Father’s Day happens on June 20, and in honor, Yelp is giving 10 awesome dads their dream decks by covering up to $2,000 of the construction costs.

Decks are all the rage right now. According to a release, Yelp has seen an increase of 373% in searches for outdoor decks year-over-year from last March to this March, likely because of the COVID-19 and desire to be outside.

To enter Yelp’s Decks For Dad’s giveaway, you need to go through their Request-A-Quote feature to find an eligible professional to finish your deck. Then, submit that quote at

The contest runs through midnight on June 17. Each winner will receive up to $2,000 to help with the construction and repair costs for the decks. The contest is limited to a total of $20,000 for selected winners.

Yelp will pick winners on June 18. More information is available in the official rules at Here’s hoping your dad wins a finished deck!
