Budgeting for a New Deck - Better Homes and Gardens
In fact, the economy of a do-it-yourself deck might buy you a larger design or higher-quality materials. You could build a treated-lumber raised deck, say 10x16 feet, for about $1,500 in materials. Hiring someone to do the work for you makes your total cost in the range of $3,500. Actual prices in your area may vary.
