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.

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.

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.

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.

Todd did a fantastic job with the repair of my deck. The front part of my deck was starting to break down and pulling apart from the post. Todd was able to do a terrific job on reinforcing and repairing the deck. Now the deck is very sturdy again and no more squeaks and other worrisome noises. Todd also re-stained and re-sealed my deck afterwards. He even left me the staining agent, screws, drill bit so I could take care of deck maintenance myself in the future. All this was done for a great fair price that I was very comfortable with. Overall, Todd does quality professional work at a justifiable and awesome price point. He is also a kind, caring, and very friendly person to deal with. He was very informative and went above and beyond by educating me on the various details of how my deck was built, the type of wood used, the issues he noticed, and how to further maintain my deck in the future. Todd is one person whom I can now trust to work on any projects I may have in the future, and he will be the first person on my list to contact when the time comes.

Jaime was great to work with. He came to my house the same day I started looking for someone to work on our deck. He was knowledgeable and gave me an estimate right then and there. His price was much lower than others, which was great. The day he came to repair my deck he was on time and went over again what we needed. They were able to finish it in one day. I would 100% recommend Innovations Landscaping and Fence Installation to my friends.
