Testimonials

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

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
We had your company do a foundation repair in June 2011 and we were really impressed with the crew that did the work.

It was pretty amazing to watch them work; very professional. — Marshall & Angie Cook

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.

I wanted to write this letter to thank you for helping with my foundation quote. Your expertise and engineering contact helped me immensely as I sold my farm. The buyer tried to get the highest quote possible and your assessment and solution was a trump in resasonableness and saved me thousands of dollars. — Jeff Tissing
Judy and I wanted to write and thank you for the work you completed for the drainage problems we had. Since you have finished, we have had no further problems.

Your workers were very good; the work performed was on time as promised, and when they finished, the areas was far cleaner and neater than we could ever have imagined. It is hard in this day and age to find a contractor who is honest, on time, and does the… — Floyd E. Langley

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
