Peggy B. says, "I had a small job for someone to come and gather and bag leaves in a small front yard and back patio area. I live in a townhome and lawn care is provided, but they mostly focus on the common areas and don’t really do detailed work in individual yards. Since I have trees in front and back that really start to pile up and look bad, I needed help. Abel booked me for the day after I placed my request. They were on time and got right to work. They worked for maybe an hour at most. I will be contacting him again for some other miscellaneous work I have, and to come back and bag leaves again probably in a couple of weeks, because the leaves definitely aren’t done falling! Very pleased and would hire them again."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to build a deck?

The cost of building a new deck or porch is $1,500. However, this price can vary depending on a few different factors. The square footage of the space, the type of materials to be used, the intricacy of the project and your specific region can cause the price to fluctuate. To find out how much your new deck will cost, get free estimates from the best deck contractors near you.

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.  

Who is a carpenter and what do they do?

Carpenters are skilled craftsmen who build things out of wood. Depending on what the carpenter builds, they may be referred to by various names. A framer is a carpenter who puts up the framing on a house. A trim or finish carpenter installs the finishing touches of prefabricated or custom trim and detail work once a house has been built and the walls are up. A furniture maker or woodworker builds furniture — such as tables, beds and dressers — out of wood. A cabinetmaker is a carpenter who builds custom and semi-custom wood cabinets. If you’re having a home built or remodeled, your general contractor will either provide or subcontract the carpentry work for the framing, cabinets and trim. You can hire a carpenter directly to update the trim in your home, build you a piece of custom furniture, or repair or replace your wood cabinets.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

What should I ask a deck contractor?

One of the first questions you should ask is whether the contractor has the proper license or insurance. To be a licensed contractor in many states, they must have the experience and knowledge to pass the requirements from your state’s licensing board. 

You should also inquire if they have done work related to your specific project. Just because they’re a contractor, that doesn’t mean they’ve built a deck or an addition like yours. Ask for photographs of decks they've built in the past, and go online to read reviews from past clients.

You also need to ask for a free estimate from several contractors so you know how much the project will cost you (and so you can pay the best price).

Get started today by contacting the best deck contractors near you

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

Do carpenters build houses?

Carpenters are trained to work with wood. That means that any part of your home that is built of wood is very likely to involve a carpenter. Framing carpenters will put up the wood that makes up the bones of your home. If you’re having a wood floor installed, it may be done by a carpenter — although being a carpenter is not a requirement to install flooring. Trim, baseboards, wainscoting and any other detail work is typically installed by a finish carpenter. The wood boxes of custom cabinets will be built and installed by a carpenter.

Although all of these components in your new or remodeled home are built by carpenters who specialize in building things with wood, a general contractor typically oversees construction of the entire house. If the general contractor is also a carpenter skilled in all these areas, they may well construct your entire home. More often, the general contractor subcontracts out the various building stages to different individuals, including carpenters.

Gilberto is very professional and the work that his company has done for us has been terrific. He widened my deck and added stairs, stained the deck and built lattice as a privacy screen for my carport. His estimate was timely and he began the work on the promised day.

Alex did a great job on my deck! It was a two day job, one day to pressure wash the deck and another day to stain it. He was on time, very professional and told me if there were any issues he'd come back and fix them. So far I have seen no issues.

Juan and his team were extremely diligent at delivering quality work. They replaced my deck flooring and the rails as well as installed under decking. They went above and beyond to fix issues, large or small. Juan takes pride in his work and will not deliver something his reputation can’t stand behind. He and his team are pleasant to work with and accommodating to scheduling and requests. Looking forward to working with your team again!

José and his team were fantastic! José came out and power washed the deck one day, and then had his team come out to stain/seal the deck another day after it dried. The amount charged was very reasonable compared to other competitors and José was responsive and helpful throughout. He gave his guidance and opinion on possible stain color, and was just a pleasant contact even throughout this crazy pandemic time. I highly recommend! Before and after photos attached!

Frank promptly responded to my initial inquiry and throughout my deck repair. He was forth coming and honest which I appreciate. His team was efficient and professional. Raul and Marisol (painters) were phenomenal and stood out as superstars. I look forward to hiring them again soon for more projects. Of note, Frank and his team also compeleré my neighbor’s deck and some work on front door molding - she is also very happy!

They helped me out when another company did not complete the work on my deck. I was most impressed by how quick and smooth the whole process went. Everything from the initial call to the completion of the project was done in less than a week. The communication was excellent.

I selected Jandres Painting Service on Thumbtack to have my deck and hand rails sealed. They immediately responded to my request and sent out a representative to see what was needed and followed through with a estimate. The work started immediately and the crew arrived on time and all were very professional. They moved all furniture, even fixed a warped board. This was a three tear deck and each set out working in harmony with each other. Overall the job was completed within 3 1/2 hours at which time they replaced everything. I would and will recommend this company and will have them back for more work. Although they are listed as a painting company. they do much more. It was a pleasure doing business with them.

Henry and crew did a fantastic job. They were meticulous with the details, cuts, and finishing of my deck board replacement. They do a great job tidying and cleaning as they go throughout the day, with a fresh organized start for the morning. I was impressed by their ability to work quickly and steadily, getting the job done in the originally discussed timeframe.

Ken is very knowledgeable and an honest broker. We compared various deck specialists and found some commonalities among the quotes and assessments. With Ken, we found that he did not try to upcharge or recommend unnecessary, additions to consider. In fact, when we offered up other contractor’s assessments, he provided context on their recommendations and shared his professional opinion on why the recommendations were unnecessary. He could have simply agreed with the other assessment and undercut the price; but, he stayed true and said they were not needed. Additionally, his crew, led by Cano (sp?) is professional, knowledgeable, experienced, efficient and effective. They installed the rear beam to bring our old deck into code and did so with utmost care to the existing patio bricks and surrounding landscape. These guys impressed us and acted like quiet professionals. We will absolutely use them for our next project. We found our go to people!!!! Great job, Ken and crew!

Really outstanding work from start to finish. Everyone was on time and kept Fort Handyman kept me aware of impending project completion. Work on my deck repair and repaint was exactly what I wanted. Another plus was getting some small household paint and repair that needed to be done. Prices were good. Paint matched existing colors. Really the most professional tradesman I have had at my house in several years. I highly recommend Fort Handyman.
