It's been nearly 6 years since Tyke built our home in Avalon, and we're still spending millions of dollars (no exaggeration, literally millions) to fix his shoddy work. Right now we're in the middle of digging out and rebuilding our in ground pool due to him and his "recommended pool guy" not preparing the ground properly and not building the retaining walls as they should have been built.

This is just one of a long list of expensive problems we've had that included the entire outside of the house to have to be sanded down and redone due to cracks and terrible plaster work.

I've just had it. I don't normally write bad reviews, but I wish someone woudl

Preferred solution: I simply want to let others know to avoid hiring him so they can avoid the misery and mistakes I've had to endure.

He built our house until we fired him for being over budget and trying to make claims that items on the plans were optional until confronted. He built about 70% of the home until we caught him over billing for these items. One call to the arcitect and Mr Johnson started writing checks back to us.. But Wait, theres more..

About a year or two after the construction my wife and I started noticing some water leaks around the porch areas..All done and completed before we fired this guy!! Tyke wanted to play the blame game and say he didnt do it!! Well we have pictures of the contruction stages and the dates that confirm he did in fact complete this part of the home prior to being FIRED!!!! The repairs were over 200k to fix..

And i hear theres others out there with the same types of issues... BRENTWOOD BUILDERS LLC HAS BEEN SUED FOR THIS TYPE OF THING BEFORE(WISH I WOULD HAVE CHECKED FIRST) ATTATCHED IS A LAW SUIT BROUGHT ON BY MR AND MRS LIGGETT...Guess what for....Yep, WATER DAMAGE!!! You see in the State of Tennessee there is a statute of limitations thats only 3 years.. So the warrantys are no good basically.

Same thing that happened to us, Doors leaking,doors not properly panned, windows not propery sealed etc. My doors had to replaced. BE CAREFUL WITH THE CONTRACTS YOU SIGN WITH THIS MAN, HES A SNEAKY ONE AND WILL GO BACK ON HIS WORD!!! YOUR CONTRACTS MUST BE ROCK-SOLID BECAUSE YOU WILL NEED THEM..

Biggest mistake we evermade was haveing BRENTWOOD BUILDERS LLC (TYKE JOHNSON)build our home. Thank God I have a company that could support this type of Loss!!! We have several neighbors that have had similar issues with TYKE JOHNSON!! He tells them one thing, then does the other.

Most of the reputable contractors in this town know TYKE to be this way as well!!!

Dont be fooled!!! Dont let this happen to YOU!!!
