We highly recommend Dodson Foundation. Bob & I can definitely say that this is the only letter of recommendation we have written for anyone. We both agree that we hired Dodson Foundation because of Tom and the character that he represented to both of us. The fact that BBB had no complaints entered into our decision. — Bob & Phyllis Green

Thank you so much for your promptness in getting our foundation leveled. You saw our need to get it done quickly and you came to our rescue. We were pleased with your work as well as your workers. — James & Violet McCosta
Sid and I would like to thank you and your crew for the excellent job of foundation repair you did for us last month. It was beyond our expectations. I was very glad a friend of mine highly recommended your company. At the time we were taking bids on the repair work that needed to be done and no other company was willing to work with us the way you did. Your honesty of what was needed and of course what was not needed was the main reason we chose your company. — Michelle Mulder
Just a short note to say "Thank You" for making the repairs to our foundation in our sunroom. The outside door now opens! We were concerned about all the glass we had in the sunroom and the glass came through without any breakage. We are very happy with the work that your crew did. The area where foundation work was completed, was clean and back to the way it was before repairs began. Your crew was very professional and helpful in a number of places. — Stephen and Charlene Seachord
In November 2004 your firm installed root barriers around five trees to protect our foundation. In addition you installed surface drains and a surface/French drain to carry off water from a flat portion of our side yard. This work was accomplished in a timely and professional manner with minimal disturbance to the yard. On completion the work area was clean, neat and restored as nearly as possible to its previous condition. Thank you for a job well done. Feel free to use us as a reference… — Walter Simmons
I really appreciated the attention and diligence you personally gave me. You saw the job was complete. You went and above and beyond in several areas like extra drain work and grout touch tips in my bathroom. — Peggy Papert
You proved to be flexible, communicative and professional. You and your crews were so trustworthy and honest that I was free to leave the house in your hands for extended periods even after I moved in with no concern that all would be well on my return. What could have been a difficult process for me worked out to be mostly pleasant. — Jim Brown
Thank you for your help with correcting a problem with drainage and soil expansion under our enclosed patio. You are very knowledgeable and practical with the solution. Also, thank you so much for the final cleanup and smoothing of the dirt so i can add soda. You picked up all of your waste materials and removed them from the property, and I appreciate that so much. — Thomas B. Fisher
I just wanted to thank you for the good job you have done on putting in my root barriers. The area you did the work in is so neat you can hardly notice that any work was done. I also want to know I think you are very honest and sincere. When I need any work done I will surely have you do it. I will also recommend you to my friends when they need anything done. — Phyllis Darney
