There is no certain way to determine the cost of installing a deck without first assessing the location and the size of the deck itself. The level on which the deck is supposed to be built will also affect the cost. If you want to have a deck in a flat field, that will be much less expensive than building one on a slope. In addition, the cost is dependent on the materials used as well as the quality of the deck contractors you employ to do the job. More experienced contractors will ask for more money but will definitely do a better job. The same goes for materials. High quality hardwood or concrete decks are bound to cost more than simple decks. Using quality materials, however, is highly recommended as they will make your deck last longer.
As a general rule of thumb, the average cost of a deck installation is between 20 and 30 dollars per square foot. To get a more concise cost of installing a deck, however, the best thing is to speak to your local contractors. For decks in Westchester County, the Bronx, New Rochelle, Eastchester, Yonkers, Mt.

Cost of Replacing a Deck
The cost of replacing a deck includes the cost of removing the existing structure as well as installing a new one. Typically, removing an old deck that is in bad condition can cost from 2 to 20 dollars per square foot. This is a cost that will be added to the overall total, once the new deck has been installed.
While you might think replacing the old structure is an easy job that you can do by yourself in order to cut down some costs, we would advise you to think again. Decks are strong and rigid platforms that have been put in place to last. Improper removal can harm you as well as the surrounding structure of your home. It is always better to contact your local deck construction contractors to take care of the entire process and allow you to enjoy the outdoors without the hustle of building them yourself.

That way you can make an informed decision if you are actually ready to go through with your deck replacement.
