4 Factors That Influence the Cost of a New Deck

When building a deck for your new home, there are several variables you need to consider, none more important than its cost. In it, you’ll find that there are numerous factors that can influence how much you’ll be investing in this home improvement project. Oberg Roofing, your go-to source for steel roofs in the area, takes a look at four of them. 

4 Factors That Influence the Cost of a New Deck

1. Size. Every deck is unique, which is why it is not surprising that size will be an important factor when it comes to the project’s cost. Once you determine how you want your deck to be used, you’ll find it easy to stick to a specific deck size.

2. Seasonality. Timing is everything when it comes to building your new deck. To get it done at the quickest time possible, consider scheduling it during a period when there’s not a lot of demand for deck builders and roofing companies, like late fall or early winter.

3. Primary Use. Make sure you have a clear idea of how you intend to enjoy your outdoor space. Whether you want it to be a place for receiving guests or holding summer barbecues will dictate its overall pricing, especially when you consider weight limitations and additional features like built-in seating or a fire pit.

4. Materials. Your choice of decking material affects your project’s overall cost. You can use hardwoods, softwoods or composite. At Oberg Roofing & Remodeling, we have access to elite materials and specialty products to match your design preferences. Our synthetic or natural options can add a pop of color or blend in naturally with your surroundings.
