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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?

I have a timber deck that may have some rotten joists. It is approximately 6 x 3. I was after a quote to replace all substructure bearers/joists and reuse existing decking.

Deck needs to be sanded, cleaned, some very minor repairs and restained. I have already purchased the deck oil. Here are some pictures of the area - there are a small amount of stairs, and the deck area is roughly 2m x 4.5-5m.
Would recommend Mario to anybody who needs deck repairs and staining. He was very responsive and did a perfect job.

Needing some repairs to my deck at the rear of house. I have 100 lm of spotted gum boards arriving on Thursday this week for the repair job. I am expecting (at least) 1 supporting joist will need replacement but am not sure until current boards are lifted to see extent of damage/rot. I will need tasker to source and cut to size any replacement joist(s)
Cameron idid an outstanding job in repairing my deck. Highly recommended.
