Also, remember that materials are purchased per square foot. Materials will play a large role in the cost of your new deck. The wood you choose, railings, fasteners, lighting and other miscellaneous supplies will determine how costly your deck will be.
A redwood deck can cost $30-$75 or more a square foot ($9,600-$24,000 for a 16'x20' deck), depending on the quality of the lumber, project complexity, and whether construction is by casual labor or a licensed contractor.
A PT wood deck can cost $8-$50 a square foot ($2,560-$16,000 for a 16'x20' deck), but averages about $25-$35 a square foot ($8,000-$11,200 for 16'x20'), depending on the quality of materials, project complexity, and whether construction is by casual labor or a licensed contractor. Lumber prices can change daily, affecting the total cost.
The load that is placed on your deck is expressed in pounds per square foot (psf) and the total load or more appropriately, the design load, is comprised of the dead load and the live load. Dead load is basically the load created by the weight of the deck itself.
