Welcome to the forums!

Nicks can be filled and missing boards replaced. One issue is that once carpet has been put over it and the pad stapled down, you have to get all the staples out before sanding or they can rip up the sanding drums. Then the little holes from the staples need to be filled. If you are going to DIY, then the amount of extra work may not bother you; but if you are going to have it done, it will increase the cost of a nice job. Get a few quotes and compare to replacing. Are there a lot of loose boards and squeaks?
