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
I know I should have sent this letter earlier, but I wanted to wait and see how the completed work turned out during our Hot, Dry, Summer. We have experienced no further movement or shifting of our foundation. Tom and his crew took pride in their work, and worked very efficiently. It was a pleasure to have Dodson Foundation do my job. — David Samstag
Last fall, I discovered what I thought was a foundation problem in my house. I contacted Dodson's Service to inspect the house and the problem. Upon inspecting the problem, Mr. Tom Dodson informed me that it was not a foundation problem, but a drainage problem. I contracted with Dodson's service, to fix the problem. My drainage problem was fixed quickly, efficiently, and professionally. I was very impressed with the service that was given to me by their personnel. I would not hesitate… — Geoffrey L. Condren
Foundation and drainage problems on our hoe required the installation of a root barrier system and just recently, an extensive foundation repair.

Mr. Dodson's professional knowledge of soil conditions and repair options gave us a high degree of confidence going into the job. — Paul McCoig

I found tom to be a very down-to-earth, honest and genuine person who is truly interesting in pleasing the customer and making sure that all jobs are done the way they should be. He also charges reasonable prices for great work. He makes you feel confident that, no matter what sort of problems arise during the job, he will solve them to your complete satisfaction, and he in fact does just that. The root barrier installation went so well that I asked Tom if he could go ahead and build me a… — Karen G. Medley
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 let you know how pleased Basel and I are with the work to get our house on even ground. We also want you to know how we feel regarding your honesty and sincerity and that of the crew that did the work. We worried about nothing while the work was being done. The project was done when promised, and the yard was let clean and neat. — Barbara Dudley
