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 hired renew crew to get the deck staining done. They finished the project with power washing being done immediately and the actual deck staining couple of weeks later. Their overall work was okay with the staining but disappointed that they did not do the power washing underneath the deck which they said they would do but eventually did not do.There were also stains on the metal grills after the work was done which were not there before. Overall decent for deck staining but lacked in punctuality and customer satisfaction.

Beautiful work! Jose removed our old deck and rebuilt a larger deck made from composite wood with cedar and aluminum railing. He matched our existing stacked stone columns perfectly. Work was completely on time and Jose actually showed up earlier than expected to start on the project. Highly recommend!

I could not have been more pleased with J & H. I needed my deck stained for a graduation party, and gave them very little time schedule to work with. Not only did they fit us in, they did an outstanding job of staining our deck. We had extensive damage and buildup from years of poor quality jobs and dog hair- J & H made our deck look brand new. Very professional and friendly crew- I will definitely be telling my neighbors about this company. Thank you!

Christian pressure washed and painted my deck. He did a wonderful job. He even went out of his way to repair a broken board before painting.

The stairs to our deck were literally falling apart and we needed them fixed for safety, and the deck needed repainting as well. Ron's crew tore out everything that needed to go and rebuilt the stairs from scratch after putting down cement so they don't rot away again. They got it done quickly and the actual construction only took one day (plus a day before of power washing and a couple hours after for clean up). Everything blends seamlessly, you can't tell any work even happened on the deck except that with the new paint job it looks like new. Its a relief to have it fixed and done. It looks great and more importantly its sturdy and built to last now.

My experience with PPI and Jordan was exceptional. He was always on time for appointments. He had excellent follow through. He is always polite and very professional. I hired PPI to rebuild a 30+ year old deck. I was very impressed with how quickly they were able to rebuild the deck. The quality of the build is top notch. I have never had a home renovation go so smoothly. I look forward to hiring PPI for future projects.

Complete waste of time. Several missed appointments and broken promises after committing to my deck repair project. Poor communication and no regard for my time. I definitely don’t recommend anyone using this guy.

Scoa Remodeling installed new deck boards to replace the old ones. The price was fair, great quality, and they finished when promised. They cleaned up good afterwards too. We will use them again in the future.

J&H redid our two level porch. Moved all furniture, pressure washed, prepped and re-stained. Work was complete in two days. They weren't the cheapest, or the most expensive - and their work was great. Our deck looks amazing!

Extremely happy we found Jordan. Wish we had sooner. He did a great job adding stairs from our deck to the backyard and also adding built in bookshelves to our family room. You will be happy you contacted him.

I have only praises for Jose. He was very professional and his prices are very fair. He demolished & completed a new deck as well as other smaller wood work projects at my property. He was always on-time, did great work, extremely responsive and an over all pleasure to work with. Will definitely work with him again and highly recommend him.

Robert did a great job with the deck and I would highly recommend him to anyone. From the beginning, he outlined in the quote step by step what he was going to do and priced accordingly. He communicated with me throughout the process and let me know what the process would be. The final product could not be better and the work more than met my expectations.

Jose and his men were phenomenal. They quoted me a fair price to add stairs to my back deck, and used high quality material. The job was complete within 48 hours of Jose viewing the site and quoting me a price. They were friendly and answered all of my questions. Would highly recommend Jose, and I will use him for any other projects around my house.
