HEY!!!! That’s my DECK! (and pool). LOVE IT!!! THANKFUL!!!! Helped me with financing resources as well. His ad popped up on my Facebook feed and I though “what the…? I didn’t ask you!” I had asked other people for referrals. Didn’t get too many, and one company wanted TWELVE THOUSAND MORE DOLLARS than what Chris charged me! Seriously!!!!!! But the other things that made me trust him: talked to 2 people that he had built decks for (and he also apparently did another construction work for one guy), fully licensed, employees with workman’s comp, the paperwork, he had from the other jobs was organized and grouped together in easy to locate manner, has a working relationship with a bank located in Hixson (as well as elsewhere). He was not quick about discussing the plans, and listened carefully to what I wanted/needed, especially in a historic district where certain mandates must be followed along with any city codes. His workers worked their butts off, ahem I mean, they worked really, really hard. I THINK they would get lunch, but I never saw them eat…They were never just sitting around or even just walking around. I MADE them (I pushed them) get in my pool on the really hot days, but even that wasn’t easy. I got everything I asked for, and they even took care of a few irritations like a french drain that needed to be rerouted. Deck passed city inspection first time. Thank You!
