Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to repair a deck?

The average cost to repair a deck is $2,075, but keep in mind the prices professionals in your area charge could differ. For example, prices often depend on the material (cedar, composite, PVC, pressure-treated, hardwood deck materials, etc.) that is used. The extent of damage also affects the price, with severe mildew damage requiring pressure washing and restaining. Other factors include the need for site grading or elevation, stair or railing repair, and termite damage repair or replacement.

Always get cost estimates from several deck repair services to find out exactly how much your repairs should cost.

Should I repair or replace my deck?

The signs that your deck needs repair may include warped or soft decking boards, wobbly or loose railings, or rot. However, it’s worth considering your deck’s age before deciding between repair and replacement. Decks older than 10 years are candidates for replacement, particularly if they’re made of wood instead of composite or PVC. If the foundation is affected, or if the deck seems to have an overall need for extensive repair rather than just an isolated area, consider replacing it.

Of course, you can always consult with deck professionals if you need help determining if you should repair or replace your deck. Ask to receive cost estimates for both the needed repairs and replacement before making a decision.

What is the life expectancy of a wood deck?

A wood deck is likely to last between 10 and 15 years. However, some decking companies say a wooden deck’s lifespan may last several decades. This life expectancy assumes that there will be regular maintenance and sealing. It also assumes that the deck has been built with high-quality and appropriate woods, such as cedar, pressure-treated or rugged hardwoods. Proper design and drainage combined with regular cleaning and maintenance can make a deck last longer.

Does a deck increase home value?

A back deck may (or may not) increase your home’s value or attract potential buyers if you’re looking to sell. According to the Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features, a new wood deck with an estimated construction cost of $10,000 recovered $8,000 for the overall recovery of 80%. Still, 9% of realtors suggested that home sellers should add a new wood deck before putting their home on the market, and 4% said this project has helped closed deals. 

The impact of adding a new deck will likely depend on its material (wood, composite, etc.) and where you live. For example, if you live in an area where people rarely spend time outside because of the weather, it’s reasonable to predict that prospective home buyers might not rate a deck highly on their list of must-haves when looking for a new home.  

When in doubt, consult with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out if adding a new deck to your home is the right move to increase your home’s value. If it is, contact the best deck contractors near you to get free estimates and start planning your project.

I was very happy with Hank and his team. They were prompt and worked through the heat. My deck is over 20 years old and was in need of repairs. Hank did a thorough inspection and advised me that it was not up to code. He brought it up to code and my deck is better than ever. The best part of all of this is that his price was the lowest of all the other estimates I highly recommend Hank for deck work!

Paul was quick to respond to my initial request. He completed 2 projects: wood repairs to a beam on our deck and replacing rotted wood that surrounds the garage door. He kept us informed of his progress and did exactly what he said he would do. Very pleased.

My husband & I have needed to have several boards replaced & painted on our deck & found good recommendations for J & G Painting on Thumbtack. Mario Vasquez was the leader of the crew, & we were amazed @ his carpentry & painting skills; professionalism; kindness; enthusiastic & friendly personality; the enjoyment he took in starting & finishing every project; the daily texts he sent us every day confirming when he would arrive the next day, & a text as soon as he arrived; & his incredibly hardworking energy. He was never late even one day, & never canceled a single day of his work. When we saw the excellence of his deck board replacement & the quality of his pressure washing & painting of our entire deck, banisters, & stairways leading down to our back yard, we hired Mario for several other home repairs. He accomplished these tasks as conscientiously & skillfully as our deck work. We were highly pleased to see all the results of Mario’s work, as he replaced our side yard landscape ties stairs; installed two handrails; & repaired outside window sills & repainted them in several places. Mario’s creative safety ideas—such as installing light-reflective strips on each landscape tie stair, & beautiful solar-powered lighting along the banisters—were just a few among his many solutions to every job he & his crew undertook while working on our home. We feel confident in highly recommending Mario Vasquez & look forward to hiring Mario & J&G Painting’s crews for any future projects @ our home. He is a delightful person, as well as an excellent carpenter, painter, & dedicated professional!!
