Top Decking related questions

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 nor ability to do this yourself, feel free to include it in your task post and have a deck builder do it for you.

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. 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.

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 deck specialist or find a handyperson near you

In general, deck builders recommend using screws - particularly deck screws. 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. 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. Deck builders may also recommend applying a sealer once a year to protect all the surfaces of your deck better. And while most builders don't advise using caulk to fill in gaps, some may be fine with applying colored 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.

What do deck builders 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.
