How Much Does it
Cost to Build a Deck?

THE COST OF A TREX® DECK: LET'S CRUNCH SOME NUMBERS

The estimated material costs for a composite deck run from $140 - $154 per square meter, that's including decking and fasteners. But only Trex composite decking is worth every cent. That said, the average cost of a Trex deck varies, which is why we built a tool to gather estimates tailored to your deck size, materials, railing options and budget.


Estimate Deck Material Costs

 


THREE FACTORS BEHIND Composite DECK PRICING

Labor

Labor and installation account for nearly two-thirds of total costs.

Materials

Raw materials could include a substructure, decking, railing, hardware and add-ons. And that's only a portion of the total cost of a composite deck.

Size

Size and shape make a big difference. Both help determine the materials and labour costs of your composite deck.

Tips and Options



For the Budget conscious

Cut costs, not corners. Here's how to save on your deck build:

  • Do it yourself or hire a deck builder in the off-season to save on installation fees
  • Opt for straight sections of decking and stairs over more complicated curved designs
  • Get more use out of your space with efficient features like outdoor storage sections
  • Use creative design tricks, like a mix & match colour scheme, to up the style without upping the cost
  • Know the benefits of Trex vs. the competition
