Top Decking related questions
The cost of building a deck can range from £800 to £3,900, depending on the size, materials, and labour. Garden decking costs an average of £1,500 for a 15-metre square space. The costs for composite decking can range from £1,500 to £2,000 for a 15-metre square space. Timber decking can be priced differently from composite decking. Provide the details for your project and set a fair price to find the right decking contractor in your area.
First, cover the ground with weed control fabric. Then, add 40 to 50 mm of gravel on top. This prevents your deck from absorbing moisture. One other option is to place concrete pads on the ground, then have the deck sit on top of them. If you don't have the time or ability to do this yourself, feel free to include it in your task post and have a decking builder do it for you.
It is not advisable to caulk a deck because 1) the caulk won't stain to match the rest of your deck, and 2) caulk is not stable. Eventually, the caulk will break out and worsen the situation. Instead, it's best to sand around any cracks or voids, turn the boards over, or replace them entirely. When in doubt, consult a decking specialist or find a handyperson near you.
In general, deck builders recommend using screws - particularly deck screws - for decking boards. Screws are better at holding things together - they don't rust as easily and don't pop up eventually. Nails that rise or pop up are dangerous, so it's best to avoid using them for your decking boards. If you'd like to DIY your decking project, we suggest consulting with a decking contractor near you beforehand. They'll help you pick the best materials or even build the deck for you!
Injecting waterproof resin glue and using clamps can help fix up cracks in your deck board. Deck builders may also recommend applying a sealer once a year to protect all the surfaces of your decking better. This is especially important for timber decking boards. And while most builders don't advise using caulk to fill in gaps, some may be fine with applying coloured caulk. To better weigh the options when it comes to repairing a cracked deck, consult a decking specialist near you.
It's not advisable to lay decking straight onto the soil as the wooden boards will absorb moisture. This can seriously damage your decking and ruin the vision you have for your home. Decking specialists recommend placing either concrete slabs or weed control fabric plus gravel on the area you want to build your deck. Only then can the contractor start laying down the boards.
Yes, decking boards should have gaps that are ⅛ to ¼ inch wide. These gaps allow for the natural expansion and contraction of the wood. Without the proper spacing between boards, your deck may get damaged. You can get more tips on building a deck in this guide. If you'd like to make sure that your deck will have an adequate gap width, consider hiring a top-rated decking specialist near you. Tap the "Post a task" button to get started.
High-quality decking boards come in different varieties: hardwood, softwood, and composite. For a long-lasting deck, hardwood timber decking is the best choice. If you're on a budget, softwood decking can be a good option. For long-term performance and durability, composite decking is your best bet. Talk to your Tasker to determine which material is best for your home.

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.
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 garden decking, timber decking, or composite decking, professionals know the ins and outs of deck installation. If you're installing one on your property for the first time, a decking installer in your area can help you plan it out. They'll also prep the ground and decking area, layout the support posts and decking boards, and attach the deck to your house. You don't need to do much for the project - just post a task and connect with your 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!
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 colour and condition. Meanwhile, deck sealing 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.
Decking 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, and 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.

Re deck garden patio
Lower Sydenham, Greater London
22nd Nov 2023
Hello, I am looking for someone who can replace all the decking which is rotting in my garden. This is for the entire decking not just the broken bits. I need someone who is available to do the job from 02/12/23 and it needs to be completed by 10/12/23 I would need you to have all your own tools, equipment to cut the wood to size, and a car to collect the decking from B&Q down the road.

I believe the posts below the decking are in good enough condition and do not need replacing however once the decking has been removed you may decide this also needs replacing. Please reply with a PRICE & how long you estimate the job to take and what day you are available to do it. Please give me two prices, one with a quote for replacing just the upper boards and one for replacing both the under frame of the deck and the deck itself. - Due date: 10th December 2023 - Due date: Before Saturday, 2 December 2023

I need my wooden deck cleaned and sealer to be applied on it.
Islington, Greater London, N1
27th Sep 2023
I have a wooden deck on my terrace, which is 6 meters long and 1.9 meters wide. It is in good condition, and it needs some light maintenance work. In short, it needs to be cleaned and an oil-based sealer needs to be applied. I like the colour of the wood, and I'm happy to go without stain. That said, I do want to make sure that the sealer isn't shiny. In terms of timing, I am available to provide access on Saturday, 30 September, and on Sunday, 1 October. Not sure how much time will be needed for the deck to dry well once it has been cleaned, so I am happy for the job to be split into two visits.
