For composite decking materials you are looking around 8-9$ per square foot. For cedar decking you around 5$ per square foot. Also 4$ per square foot for just the framing.
Yeah, we dug 3 foot holes and poured concrete. Hard work, but the deck will stay level longer. Didn't bother with the tubes though. Cement isn't much more expensive though. Average bag is around $3.50. We needed 2 per hole, and a deck block is around $6. It isn't as easy to do of course.
A deck contractor in Vancouver gave us an estimate of $15/sqft for materials (PT lumber) and $14/sqft for labour for a deck of about 275 sqft.. Part at ground level and part at 3 ft. height, but he didn't seem to care much about the relative proportions of the different sections for the purposes of estimation - they were going primarily by the total size.
Pressure-treated pine is the most common decking material and costs between $7.50 to $9 per square foot, whereas hardwoods and modified woods cost between $18 to $35 per square foot. Another important consideration is that labor costs may also vary depending on the material used.
That investment can vary widely, from around $15 per square foot installed for pressure-treated Southern yellow pine decks to more than $30 per square foot for cedar and redwood. Ontario has several suppliers.

(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) I just paid $24 a square foot for a 10x15 pressure treated deck. I am not sure what it costs elsewhere but here in Ottawa, Ontario. Pretty basic with a simple 2x2 baluster railing secured to the edge of the deck and two stairs down about 3 or 4 feet. That came to $3750 for materials and labor.
