Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

What should I ask a deck contractor?

One of the first questions you should ask is whether the contractor has the proper license or insurance. To be a licensed contractor in many states, they must have the experience and knowledge to pass the requirements from your state’s licensing board. 

You should also inquire if they have done work related to your specific project. Just because they’re a contractor, that doesn’t mean they’ve built a deck or an addition like yours. Ask for photographs of decks they've built in the past, and go online to read reviews from past clients.

You also need to ask for a free estimate from several contractors so you know how much the project will cost you and so you can pay the best price.

How much does it cost to build a deck?

The cost of building a new deck or porch is $1,500. However, this price can vary depending on a few different factors. The square footage of the space, the type of materials to be used, the intricacy of the project and your specific region can cause the price to fluctuate. To find out how much your new deck will cost, get free estimates from the best deck contractors near you.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Is it hard to build a deck yourself?

If you don’t have the skills, experience and qualifications, building a deck may be difficult for you to do on your own.

Structural integrity is key when constructing anything, but especially something you plan to have your family and friends use regularly. The safety of the structure takes careful planning and experience.

Professional contractors have the knowledge to make a safe, beautiful deck for you. They also know the proper permits and insurance required to legally build a new deck or remodel a porch in your city.

When in doubt, contact the best deck contractors near you and start getting free estimates today.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

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!

Inmer was very thorough. I asked for a quote to refinish my deck, and there were a few boards that needed to be replaced. He inspected the deck, including below the deck and pointed out how some hangers were improperly installed. He provided me a detailed estimate. He id what he said he would, being patient o let the new wood dry thoroughly it rained so much. I was very happy with the work, the responsiveness, etc.

I reached out to J&H Painting for pressure washing and deck repairs. Hal was quick to respond and schedule an appointment to assess the project and give me a written quote. He sat down with me and explained in detail what needed to be done to bring my deck back to life. We set a day and time to have the work done and Hal emailed me the day before to let me know that Curtis would be coming to pressure wash the house and deck. Curtis showed up right on time and did a fantastic job with the pressure washing. Curtis came back the next day with his partner Joey. They reset all the nails and added screws where needed, scraped and sanded the entire deck and added a fresh coat of solid stain to protect the deck and fences. They were both very professional, efficient and delivered top quality work as you can see in the attached pictures. J&H Painting gets 5 stars from me because of their exceptional customer service and top quality work. If you need pressure washing or any kind of paint or stain work done these are the guys you want. Without a doubt I will use them again in the future.

Hank and his team did a great job with our deck. This was no small project, 450sq ft + stairs + aluminum rail system. The project was flawless, including no issues with inspections. Their pricing is competitive, I would recommend them.

Wow, what an amazing experience with Julio and the gentleman he worked with on our deck. I have a massive 2 story deck and these two handled it like the pros they are. They were extremely polite, took pride in their work and are perfectionists when it comes to the details! Pricing was better than all other quotes I received on Thumbtack and then the quality was through the roof, hard to come by! After talking to Julio one time you can tell he is a great guy and going to give you amazing service. So glad we went with him.
