I was referred to LVX Builders by the TimberTech website as an authorized TT installer. I hired them to remove an old deck and build a TimberTech deck for me. (Apparently, LVX and Deck Craft are now one and the same). I believe Jae is knowledgable and capable of building a high quality, attractive deck. That's what he did for me. My experience, however, was tainted by a lack of attention to detail and some derogatory comments. For instance, Jae told me several times that the $20K price we agreed for a 300+sf deck was less than he should have charged me. He seemed to think I wasn't sufficiently appreciative... I believe once parties agree to a deal, the terms need not be brought up again and again. I certainly don't want to hear how big a favor you're doing me... Let's be real, ain't nobody going broke charging $20K for a deck this size. The deck incorporated two colors. Yet in spite of multiple emails/conversations about the color design, the final product was different that what had been agreed. The project was completed when I was out of town. Against my better judgment, I sent Jae a check and assumed that he would work with me to resolve the color discrepancies when I got home. Sadly, he refused. When I got home I found two piles of dirt and debris around my new deck. There were nails all around the worksite and in my driveway. One promptly ended up in my tire, requiring a trip to Firestone and a tire patch. When I asked Jae if they were going to clean up the site, he told me I hadn't paid for the "white glove treatment..." Hoping to salvage some good will from the experience, I to Jae that if he would pick up all the nails and eliminate the dirt piles, I would accept the color blunders and move on, willing to recommend him in the future. He never replied. So I spent an hour picking up nails and several hours leveling the dirt piles. I can only conclude that small projects are not his preference.

I was helping to renovate my parents house in Brentwood, TN. We wanted to demolish and rebuild their deck as it was old and falling apart. I wanted a composite deck since it would be less maintenance for my parents who are getting older. Deck Craft recommended Timber Tech since they are an approved contractor for them. The deck turned out beautiful and I would highly recommend them.

I was really impressed. The extra steps they take to build correctly are impressive. There is no comparison compared to the handyman-type builders I have used in the past. The finished product looks great!

Jae Botavn was great from start to finish. He responded quickly to my quote request, met me in person twice to discuss options and delivered his bond and insurance along with the quote, which made me feel more comfortable from the start. He communicated well through out the project when issues arose and did a wonderful job on my backyard deck. I highly recommend Jae for contractor needs around the house.

LVX Builders does amazing work! Jae Botavn and his crew removed my old deck and built a new one. Reasonable price. He has a great crew working for him. Jae also worked with me adding rails around my front porch and down the steps. I love the way it turned out!

Each DeckCraft build is constructed to local building code requirements and guaranteed to pass inspection all the way through final approval.

  • Prime (General) Contractor – Bidding or contracting directly with the “owner” of the project.
