Comprehensive Deck Cost Calculator

[Prices updated 5-22-03]

Just put in the area of your new deck in square feet and zero (0) if you want no stairs.

If you want stairs, put in the height in inches from the door threshold to the ground where the stairs will be located.
If you want two (2) sets of stairs, just add the elevations together and put that number of inches in the blank

This calculator will automatically determine the cost of the stairs*.

*The cost of the stairs is calculated based on the total height of the stairs and assumes 4' wide stairs and the specified number of 4'x4' landing(s).

**Composite Decking costs include Composite floor, composite rail cap, composite fascia trim (hides ends of deck boards), pressure treated (PT) railings and substructure, and TrapEase small head screws to closely match color of decking. See www.fastenmaster.com.

***To calculate cost of fiberail®, you will need to know the total number of linear feet (LF) of railings (including down stairs) and multiply that number by the above per linear foot prices.
