I've never calculated a per sq. ft price or any
formula. I just look at the deck. They vary too much here in surface types; how
dirty they are; and access. You have to possess some knowledge in time needed
for these various issues and then multiply by your expected hourly rate

I charge by the square foot of the deck floor
surface and include the railing. I am in the range of $1.50+ per square foot.
I charge more for second story deck work and for any obstructions (bushes and
whatever else) that would slow me down. I prefer Sherwin-Williams products and
I apply them by hand.
The customer is the one who determines if the deck
is to be cleaned or cleaned and sealed. If I clean it only, I am in the $0.80
per square foot range.
Hope this helps.
