NJ - Pool Deck Cost to construct

by Shane
(Williamstown, NJ)

I built a free-standing pool deck approximately 160sq ft with (1) set of stairs. Deck is 4ft off the ground.

Materials used for the support structure were: PT-(2-Support Beams)comprised of 4x4 post and 2x10 doubled beams.

Floor and rim joists are all 2x10 pt.

Composite Decking(Veranda)with required screws.
White vinyl railings(with 4x4 pt posts)and vinyl sleeves.

Fascia boards were done with matching composite deck boards.

4x4 support posts under deck are 3ft in ground on top of 12" footer. Exposed 4x4 covered with white vinyl sleeves also. Galv.carriage bolts hold the beams to post.

Other hardware used: 2x10 joist hangers, hurricane brackets, corner brackets, 5" ledger lock fastener screws(mainly to support all 4x4 post structures and the 2x4pt anti-sway bracing under the deck.

Do to the shape of the deck, it took ten footings(12"deep x 10"round) to complete, each one using (3)50# bags of quick-crete.

This deck took me about 4-days to build and total cost of all materials came to:

$2,200.00(13.75sq')all of which I bought at the local Home Depot. Whenever people come over they're so amazed at how sturdy and sound the deck feels.

I tend to be known for a little overkill on the decks I build, but my response is always the same "stronger is better" and "you won't be calling me back to say your deck fell apart".
