Testimonials

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 seldom pass compliments on for services that I pay for, but that is the purpose of this letter. Most of are uneducated and bewildered about foundation problems and the needed repair techniques and related costs. Based on your evaluation, obvious sincerity, and professionalism I chose your firm to do my repairs. Your crew was prompt, efficient and provided an area clean-up when complete. — Glo Johnson
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
Thank you for the excellent work that you did for us last week. The work began promptly and was completed on schedule. Also, the crew was highly efficient.

The crew met their challenges, and all was done with great care. Thank you for consciemiously monitoring the entire project yourself. In addition, we appreciate your crew completely restoring the… — Carolyn Rogers
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 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
We had your company do a foundation repair in June 2011 and we were really impressed with the crew that did the work. They did the project involving multiple piers inside and out in two days, leaving no mess, and put everything back where it was originally. It was pretty amazing to watch them work; very professional. — Marshall & Angie Cook
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
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
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
