Deck and Porch

What does a new deck build cost in Ottawa? Three actual customer estimates.

Finished this cedar deck just a few weeks ago.
If you’ve been watching as much Decked Out as I have, you’ve got your eyes on a bigger prize.
What does a new deck build cost in Ottawa anyway? Well to start, Ottawa Home Renovations never marks-up materials, even when we order or pick-up the materials for clients. If a 2×4 costs $2.15, then that’s what our client pays.
John and Sue, the home owners, and I designed this deck
together. There is almost as much wood underneath for
support  as there is above. It took over a week to build.
