What do decking contractors do?

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 materials on your behalf or help you pick out the best ones for your 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. If you're installing a deck on your property for the first time, a deck installer can help you plan it out. They'll also prep the ground, lay out the support posts and boards, and attach the deck to your house.  

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!  

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 greyish 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, inspect the ledger (the part attached to your house), as well as the joists, beams, and railings. 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.

Paint wooden decking


Kambah ACT, Australia

19th May 2022

We have an undercover area with wood panels that needs to be swept and painted. See photos of the condition of the wood now as well as what we would like it to look like. Area is approximately 6.5m by 3.5m but there is a large 8 person in ground spa in the middle of it so the surface area to be painted is actually smaller than that. You will need to buy paint beforehand and we will reimburse the cost. We are looking for a natural look so a brown colour like in the image attached. Job needs to be done before the weekend.

Great job, thanks Ashish!
