About Lifetime Docks
Our Commitment at Lifetime Docks has always been to offer our customers the highest quality dock components and materials available today at a very competitive price for both custom residential docks and commercial docks for communities and marinas . To achieve this, we have selected top leaders in the marine systems industry to supply our dock components. These manufacturers also provide us with essential engineering support and offer component warranties to our customers. All of these factors, along with our integrity, quality workmanship, service, and customer satisfaction, have made Lifetime Docks one of east Tennessee’s largest residential dock builders. Since 1997, Lifetime Docks has built over 750 residential/commercial steel boat docks and installed over 900 boat lifts on Norris, Cherokee and Douglas Lakes in east Tennessee. Each dock is carefully planned, designed, engineered, and built to meet the specific needs of our customers. Lifetime Docks is conveniently located on Norris Lake in LaFollette, Tennessee. We operate on a year-round basis, so we’ll be there when you need us! We employ several full-time expert crews; one to build docks and one strictly operating our Service Department. What this means to our customers is NO OUTSIDE CONTRACTORS! We simply do what we do best….build boat docks!
Christopher Stephens, born and raised in southern middle Tennessee started a boat dock business in 1998 with his brother-in-law. They had a very successful business for 19 years. Chris, his wife Ashley, and their three children moved to Campbell County to join in partnership with Tom LeJeune and his wife Carol. Chris leads his home and business with solid Christian morals and values. He has a passion for serving the Lord and for helping others. Chris brings with him, not only his love for what he does and his many years of dock building experience, but also his expertise in welding and fabrication of steel dock frames.
Lifetime Docks LLC began with just one guy and a vision. Visiting the lake in 1996 with a background in sales & a love for building, Tom recognized the need for a better designed & engineered dock than what existed. With that thought in mind he started Lifetime Docks in 1997. Since that time Lifetime Docks has grown into one of the largest residential & commercial dock building companies in East Tennessee.
Both he and his wife Carol enjoy working in the company & recreating on the lake.
Together they have 4 children and 7 grandchildren all living in the Knoxville area.
Along with playing on the lake Carol & Tom enjoy Travel & spending time with family. Most importantly they share a love for God, their faith, and family.
