Building new deck..need advice on bid!!

I am looking to replace my current 10x10 deck with a 12x14 deck. All CCA. I have a current bid of $2400 + materials. That includes tear down and haul away of my old deck and building 9 stairs.

Is this a fair bid?

Why the minimal size increase since you're anticipating spending some decent money to begin with?

Cool.

I was guessing it was a replace job more than anything else. Maybe it's just me, but the difference between say $3000 and $3500 isn't enough not to get exactly what one wants.

Of course you're increasing your square footage quite a bit, so never mind me.

I was pricing decks awhile back...

Yeah, the $2400 seems about right. You're essentially doubling your actual cost because of labor. Approximately 1/2 materials, 1/2 labor. Plus the convenience of not having to worry or f**k with anything, which is cool. Same thing with the 14 x 16 option.

Maybe Phobia comes through with a CP discount.
