Testimonials

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 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
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
Thanks for your expertise and helpfulness in getting the House in McKinney back to level. I was very uneasy in my decision to get the home fixed and all the options were confusing on your trips out to the house; you measured the foundation from all areas of the home, drew up a plan of repair, explained the process in great detail, talked about your crew and what to expect, discussed cleanup and payment. — Jerry Anderson
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
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
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
