What is the cost of steel deck framing?
The treated framing package that holds up your deck is a small percentage of the overall cost of your deck project.
Recently the prices of treated lumber have risen sharply and make steel deck framing look more appealing.
The average job would cost three times the price of treated, but the benefits far outweigh the cost increase.
Remember, treated lumber is a wood product and can shrink, crack and deteriorate over time. That's why we never recommend using existing treated lumber and re-decking.
