Your pricing was reasonable for the job done and I would be happy to recommend Dodson Foundation and Remodeling to anyone needing similar work. — Ted L. Spurlock
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.

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.

What could have been a difficult process for me worked out to be mostly pleasant. — Jim Brown
Last fall, I discovered what I thought was a foundation problem in my house. I contacted Dodson's Service to inspect the house and the problem.

My drainage problem was fixed quickly, efficiently, and professionally. I was very impressed with the service that was given to me by their personnel. I would not hesitate… — Geoffrey L. Condren
