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.

Hired Andrew to repair and stain my aging deck. If I hadn’t seen the transformation myself, I never would have believed how much of the original deck he was able to restore! Andrew is extremely talented, knowledgeable, friendly and reasonable in his rates. I highly recommend Andrew for your project!

I had a great experience with Panthers. They fixed my deck, repairing part of it and replacing part of it. They were easy to work with, punctual, and their estimate was very reasonable. I would be happy to hire them again.

We hired DeWitt Construction to complete a complicated deck repair. We had several other companies come out to look at the project and none of them were able to address the problem. DeWitt Construction immediately assessed the problem and presented a plan to fix it. The work was expertly completed and the deck now looks brand new. I would definitely use them again.

Mr Mario got back to me within minutes of my request on Thumbtack. His price was quite reasonable and he started work right away. We really needed our deck repaired immediately, and he did excellent work and finished a big job in a few hours. The area was left cleaner than when he started. I’ve already identified three more jobs for him.

Ed was the utmost professional. He throughly examined and repaired all 3 decks on my house. The previous owner of the house built them on his own so they were in need of some major TLC. My main concerns were the aesthetics but Ed made sure to recommend the important structural fixes as well. Ed and his team did everything I asked and more. He worked with me on making sure my biggest concerns were addressed and recommended a couple things along the way that he charged a very fair price on. I would use him again in a flash and highly recommend him for any repair work you might need. 5 stars
