Testimonials

Thank you for all your efforts in completing the extensive repairs on my property! You made what would normally b a very stressful experience go as smoothly as possible. I wish all my business dealings went that smoothly! Through the entire process, I felt you cared about me as a customer and you went above and beyond to ensure my expectations were exceeded. Your excellent customer service, fair prices, and high quality work are much appreciated. — Kandace K.
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
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
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
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 appreciate the job you did, installing approximately ninety feet of root barriers between the large oak trees and our front foundation. Your crew accomplished the job in a timely and professional manner and restored the yard to its near previous condition. Your pricing was reasonable for the job done and I would be happy to recommend Dodson Foundation and Remodeling to anyone needing similar work. — Ted L. Spurlock
I never expected God to answer my prayer so quickly when he sent you. After all these years the doors close properly and we are finally going to remodel the house. Your employees were very thoughtful and respectful. We really appreciate all the works. — Brenda Anderson
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
I would like to express to you how very pleased Rick & I was with the work your company did for us today. First of all, the crew was very much on time in fact that came a little earlier than the time that was given. Those men went to work immediately upon unloading the truck. In fact, we were very surprised when we looked out the window and saw how far they had dug the first hole. They were very polite in spite of the 109 degree weather we were expecting today. — Rick & Diana Wilks
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
