** Advice from the Deck Answer Man desk **

Paying money up front is not a prudent idea

Make it a point to pay for your deck or patio project when it has been completed to your full satisfaction. When a down payment or partial payments are made during or at the beginning of a project, all parties suffer. In most cases the client will not receive the quality craftsmanship and excellent service they require once partial monies are paid. The contractor will lose motivation without a clear and objective goal. If the revenue is misdirected to anything other than your job, the carpenters working on the project may not get paid an appropriate wage and on time. Often times, the material suppliers will not receive the payment on time for their products and services.

Get the deck you really want for the price you agreed upon, every time!

Being a willing or an ignorant partner to illegal labor practices will hurt you as well!!

Please, be aware of the market prices within the concrete industry. When a quote from any company is more than ten percent less than the rest of the qualified competitors, you are getting ready to lose big. The fines for knowingly hiring illegal aliens can range from thousands to tens of thousands of dollars. Denver Decks will continue to furnish the quality materials, experienced craftsman and the exceptional service you have come to expect.

The cost is never worth the crime!

Pricing for DECKS

In most cases your average 200 to 500 square foot grade level deck will be built with a concrete caisson foundation, treated frame (S.Y.P. # 1), galvanized Simpson hardware, 1 x 6 composite or cap-stock decking, snow railing system, and a few steps to the ground. (Brick, Stucco and Vinyl siding houses will be an exception to this standard rule because of the ledger application requirements - 2009 and 2012 I.R.C. and other relevant Building Codes)

Call for accurate pricing 303-730-9642 on your specific project. Please be sure to have the measurements of your project available when you call. Customizing items, small sizes and site complications will increase the cost of any deck.
