Average cost to build a deck in the Kansas City area

It is never easy to quote an actual cost to build a custom outdoor living structure. At Archadeck of Kansas City, our custom decks start at a minimum of $13,000. Per the 2023 Cost vs. Value report, the average investment in a composite deck in the Kansas City area is $26,726, which is approximately $3,200 above the national average. While this is not a direct quote for your new deck, this is a fair representation of the cost you might expect to pay for a deck, which will literally last you for decades of low-maintenance, high-traffic usage. Your deck price could be more or less, depending on the grade of TimberTech AZEK decking used for your project and more than a few other factors.

2019 Cost vs. 2023 Cost to build a composite deck

Back in 2020, we experienced much higher building costs. Materials were much more expensive, and much harder to get. Before that time, in 2019, the average cost to build a composite deck in the Kansas City area was $19,846. The four-year cost increase is $6,880. This is a very good indicator that the best time to build is the moment you consider it. Costs will go up annually, and sometimes there are unexpected materials cost increases throughout a single calendar year.

The cost to build a deck will increase at least on an annual basis.

The size, shape, and height of your deck will dictate more or less cost. If your deck is high off the ground, you will have added costs for a stair and deck railings. We typically use all-welded aluminum deck and porch railings, which are not only strong, but reduce maintenance. However, we offer various railings in many styles to suit your design tastes, as well as your expected maintenance level. Other amenities, such as an outdoor fireplace or pergola will further increase the cost of your deck.

What is the average cost to build a covered deck in Kansas City?

As with quoting the cost of a new deck outright, quoting the cost to build a covered deck is dependent upon many factors. The height of your covered deck, materials used to build it, type of connection to your home (roof connection vs. wall connection) and added amenities will all influence the final cost of your covered deck. At Archadeck of Kansas City, we have figured a typical low-end and high-end average cost to build a covered deck. A typical 14′×16′ covered deck usually starts at $32,000. Our intricate and informative sales process will work to your advantage, as we will endeavor to help you to choose the best options for your personal usage requirements, as well as the potential for future resale. We will never attempt to up-sell you but will alternately down-sell your materials and amenities to ensure that you are not over-spending for things you do not need or will not use on your covered deck.
