For a small deck project, a reliable Palm Beach deck builder can be hired at approximately $2,506 to $2,650 per hour rate. That does not include materials and the deck plan. If you are on a tight budget, you can shave off 30% off the total cost of your deck building project if you purchase all the materials and transport them to your home yourself. However, that could be risky as you might buy an additional number of materials that may not be used and would end up costing you more. For large deck projects, you can hire a deck builder and enter into a fixed rate agreement.

Why should I hire a licensed Palm Beach deck builder for my project?

It is always advisable to hire an authorized deck builder for virtually any deck job that will cost higher than $500. This will ensure that you will be receiving quality work for your project. If you want to check on a deck builder's licensing status, you may want to check a telephone directory or search online through the licensing board website. Or you may just ask for referrals from the deck builder about their past clients and projects.

Should I hire only an insured deck builder in Palm Beach for my decking project?

Yes. You should always hire insured people and contractors for your housing projects, including your deck builder. It is important that your deck builder has the necessary accountability insurance that will cover all work related damages. It is also advisable to get a deck builder that has a compensation insurance for his work to cover all injury and health risk issues that may arise on the job.

Does it matter that my Palm Beach deck builder is bonded?

Yes. To protect you in case all agreed terms in the contract have not been met by the deck builder. It is important that all housing projects exceeding $500 cost should be bonded. A bond should be legitimate and must cover the cost of completing the deck job or the cost of re-doing it. It should be secured before the start of the project.

Find the Best Costs on Deck Builder - Palm Beach, 33480

In a fixed rate contract, a deck builder in Palm Beach will get a cost estimate of all the materials, tools, hiring sub-contractors if necessary, and other stuff that will be needed for your project. From the estimated cost, the deck builder will get a certain percentage to compute for his labor fee, add it to the total cost of the project and then will propose it to you on a lump sum. So for example, if the estimated cost of your project is $10,000, then the deck builder may charge you $1,200 including his 20% labor fee. This agreement is mostly recommended for small housing projects like a deck since it will cover all facets of the construction work. However, it is highly advisable that you get bids or estimates from at least 3 deck builders before you hire one. This way, you will have a pretty good idea of how the pricing goes and will have lots of room for negotiation and budget preparation.
