    On second thought,

    Charge them $250 to tear out the whole deck, if you know the basics it should only take 2-3 hours to remove Everything and then you have maybe $50 in a Landfill trip (included in $250). Then you can lay a nice rectangular patio and have 2 or 3 wooden steps come down from the back door.

    It saves them hours of sanding the deck(which they probably weren't going to do anyway. Plus the $50 worth of paint.

    Save the old steps that way you have an outline to use incase you don't know how to make steps.

    It's his first, or one of his first jobs, just stick with the basics and don't worry about the steps unless you really know what your doing, AND the owners are okay with the additional cost.

    Where are you located?
