How Much Does It Cost To Repair A Deck?
A common question we get from clients who have decks that have become very worn or damaged over time is, "How much does it cost to repair a deck?"
The cost of repairing a deck usually ranges from $1,000-$1,800 with labor included. Depending on the type of repair needed and the size of the deck, extreme deck repair jobs can cost as much as $5,000 or more.
Pricing varies depending on factors like size, location, and material. For instance, if you are looking to have a small backyard deck installed that will be constructed with pressure-treated lumber then the total cost could range from $2,000-$5,000.
When Should You Repair A Deck Or Replace It?
A deck can last anywhere from 10-25 years. If you notice any water damage to the deck, then it is time that you take care of it immediately. The longer you wait, the more damage will accumulate and the less likely it will be that the deck will be repaired rather than replaced.
Some people may think that repairing a deck is cheaper than replacing one because they don't need to pay for new materials or installation. However, if there is an extensive amount of damage done to the decking, then you may need to replace it anyway. The cost may also depend on the type of materials used in your decking and their quality.
Does Replacing A Deck Increase Home Value?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer for this question. It really depends on the location and the market conditions. A deck replacement can increase your home’s value if it is in a desirable area and the repairs are significant.
Building a new deck almost always increases a home's value and homeowners could recoup as much as 100% or more of the cost of a new deck in the resale value of the home, but repair work does not always make a significant impact on the home value.
How Long Does It Take for the Average Deck Repair?
The time it takes to replace a deck can vary depending on how big it is, what type of materials are used, and if structural issues are involved. A good estimate for an average project would be 1-2 weeks for a deck that is several hundred square feet, or longer for larger decks or more complicated projects.
