Testimonials

I am writing to let you know that Tom Dodson and his crew just finished doing foundation work at my house in Lewisville, TX. I was happy with the work that they did. They arrived on time and were able to finish in one day. Tom communicated numerous times as we had to reschedule once because of the rain. The crew did a professional job and went above and beyond what I expected them to do. I would recommend Tom Dodson to anyone that has any foundation problems. He is very honest,… — Karen Sutherland
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
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
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.

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 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
Dodson foundation and Remodeling helped my family by installing French Drains and a Sump Pump. When i bought my house in arch of 2007, our inspector showed us that we could have potential foundation problems if we didn't fix the drainage situation in our backyard. I called three different places, Dodson's included, and received three different quotes. Two of the companies gave me estimates nearly 33% higher than Dodson's estimate. I called one other place and they were going to charge me… — Justin Steiner
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
