Good Deck Builders Start With Solid Framing
Most decks frames will first be built with pressure treated lumber. The complexity of your deck design could make the framing part really easy, or much more difficult.

It’s important your deck have rock solid framework that is supported correctly on firm, level ground.

Obviously the price will increase as the size of the deck grows or if you have a difficult property to work on that might need additional landscaping work, the price will also increase.
