  • Design Features
  • Weather
  • Materials


The size of the deck will be considered when determining a timeframe to complete the task. The larger the deck, the more labour required however, many homeowners are surprised at how quickly a deck can be installed. When choosing what size deck is best for you, it’s important to factor in the size of your block plus the proportions of your new deck in comparison to your home.

Location and Access

Your chosen location may currently be home to a pathway, tree or grass therefore this area needs to be cleared. Access to the space may also be limited and only available at certain times which can add to the time required.

Design Features

You may choose to install lighting in the flooring and have built in storage. Whatever design features you choose, these may add to the timeframe for completion.


Weather conditions can cause unexpected delays when building a deck. While a deck can be built all year around, it is important for homeowners to factor in that there is a possibility of delays due to unforeseen weather conditions.
