How Much $$$ Does A New Deck Cost?

There are a few different variables that will affect the total investment of having a new deck built:

  • Proposed size of decking area
  • Type of decks used (timber/softwood/hardwood/ composite)
  • Any extras like stairs, pergolas, verandahs, balustrade, glass panels
  • Foundations underneath the area
  • Any council permission required
  • If the area is elevated then this can create difficulties in the build and cause an increase in overall cost

Most customers will spend around

  • $200 per m2 for treated pine
  • $350+ per m2 for composite
  • $320+ per m2 for hardwood timber
  • $800+ per m2 for deck with roofing and/or stairs
  • $1000+ for elevated cyclone rated decking
