Testimonials

It is my distinct privilege to recommend the firm of Dodson Foundation and Remodeling, of Allen, TX. Tom Dodson, owner and primary engineer, is a business man of high integrity and meticulous craftsmanship. Each member of his entire crew of workmen is dependable, proficient, and takes great pride in not only their work, but also the manner in which they service their customers. My Wife and I are happy to give notice that the Golden Rule is still alive and well in the DFW area. — Dr. Harrell and Sharron Lucky
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
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
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
Thank you for your help with correcting a problem with drainage and soil expansion under our enclosed patio. You are very knowledgeable and practical with the solution. Also, thank you so much for the final cleanup and smoothing of the dirt so i can add soda. You picked up all of your waste materials and removed them from the property, and I appreciate that so much. — Thomas B. Fisher
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
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
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
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
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
