. As with any old century downtown building though we can guarantee much more work for the contractor with great work and pricing (plus our 400 members all need work done and like to use ppl we trust)
The top area is 8' x 10' for a total of 80 square feet
The 4 stairs down to the driveway are 4' wideby 1' wide, they are 7/12, the stairs are to be single slabs.
The landing is 4' x 5' for a total of 20 square feet.
The stair down to the driveway is 4' long, 7 inches high, by 1' wide, the stair here once again is to be a single slab.
My budget is a maximum of $3,000 including all labour, materials and taxes.
The top of the porch is six inches thick and will be cladded in the matching stone. The area to be cladded is 13 lineal feet.
Type S cement and sand to be used.
The project is ready to go and I expect to tender it in the next week.
Please email quotes. If you cannot give a price, I will not contact you.
How much should it cost me in Toronto to get an existing stone patio extended (area to be done is 20' X 11.3). And what is the most cost effective method of achieving this: poured concrete, or patio stones, or matching the existing stones that are there? I know matching what's existing will look better, but I want to do what's most cost effective? Also can it be done this time of year (temps in Toronto are still pretty good right now).
I am the property owner. I am going to construct an deck and a detached garage in my backyard, and an alteration to my roof to extend to my porch and the new deck. I have received a building permit and permission from the city for the projects. The projects are ready to proceed as soon as I find a contractor.
All measures and sizes can be found in the blueprints, which I have included below.
All interested parties may contact me with an estimate. My preferred method of communication is by phone. If interested, please contact me.
Semi-detached house is approx. 60 years old. Solid brick with angel brick facade on front of house. Extensive renovations to interior were completed in past 4 years. Front porch, steps, walkway, alley way, and yard require replacing/updating. There is a water meter in front of the porch and a fire hydrant in the front yard. Wish to move Water Meter from front to side of house. Alley way between neighboring house collects water - wish to look at appropriate measures for proper rain water off. Front walkway is paved concrete with intermittent steps toward sidewalk. Would like to consider replacing with flat path of flagstone. Would like some landscaping of front yard with consideration to install low 4 foot fence around the property. Porch, steps, water meter, side alley, and walkway to sidewalk are the major priorities. Would like some design recommendations to add curb appeal to the house.
I have an old deck that probably needs replacing. It has shifted towards the back a few inches, so I think its a total teardown as it might become unsafe with time. Basically I want to replace it with something similar, including gazebo using either composite of cedar materials. Please email me a rough estimate of what it would cost to tear down and build a new deck, gazebo. Gazebo is 18' x 18', the rest of the deck is 36' long by about 12' wide, with stairs going down to the side. Price with cedar and composite seperately.
I need a small fence aprox 9ft wide and 6ft tall between a shed and the corner of the house.I also need a deck to be built in the rear of the house aprox width 9ft ,the length as yet to be determined.i would prefer cedar but understand costs therefore i will require a quote in both cedar and pressure treated wood.
We are looking to have a deck built in the backyard of a 1960's semi-detached house we just moved into. The backyard is approximately 16 by 30 feet, 3/4 soil and 1/4ashphalt and I would like to have a deck approximately 16 feet by 14 feet covering the ashphalt and sticking out about 4 feet over the soil/dirt. The ashphalt is an extension of the drive way and is right up against the house. I'd like the deck to be one step up (so maybe 6 inches to 1 foot off of the ground). It's kind of a blank slate at the moment as there is no garden or grass to work around.
We are also looking to build a fence along the side of the yard, approximately 20 feet long, and a fence along the end of the yard (approximately 16 feet long). Looking for prices for deck alone and deck and fences together. In terms of materials, we are on a bit of a budget and would like to spend $3000 or less for deck and fence together, if this is possible. We're also looking for something as soon as possible - I know this is probably the worst time of year as it is probably very busy, but before August if possible.
Deck off back of house needs to be replaced and extended three feet so that it is 16 feet wide by 18 feet deep. There is a set of 3 steps down to the lawn - about 8 feet wide. A second set of stps leads to the side of the house - 3 steps about 3 feet wide.
Fences along 2 sides of the back yard need to be replaced. One fencee covers the deck area only and is 18 feet long by 6 feet tall. the other side covers the deck at 6 feet high - then extends off either direction scaled down to 4 feet for 50 feet.
I want someone to build a deck for me. Here are the details
1. 3 steps down the glass door
2. 10' X 24' square
3. Steps at the end to the yard
4. Material: Cedar + reiling +mesh for under neath ==> i will provide them
I need a quote only on labor and design(design is pretty simple as i just described).
My house has an elevated deck about 26 inches above ground, has existing posts. Need a new deck about 550 square feet, pressure treated preferred.it is in a L shaped configuration
The dimensions are 25 ft X 12 feet on the vertical and the22 X 10 feet on the horizontal side.
I will like 4 steps to the ground 9 feet wide and about 18 inches deep.
Can you estimate about how much it will cost.
Railings are 20 ft on the vertical side and about 22 feet on the horizontal L, can be wood or metal
