What can you get from decking builders?

When you book any of the decking services on Airtasker, you get to work with nearby contractors, builders, designers, or repair specialists who can take care of your request. They may purchase the building materials on your behalf or help you pick out the best ones for your decking needs. They'll bring the tools for the job. And, they'll make sure that you're satisfied with your new space before they leave.

The details of each task can vary depending on your needs and the Tasker you hire. The following list can serve as an overview of what you can expect from each kind of decking service.

Deck installation

Adding a deck to your house is one of the easiest ways to create more space, enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, and make the home more pleasant for you and your loved ones. Whether it's timber decking or composite decking, professionals know the ins and outs of deck installation. 

If you're installing a deck on your property for the first time, a deck installer in your area can help you plan it out - from choosing the best decking products that match your home's style to offering maintenance tips. They'll also prep the ground, lay out the support posts and boards, and attach the deck to your house.  You don't need to do everything on your own - just post a task and connect with local decking contractors around you!

Deck staining and sealing

Built a new deck but have yet to get it stained and sealed? Need to give your expansive deck its yearly coat of deck sealer? You can request a Tasker to do it for you!  

While some decks are low maintenance, regular staining and sealing are necessary to make them long-lasting against harsh weather conditions. When you request a deck staining service, you get a specialist who'll prep the surfaces, apply the stain, and give you tips on maintaining its condition. Meanwhile, a deck sealing job will involve lots of cleaning, power-washing, and sanding, followed by applying 1-2 coats of sealant. 

Want to stain your deck and do some repainting inside your house? You can also use Airtasker to find a home or construction painter near you.

Deck repair

Deck boards eventually crack and weather, so deck repair is all in a day's work for homeowners like you. Thankfully, repairing the cracks, splinters, and grayish hue of your deck doesn't have to be complicated. When you hire a Tasker to repair your deck, they'll check for rotting wood, and inspect the ledger (the part attached to your house), as well as the joists, beams, and railings, to make sure everything is in top condition. Repairing can be as quick as securing loose posts or as complex as preventing a collapsed deck. When in doubt about any part of the deck's condition, feel free to ask a specialist near you. 

Decking isn't the only thing a nearby Tasker can help you with. You can also use our platform to find skilled gardeners who can beautify your backyard and flooring specialists who can install and repair your home's floors.

Repair timber decking on front porch


Malvern VIC, Australia

16th May 2024

I have a timber porch with jarrah timber and tounge and groove When installed originally the carpenter used secret nails but these have not worked at all. It’s about 3m x 1.5m Unfortunately the boards have moved and I suspect this is because they are settling into the morning sun and also getting some water on the edges. Looking for an expert with some experience to lift them up and install it properly You must have done this before so I know they won’t lift again Pls can u let me know how you will fix it and what screw or nail technique you plan to use. I need someone who knows what to do so this doesn’t happen again.
