Testimonials

We highly recommend Dodson Foundation. Bob & I can definitely say that this is the only letter of recommendation we have written for anyone. We both agree that we hired Dodson Foundation because of Tom and the character that he represented to both of us. The fact that BBB had no complaints entered into our decision. — Bob & Phyllis Green
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
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. Upon inspecting the problem, Mr. Tom Dodson informed me that it was not a foundation problem, but a drainage problem. I contracted with Dodson's service, to fix 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
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
Foundation and drainage problems on our hoe required the installation of a root barrier system and just recently, an extensive foundation repair. After receiving several proposals and quotes, we found that mr. Dodson had the most efficient and practical solution to our foundation issue. Mr. Dodson's professional knowledge of soil conditions and repair options gave us a high degree of confidence going into the job. — Paul McCoig
Just a short note to let you know how pleased Basel and I are with the work to get our house on even ground. We also want you to know how we feel regarding your honesty and sincerity and that of the crew that did the work. We worried about nothing while the work was being done. The project was done when promised, and the yard was let clean and neat. — Barbara Dudley
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
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
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
