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 contracted with WD Home Repairs to repair and stain my small deck. The bid was fair and the work quality excellent. Donald did exactly what he promised when he promised and was available at all times for questions at all times. The deck looks great.

Chad's overall business decorum is so far beyond par-it's outstanding. It's hard to find a contractor to arrive ontime, let alone early! He was there each day he said he would be, and worked so hard for my husband and I. We had a PROJECT. Chad fixed the foundation of our deck, in addition to fixing under our sunroom. He is kind hearted, and responsive. He even wrote us a deck repair report to put in our disclosures for when we sell. Chad will be the only individual we use going forward for any kind of deck or construction work.

I had seen all the great ratings of Todd here, so I hired Todd for our huge deck repair and stain project. Among the others. he gave me the cheapest quote. I went with him on September, 2019. He estimated to get it done in two weeks. He only finished repairing it through November, 2019. He was insincere about scheduling and always came up with continuous questionable excuses. But he did work on repairing the deck and did a good job. But it took so long that the winter did not allow to finish the rest of the work (power washing, sealing and staining). Yes, he dragged the work from fall to winter to get that situation. It defied my original plan of protecting the deck from winter weathering. Now whole bunch of the newly replaced woods are flexed and deformed since they did not get sealed before the winter. So most of his work now looks bad which looked great when he actually did it. I tried hiring him again this summer to finish what he started but he still seemed to be insincere. From the first day, he's having all sort of issues with everything, again. He also installed a barn door for us, he did great work there. He helped us get that from store and stained it. He gave great price for it too. But he had us waiting for close to 1 month before getting it done. Bottom line, If you have all the time in the world, you can hire him for big projects for budget price. Otherwise, he seems great for small installation that requires no more than a day. I have decided not to work with him due to my bad experience with him. I wish him luck.
