POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • Why do you charge for your designs?

    Within the decking industry, historically when there was just pressure treated wood and cedar, the industry standard was to charge by the square foot. Deck designs were quickly sketched out on graph paper at your kitchen table and generally the designs were not all that elaborate. The square footage was calculated, multiplied by the square foot cost and presto…within a half an hour you had a deck design and a price for the deck. Back then all the deck companies were expected to provide this service for free, and we did not really mind because the commitment of our time was actually quite low.

    That being said at Your Deck Co. we do not charge by the sq. ft., rather the price for our decks is determined by the design. Today, there are multiple factors to be considered when designing a deck, and a great deal of time and effort goes into the creation of a design tailored to you and your family. We place value on the design process, consultation services and creativity that we offer. With the high cost of a deck today, a well thought out deck design takes time, and can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. The fees that we charge cover items such as the costs involved in travel, consultation and actual design time invested into your project.

  • Is there a fee to get a quote?

    No, we do not charge to provide a quote. If you already have a design that details the elevations, project measurements and materials, we would be happy to provide you with a quote free of charge. However if you require us to create a design then please refer to the fees of our available design packages. Learn More
