If by bad boards you mean rotten, then yes he should. There is no other answer than YES.

I think the OP is talking about a contractor resheathing the deck over existing old boards. There isn't much need to replace the boards as long as it's just a few. An large area completely rotten, I'm sure they will replace and resheath over.

Wouldn't it be nice if we had an English to homeowner dictionary.
