Deck builders in Greer SC
Adding a new deck to your Greer SC home is a great way to increase the value of your home, not to mention it adds entertaining space and allows you to enjoy the outdoors more. The size, style and materials with play a major role in the overall cost of your new deck. Also deciding to handle the job on your own or hiring a professional will also determine the overall cost of the project. Doing it yourself will also determine how long the project will take and how happy you are with your new deck. The best thing to do either way is to plan ahead.
Like with any home improvement project it is important to decide how much money you want to spend to get your desired deck and setting a budget so when all is said and done it is something you can afford. With deck projects this is very important, because there is usually a lot of space you can work with, so it is easy to get out of hand. On average a new deck can range from $4000 – $30,000. Since that is such a large difference it is important to set your plan and budget ahead of time, because it is easy for things to get out of control and you end up spending more than you budgeted for.
You may be wondering how there can be such a large gap in those numbers. The 3 biggest factors to look at when planning your deck are these.
- The materials you pick
- The size of your new deck
- The deck builder you hire to do the job
Think about maintenance when deciding on what materials you choose. While it may seem a little more expensive now to choose one material over another, it may save you a lot of time and money over the years. This is because some materials require a lot of maintenance while others require very little if any.
Note: When trying to figure out the cost of your new deck, keep this in mind. The average square footage price is between $25 to $40. So plan out the size of your deck and use those numbers to get an idea of the cost.
