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 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
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
Thank you so much for all your help on my foundation. You are the only person that gave an estimate and noticed the sink holes under the house and spoke to me about what they were and the quick damage they would cause. I also appreciate that you were willing to work with me on payments due to my personal financial situation and the fact that the repairs could not wait. — Robyn Elliot
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
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
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

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
