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 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
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. We can not begin to express how happy we were with the work you performed. 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
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 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
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
