Wooden deck repairs


Incredibly easy to work with, fast response, arrived early (which was a good thing) on Christmas Eve. A creative thinker, Ashley solved a decking problem simply at no additional cost. I would work with Ashley again in a heart beat.

Timber deck repair work


Khyber was great with communications, prompt and took great care and time in fixing our deck. With only one rotten joist and main frame that we budgeted for, Khyber went over and above and took apart the whole deck to ensure nothing else was rotting and put it back together again. Would definitely use him again, thank you Khyber!

Top Deck Repair related questions

No. The deck repair specialists you hire have all the necessary tools and equipment to do this service. They bring their equipment to the worksite, along with their years - sometimes decades - of experience in repairing decks. However, you should have any permits ready if your town or village council requires them and supply your Tasker with the timber to cut new planks to replace the old ones that are cracked or have rotted away.  

Repairing your deck can take anywhere from one to several days, depending on the severity of the damage and the repairs' complexity. Replacing a few rotted planks can take a few hours (if not the entire day), while replacing all the posts or joists can take days. The weather can also be a factor - repairing your deck is best done during sunny weather.

Yes. If you run a business providing deck repair services, you can hire Taskers to boost your staff. Don’t forget; you can also hire Taskers to do other services for decking.

In most cases, you should have damaged sections repaired instead of replacing the whole deck. Older decks with posts that go into the ground can suffer from wood rot and moisture damage that you can’t see. Repairing older decks like these can eventually cost as much as getting a new deck, so you’d best replace it with a new one. Consult a repair specialist on the extent and cost of needed repairs before buying a new deck.  

A wood deck should last you an average of 10 to 15 years. Composite decks can last longer, up to 25 to 30 years or more. If you want a composite deck installed, prepare to pay a higher upfront cost, but pay less for maintenance down the line. A wood deck costs less but compared to composites; you'd have to spend more for repairs and painting, staining and sealing for its upkeep.

There are many signs that your deck needs repairs. This can include erosion around the posts, loose railings, cracked or splintering boards and other damage. It would help if you never ignored even minor signs of wood rot on your deck. Book a Tasker if your deck develops any signs of wood rot, as this can lead to safety hazards and more costly repairs later.

What do deck repair services include?

Deck repair services include all the necessary tasks to fix the damage on your deck. This service can consist of inspecting the deck and assessing the damage, removing damaged sections or parts, preparing replacement parts as needed, then installing the new parts. Note that your town or village council may require permits before your Tasker does the repairs. If you don’t have the necessary permits yet, some Taskers may get these for you upon request. 


Inspecting the deck

To determine which parts of your deck need repairs, your hired specialist checks each part of the deck. They can inspect the fascia boards, the planks, railings, deck posts, beams and underlying joists. Your specialist will look for any cracks, rots and other damage caused by moisture and the elements. 


Removing damaged parts

After checking the entire deck, your hired Tasker can disassemble or remove any broken parts or sections before doing repairs. They can remove any nails, fasteners or screws to disassemble damaged joists, fascia boards or planks. 


Cutting new parts

If your deck repairs involve replacing joists, steps, planks, railings or any other part of your deck, Taskers can cut new parts like these from timber. Some taskers can get the needed timber for you upon request if you don’t have them ready. To avoid any fitting issues, they make sure to cut the timber to the exact measurements of the parts they’re replacing. 


Installing replacement parts or sections

Your deck repair specialist installs the replacement parts once the planks or other parts are cut to the exact dimensions. They can place the replacement parts at the removed parts' exact location, then attach them to the deck with screws, nails, or any fastening tool. Some Taskers may recommend using more nails or screws and reinforce sections if necessary. 


Finishing touches

Once the damaged parts are removed and replaced, your deck repair specialist can check that the replacement part is a perfect fit. If any replacement fascia boards or planks appear raised, they can sand them down to size. If the repaired area is small, some specialists can also apply the appropriate deck staining to match the rest of the deck, but this may cost extra.


If the new parts of your deck are on a large section, you can hire a separate service to do this for you. Now that your deck is fixed, why not hire someone to make sure it sits on a beautiful spot

Just a few screws on the deck need to be replaced as they are ripping off the wood. It need a good clean and oiling to get back to its original look. I am looking for someone who can do the job for a reasonable cost or to help me with the job. I can assist if required. Note: it’s hidden screw installation (screwed from the sides). I guess it needs a special tool.

Jen is excellent. She was very patient and willing to adjust to my timing and requirements. Thanks Jen.
