If you are talking deck boards only, then in my distant locale we'd go to the newspaper, look under Classified, Trades, headlines like "handyman" and figure out type of replacement boards that don't rot & screws this time.

If more than this is gone (structure, beams/joists) then

1) Landscape design/build as per BBB high grades

or if thinking this is an opportunity for a new design, then

2) Landscape Architect as per a search in yellow pages, then verify license

on your state licenseing board website$lcev2.startup?p_qte_code=GEN&p_q

Your Search the List category is deck Maintenance or Decks and Porches.

Re the prior comment on who to use to design a new / replacement deck- note that in many or perhaps most states/cities now, deck/porch design is required to be done by a Civil/Structural Engineer, not by just a contractor or architect. In some cases this applies to all decks, in others only to those over 3 feet off the ground.

Check your local building department website - usually there is a separate fact sheet on decks.

Just resurfacing (replacing boards) would not require that, but might well require a building permit if over a certain $ amount - and in some areas required regardless as tehey consider decking to be life safety critical.
