It seams to vary from one supplier to another but expect to pay between $ 8.00 to $ 10.00 a sq. foot not counting fasteners.

This is not real wood.
It is a capped composite made by Fiberon (horizon line in the color Ipe)

To come back to one of your questions:
If the deck feels wavy it is probably that the joist are not all at the same level (top of the joist). A joist can vary in width. To do it correctly the joist (crown up) will first be nailed to the ledger all flush to the top, then joisthangers are installed. If you do the joisthangers first you can have significant difference in height. After these joist are installed correctly you still need to plane some joist to get rid of any bumps. Some have more crown than others. After this is done we install a rubber membrane on top of each double joist or any place where two boards are nailed together. This will prevent water from sitting in between what promotes rot. As you said you do have seams. If done correctly an additonal block is added to the joist where the two boards meet together, so each board rest on a full 2x. Composite material is very flexibel and will follow the joist. So if there is a difference in height then yes it feels and look wavy. Not much you can do after it is installed unless you take the boards out and do it over.
Pressure Treated lumber quality has been pretty bad in the last few years and is partially to blame and it is getting worse in the years to come and steel deck frames are getting more popular for this reason.
Hope this answers your question.

Thanks so much Clemens for your insightful answers! We've mentioned the waviness of the floor to the contractor and told him we want that corrected! This contractor seem to be doing things backwards. We've had to tell them to do it right the first time and it will save a lot of time and money cause every time the crew leaves there's something wrong or done poorly. We're having them pull up the flooring and create more seams throughout the floor cause its what my husband wants. They said they will fix the wave also... I'm so scared that if I'm not on top of everything they'll just slap it together and cover up shoddy work!! I'm definitely learning a lot about contractors and the process. It just sucks that Im having to crash course myself on deck building! Thanks so much for your answers back!! Wish me luck!
