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.

The work to replace our deck railing began as scheduled in 3 phases. Phase 1 was to tear out the existing railing and some rotted boards in deck flooring and haul off. At our request he also pressure washed the existing deck flooring to make it look like the new railing. Phase 2 involved going to pick up the lumber and start the construction. Mark advised us instead of having lumber delivered he preferred to pick it out piece-by- piece to get the best lumber possible in stock. After arriving with the lumber they worked most of the day and I told them to quit and come back the next morning due to the high heat & humidity. The construction part of project was actually completed early the following day to our satisfaction. They really did a great job and we are enjoying our new railing! Phase 3 was to put down sealer to help protect the deck but weather conditions didn’t permit and so he is scheduled to come back at a later date and put sealer on the deck and railing when the weather has been dry for at least 3 or 4 consecutive days. He just wanted to be sure the deck was totally dry before applying the sealer. In summary, I would highly recommend this contractor to anyone that needs repair to an existing deck or construction of a new one. -Bob 7-13-16

Dan was prompt and clear in communication, reasonably priced, and did a great job on our much needed deck repairs. Additionally, the turnaround on this project was much faster than I had hoped for. I couldn't ask for anything more. I highly recommend him and will likely use his services again.

Jay and the team at Lucas really did provide a solution with our deck repair. It turned into a larger job than expected but they responded quickly and completed in less time than expected. They took great care with the flowers and furniture and pets. We'll be calling them back for a couple of more jobs this summer. You should too!

Andy and his brother were excellent. They repaired my railing in the front of the house and replaced a small deck to our side entrance. They did such a great job I asked them to paint doors and shutters. Our house looks amazing compared to what it was before. I would and have recommended there work. Reasonably priced and quality work.

We needed serious deck repair to help prepare for a home sale and CubeCleaning exceeded all expectations. My dad is a retired civil engineer - extreme perfectionist - and it is very rare to meet his expectations for quality work. Eugene made repairs and rebuilt the entire staircase in record time, and my dad could not be happier with the result. Eugene even took the time to send pictures of the project's progress as it was underway, and kindly explained to my dad everything he was doing and was patient with his questions. We definitely will be hiring CubeCleaning again. Thanks Eugene and CubeCleaning!

We needed to get our house ready for sale. Mr. Phipps, Raymond, came to our rescue! I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of his work and the professional yet personal way he worked with my wife and I. He took the time to understand what we wanted while offering expert advise as well. He first completed extensive deck and front porch repair/construction, including replacing two sets of deck stairs, added a new porch ceiling and new deck lattice, then pressure washed and painted it all. This went so well we asked him to quote several inside jobs: he hung kitchen cabinets, made a matching refrigerator side panel & four pantry doors, installed new cabinet hardware, installed new closet shelving in 5 closets, & floor molding. This went so well we asked him to quote several other jobs inside! He exceeded our expectations at every turn, treating our house like his own. Thank you Raymond!

I am an interior designer and reached out to David McKeehan because of his great reviews. He has been working on various outdoor projects for a client of mine for well over 2 months and is currently building a 12' x 20' outbuilding with a 4' x 20' porch. I can't wait until it is finished with its carriage house shingles matching the residence. Within these past 2 months, he has repaired, primed, and restained 2 decks and 6 arched bridges; installed 90 new solar post caps; gave life to an old beat up gardening cabinet; power washed and twice seal coated a 1/4 mile paver walkway around the property and countless other tasks I am probably leaving out right now. In the course of my 25 year career, I have not met a person with more integrity than David. He really takes pride in his work and truly cares about the customer. He works very efficiently with no tolerance for shortcuts. The job is done the right way or not at all! I highly recommend him for his master carpentry skills. He has now become my "go to" guy for all work requested in his wheelhouse - which is broad. Definitely a 10 out of 10!
