If you are looking for a place to create long-lasting memories with your family, you may be considering adding a sport court to your property. Like with any home improvement project, the cost is a major factor. There are a variety of variables that go into the cost of building your Sport Court, with the major influences being the size, site preparation, and special components.
At Sport Court of Pittsburgh, we specialize in building courts of all sizes ranging from basketball courts in smaller spaces to larger half and full-court sizes. Our expert team will work with you to find the right sport court for your space, family, and budget.
To help you better understand the cost of a sport court installation, we’ve put broken down the five major components of sport court installation:
This step includes grading, shaping, and access. Our experienced team has the tools and the knowledge of court construction, grading, engineering, and more to create a sport court that will provide fun for the family for years to come.
Every outdoor sport court installation is unique. Pittsburgh homeowners frequently deal with sloped land and may have a few objects in the way of the site. To remedy this, our team will properly grade the sport court area and will make sure the correct slope and compaction in the sub-grade are achieved for a stable building site.
If you have a larger slope to your property, the cost of the site preparation may be higher, impacting the overall costs of your project. Larger slopes will require significantly more earth and dirt movement, bigger equipment, compaction, as well as off-haul, drainage, and retaining walls to prevent erosion.
The base material for your sport court includes both the aggregate material that is placed underneath the foundation as well as the custom sports foundation. For most courts, we can build them over a 4”-5” thick concrete slab that is reinforced with steel. Concrete is the most trusted foundation for a sport court because it is strong, easy to maintain, and permanent.
If there are coverage or zoning limitations on your site, you may consider a modular base for your sport court. Sport Court’s technology provides a surface that delivers the best combination of shock absorption, ball response, traction, and playability for your court.
PowerGame™ suspended sports surfaces help to reduce the likelihood of head injuries and concussions while Sport Court’s patented Lateral Forgiveness™ technology helps to reduce the wear and tear on joints and muscles from active play, allowing athletes to play longer. This material is also a great choice for an indoor sport court that Pittsburgh homeowners can count on!
No matter the type of base materials you choose, Sport Court of Pittsburgh will work with you to provide general specifications and estimates for the cost of your court, which will vary based on the base material you choose.
After we have installed the foundation of your court, we will go over the options and samples of performance surfacing to help you make your decision.
Once you decide on the performance surfacing for your sport court, we can provide you with a quote for the custom material.
The components you choose are 100% up to you! Many of the courts we install have an adjustable basketball hoop system, but beyond that, you can add multi-sport net poles, multi-sport nets, ball containment fencing, rebounder systems, LED court lighting, as well as custom logos and custom striping for other sports. We offer a variety of additional upgrades for both outdoor and indoor sport courts.
We can guide your decisions by making recommendations that suit your needs and your budget.
