The Average Cost for a 2nd Story Deck
Building a deck can be a relatively simple project for handy homeowners, but constructing a second-story deck takes a bit of extra skill. Plan to spend between $45 and $50 per square foot as of 2014 for a deck installed 8 to 9 feet above the ground, according to Decks R Us. Due to the complexity and danger of building a raised deck, this project is best left to the pros, and not well-suited to weekend warriors.
