Some councils also make it mandatory to hire a building contractor or to have building insurance if your decking designs were to exceed a certain size.

Finding a Decking Design Company

In the process of comparing quotes between companies, it is important to consider the following points.

  • How long has the company been servicing the community? New companies generally give cheaper decking design quotes, but there is a higher risk of non-completion of your job if the company is suddenly faced with financial problems. Well established companies with a longer history are more likely to finish the work they are given and provide that extra professional touch.
  • Can the company provide you with testimonials of their work? This is of course to help give you an idea of the service they will provide.
  • Is the company insured? You don’t want to have to bear the brunt of accident liability in case something goes wrong.
  • Can the company provide you a detailed cost breakdown in their quote? Are the prices given estimates, or detailed costs?
  • What kinds of decks does the company specialize in?
  • Additional services – do they provide concept drawing and designs (CAD software), or do they provide help with council approvals? These might attract an extra cost.
  • How often will the companies perform maintenance on your deck, and what is done? Most companies do maintenance every 6-12 months and this will include cleaning and recoating your deck with decking oil which can improve its appearance and durability

Builders Requirements

The deck building company will be needing a lot of information from you when finding out how much does your decking cost. They will initially be needing the square meters of the areas that require decking. Larger decks obviously cost more than smaller ones. Also to keep in mind would be, how many people will be using the deck at once. Also, what is the purpose of your deck, eg, is this for outdoor parties, or for private use? How often will you be using the deck? The company will also be looking at the general terrain of your backyard eg, slopes will add possible complications and increase the overall cost. Above ground decks, such as those extending from your bedroom will also cost more than those that extend out from your house into the backyard.
