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.

Tom rebuilt a deck for my clients and that helped their home sell in just a few days. He even came back to assist with repairs recommended to the deck by the home inspector. Price was fair and clients are happy. Can't ask for more. Thanks Tom.

Efficient, affordable and friendly! We couldn’t have asked for better service repairing our deck. Dale built a new railing, repaired rotten boards and repaired wood rot on our exterior door... all of which seamlessly works with the existing structures. Highly recommend him!

I contacted Dave's company because I needed to repair a second-story deck on my townhouse. On a whim, I also decided to get estimates on screening in a paved patio on the ground floor. Out of the 5 or so contractors I met with, Dave was by far the most confident and knowledgeable. He knew exactly what to do and how to do it. His rates, while not the lowest, were fair and in line with my budget. The results have been amazing. My neighbors are convinced that my project will boost their property values as well.
