What’s the Cost of a Patio Construction?
It’s the dream of pretty much every Queenslander: to build a patio extension on their house so they can entertain family and friends, or simply to set up a deck chair, lay back, and sip a cool drink or read a good book. As well as the practical benefits, a new deck can give you that warm holiday glow without leaving your own home.
Of course, what everyone wants to know about their dream deck is how much it will cost. Well, with experienced patio builders from DeKing Decks, the cost of a brand new, high-quality patio may surprise you. Check out our cost factors and quote calculator below—your decking dream may be closer to a reality than you think.
Patio Cost Factors
So how much does a patio cost? Well, as David from DeKing Decks explains, the cost can vary greatly depending on your personal preferences for what you’d like to build.
**The main factors that affect the cost of construction include: **
- the size (length and width) of the proposed patio deck
- the type of timber used
- the shape of the patio deck
- the site location and how much slope there is on the block
- whether the patio deck is for ground level or 2nd storey
- whether you want the handrail option
- whether you want an insulated flyover patio roof
Patio Roof Options
Many Queenslanders—when adding a patio deck to their house—are also choosing to build a patio roof to shield them from the harsh summer sun. If you’d like a patio roof, we have a number of great options.
‘A standard patio roof is built with powder-coated steel posts and beams. Or, to blend with your existing house design, we can use materials such as large chunky hardwood posts or rendered columns, etc.,’ David said.
‘All these patio roof options have a weighting on the final price but can add a lot more value to your house by marrying with your existing design and creating a seamless extension,’ David said.
