Testimonials

Foundation and drainage problems on our hoe required the installation of a root barrier system and just recently, an extensive foundation repair. After receiving several proposals and quotes, we found that mr. Dodson had the most efficient and practical solution to our foundation issue. 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 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
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 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

Llegaron a tiempo, completaron el trabajo en un día y hicieron mucho mas de lo que yo esperaba. Yo recomiendo a Tom Dodson porque es muy honesto, hace un trabajo muy profesional y doy mi mas amplia recomendación por su trabajo rápido y muy bien hecho. — Emma Coronado
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
On behalf of Hope's Door clients and staff I would like to express appreciation for a job well done. The shelter facility looks great. Your professionalism and compassion for the work we do made the remodeling easy for clients and staff. The shelter staff and I enjoyed working with you. — Hayedeh Jahansouz
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
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
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.
