The Cost of Decking Installation

Decking installation costs depend on the following factors:

Shape and size of the area where deck will be installed

– determines the number of days to get the job done. It can usually be completed in two to three days.

Type of materials to be used

– softwood or hardwood timber or composite.

The average cost for a typical decking installation in Cambridge ranges from £1000 to £2000.
Opting for softwood will cost you around £1000 to £1200. Hardwood decks usually cost around
£1500 to £1700 while composite decks are at £1900 to £2000.

The overall cost of the project can be a bit pricey. It does make sense considering the fact that
decking installations must be made only with premium quality materials that can withstand the
changing environmental temperatures, traffic, and time.
