Trex Deck Pricing


Protecting Your Investment

With non-subjective pricing, Custom Deck Creations provides an all-inclusive, guaranteed not-to-increase price. We don’t “bid low” just to earn your trust early in the relationship but then surprise you later with required change orders. We put our best foot forward right away to provide you with the best-in-class total client experience.


To provide an idea on how much a Trex deck costs, we’re sharing photos and ranges of projects we’ve built here in the Southeast Michigan area. Every deck is custom designed and built. The total investment will range based on a multitude of factors such as how tall your deck is off the ground, the decking material, sets of stairs, railing or no railing, lights, stone, etc.

All quotes we provide are all-inclusive — they include the design, the full permit fee, working with your HOA and the building department for approvals, all materials, all labor, haul away of all debris, a final cleaning of your deck, our 10 year workmanship warranty, etc. We take care of everything for you. Contact us today for an estimate for your new Trex deck.

Tier 1


Great size deck for a condo or smaller intimate space. About 150sf in size, Trex Enhance Basics or Trex Select decking. Installed lower to the ground. With or without railing. 

Tier 2


Represents many Trex composite decks in the Southeast Michigan area. About 300-350sf in size, 6′ off the ground or lower, Trex Enhance Naturals or Trex Transcend decking, with maintenance-free aluminum or composite railing. Depending on overall design and selected materials, shown investment range can include lights amongst other upgrades. 

Tier 3


Large decks typically 400sf+. Top of the top composite decking such as Trex Transcend, maintenance-free railing, lights, cocktail board, double tier fascia, double- or triple- picture frame, multiple sets of stairs. All the bells & whistles.


Unless the client requests a change, we never ask for more money after an agreement is signed.

On top of that, lock in today's lumber and Trex costs - we won't charge more even if our costs go up. That's our No Inflationary Clause.

Lumber and Trex Market Costs Update

Last Updated: 1/29/2022
Custom Deck Creations

A brief look into the current and expected inflation

Quick Summary

Lumber rose +28% locally from November 2021 to January 2022, and is expected for another significant double-digit increase impacting us in June 2022. We’re also anticipating a cost increase  from Trex around that  same time frame. Depending on size and material selection, decks are anticipated to increase in cost an average of $2,000 to $4,000 come June 2022. Custom Deck Creations is currently scheduling projects for April/May, before we feel these cost increases. Schedule a quote with us today to lock in today’s costs.

For a more detailed look into the market, please continue reading:


The lumber market continues to see pressure on the supply side. Canadian truck drivers are protesting COVID vaccine mandates, threatening to disrupt deliveries in Canada and possibly into the US. Fuel prices are also increasing. Overall demand for Southern Yellow Pine (pressure treated lumber used here in MI) remains steady. Mills are not sitting on a lot of inventory. Lead times from mills to dealers are getting extended.

Pressure treated lumber costs increased locally +28% from November 2021 to January 2022.

Lumber is expected to increase another ~+40% in June 2022. 

Custom Deck Creations is currently scheduling projects for April & May 2022, before we’re impacted by these increased costs.


Data from Trex distributors nationwide are seeing a steady growth in purchases even through winter.

Trex continues to see huge demand increases nationwide. 

Our Interpretation

Lumber will continue to rise in price throughout 2022. We don’t believe we’ll see pre-2022 lumber pricing any time soon.

In 2021 Trex put out 4 separate approximately +10% price increases. We believe more are to be expected in 2022. We do not expect Trex to ever lower their pricing.

No Inflationary Clause

Custom Deck Creations does not have an inflationary clause. Lock in today’s lumber and Trex costs with a signed agreement which puts you on our schedule. We will not charge you more even if our costs go up.
