“They did what I expected them to do.”

Review by
08/02/2018

“I would like to recognize Mr. Dawson. He was the person who came out, in the beginning, to give us the quote. He explained everything to me in a manner I could understand. He was thorough. I decided to go with them because of his explanation of everything. He was very professional. I would highly recommend him. I do not remember the names of the crew that did the work. I wished I did. It was so long ago.”

“My expectations were met or exceeded with the start of the project. The project was started in January despite the freezing temperatures.”

Review by

“He came up with a recommendation that pretty much exceeded what we expected it to be. He told us how we can improve the current situation by putting a barrier so the roots of the tree go under the house, which may have affected the foundation.”

“Cheri Slater was most helpful in setting up the process of getting the foundation repair work done. As before (the front half of the house), she was also very professional in contacting me and answering all my questions. Also, Todd Battarbee who did the inspection of the house, gave estimates and set up the date for repair was most courteous and professional.”

“Everyone was great. Front office with the calls and emails; first crew for the digging, piers and concrete installation; independent inspector to confirm correct depth and rebar being used( he commented to me that he's seen a lot of bad installs with other companies & that Dawson has always done an excellent job) and the final crew with the leveling. Each crew always answered my questions. They were great!”

“It was good. Their work was good. It was just foundation repair. It was an A+ overall.”

Review by

“I think they did a good job. I'd give them an A+ overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“It was good. There was nothing in particular that I liked about them. This is the first time I've had a foundation repair done, so I don't have any complaints. I'd give them an A overall. They tore the yard up quite a bit, wheel-barrowing stuff back and forth. It took a long time for me to get my yard back in shape, but that can be due to the nature of the work. They have to dig under your house. So, I don't know of anyone that could just leave your yard in the same shape as when they first came in. They kind of left the house in a mess; they picked up stuff. Once again, this is the first work I've ever had done. I tell people they might consider them. I can't just say use them and no one else. My wife says she thinks they did a good job. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist. I think I might expect more than what I might be entitled to. The job was $13,000. It was somewhat comparable to the other bids we got. But for $13,000, that's a sizeable chunk of change to have some piling put under your house. So maybe I was expecting too much.”

“I like the kind of work they did at my house. I'd give them an A+ overall. They've been great. When they say that they're going to be there at that time, they're going to show up at that time. When they say that they're going to be there on that day, they're there on that day. From the people that worked on my house to the people who worked accounting and billing, everything, everyone was so accommodating and helpful in providing all the information I needed. They said they would be there on that day, they were that day at that particular time. I'm happy with the time of separation and the work they did in terms of. After they left my house, it was as if nothing really happened. Everything was put back the way it was before they came in. I would definitely recommend them.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“I liked the fact that they told me exactly what was wrong, exactly what would it take to fix it, charged me exactly what they said they would charge, and cleaned up the mess. I'd give them an A+ overall. I'd use them again, I may need them again. It's an old house. So, I would certainly call them again. I got their name from the lady down the street, who also gave them an A+ before I called them. So far, it's only a year old so I'm guessing it's holding up. I haven't called to say anything's happened to it. They showed up on time. They left it nice and clean. I’m guessing what they told me they needed to fix, fixed the problem. They did a good job.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“They've actually done work for me three times, three different houses. I'm happy to hire them again. They did what they said they were going to do. They pretty much always stayed on schedule and pricing wise, I was happy with that. And the guy I dealt with was a nice guy. All the guys that work for him just really, really work hard. You don't see anybody chatting on their cell phone or goofing off. They were just there to get things done, and I recommend them all the time. I'd give them an A overall. They have a really dirty job. They do mostly stuff on the outside for me. I recommend them all the time.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“We liked the type of restoration, and the bell-bottom piers. We liked the fact that they came back out a couple years later without any problems and redid some things that, because of good old Houston ground, messed up. It wasn't them, it was just the foundation slipped some more. They were great. I'd give them an A+ overall. I've recommended them numerous times.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“I was pleased. I do need them to come back out, though. I just haven't had a chance to reach back out to them again. I liked their responsiveness to detail. They took good care of everything they said they were going to, and it was done pretty much in the time frame they said it was going to be done in. So, they were very reliable. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“It worked out real well. They came and did the job, very professional. As I recall, the payment terms were attractive too. It was like some of it down and some of it when the job was partially complete, and the last payment when they finished. I think it was three visits to do the job so it worked out pretty well. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“I was not completely with the plumbing company that they sent out, but Dawson did exactly what they said they did. They did a very neat job, and started and finished when they said they would. I'm very pleased with the way they did their work. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“They were OK. I mean, they came and did the job. The price was adequate. I did have some damaged shrubbery, but I guess that was to be expected. The dirt that they put on one side of my driveway kind of cracked it. But overall, I'm happy with what they've done. I would give them an A- overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“Everything was great with them. I just liked the fact that they always came and did what they needed to do, and did what they said they needed to do in a timely fashion. I would call them back in a heartbeat if I needed to. I'd say they were an A overall. I would recommend them.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“They had been very responsible. They have very good responsibility. The team, the crew is doing very good job. I would give them an A overall. They did a pretty good job, and I think customer service was very good, very friendly. I would like to recommend with good quality.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“I mean nothing really in particular I liked. They just had a good price, did good work, were quick. I like the owner, the one that comes out and takes care of you and does everything and makes sure everything is done properly. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“I mean, everything was fine. We're starting to have a little bit of shift in the foundation again that I was going to call them about. Other than that, everything was fine. I really don't have any specific comments. I would give them an A overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“I think they're OK. They're pretty good in what they do. I'd give them an A overall. They had to come back to clean up a little bit more. I think they were fixing the base. They followed up. I think they did the work.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“They did it a while ago. We just had them out for a follow up. The actual work they did was a year ago. I can't think of anything, but everything went fine. I'd give them an A+ overall. I would recommend them.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“Everything was good. They were just prompt, and they did what they were asked to do. I would say an A overall. I've already recommended them to my neighbors, and they've already called them to have work done.”

Review by

“When they came out to do the assessment, I had three I think. They were the most thorough so I liked that. I'd give them an A overall. All of it was good.”

“They did what they needed to do. I didn't have to watch every step of the way. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“They had to come out a second time, but they did come out and fix what we needed done on the second time. Just the fact that they had to come back, I won't give them a perfect grade. I'd give them a B overall.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“They did what they stated they would be doing and that's about it. So far, I don't have a problem yet. It's not been that long so I don't know the end results of it. I have to give it time and see if it’s going to hold up. Foundation issues so. Up to this point, it's OK. I would say B overall. There's always room for improvement, but they're OK. They were pretty much on schedule. They seemed to know what they were doing. So far, so good. Like I said, got to give it time.”

Review by
08/19/2017

“The initial is OK, but after the repair they should have had some clean up or follow up. They didn't do well, not good. I'd give them probably a C overall. Cleanliness was not good.”

Review by

“That was several months ago. They deserve an A+. Their quality of work and customer service were fine. Considering we live so far out of town, they were as close to our scheduled time as possible. Their cleanliness and expertise were fine.”

“I know Mr. Klander. I'm familiar with the work that Dawson Foundation Repair did. The  guys did a great job. They deserve an A. Their quality of work was perfect, their customer service was good, and they did a good job. I would recommend them any time.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“The job was done in a timely matter and pretty much as they said it would be. They get an A- from me. Their quality of work was good. Customer service was fine. They were punctual, as I remember. I remember that one crew was better than the other in terms of cleanliness.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“They did just as they said they were going to do. The cleanup was phenomenal. They didn't ruin any plants around my house, which I was concerned about. They did a great job. I would say they deserve an A. This was back in November, so I don't really remember anything about their punctuality.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“I liked their customer service. Their crew was very considerate of my property. They did a good job—I can see the results. The cracks are receding in my ceiling. They’re an A company. The grass that they dug up and put back is causing a lot of weeds, but I don't know what to do about that.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“They got the work done. I give them an A-. The quality of work was good. Customer service was satisfactory. Punctuality was fine, but the total duration of the project took longer than expected. That's the only really negative thing I have to say. They were cleanly and the expertise was good. I would definitely recommend them.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“Everything so far seems to be fine. I'll go check and see, but I don't have any complaints at the moment. They were great. They do what they say they will do. They're prompt, kept everything clean, and covered while they worked. Their work seems to be done well. My slab didn't crack and everything is fine. At the moment, I have no complaints.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“I think that they were very competent and they did the job. They took as long as they said they would; they didn't take longer than expected. Everything they communicated about how it was going to work was exactly what they did. They had good personalities and people skills. We're happy with the results so far. They deserve an A+.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“The people came to the house and checked everything. They were pretty nice. Everything went smoothly. They deserve an A. Only a couple of plants died, but I don't think they could've done anything about it. They said it wouldn't survive the two weeks, and it didn't, so we had to remove about seven or eight bushes.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“All  I can tell you is that everything was perfect. Everything was very good, they were very professional, and I highly recommend them. I have no complaints at all. It was excellent. Everything went really smooth. They followed through with everything, answered all my questions, and they were neat and clean. You couldn't tell they were in my house.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“I liked that they had a good record according to a friend of mine who had an awful lot of work done—three times as much—and to the reviews I found online. I liked the personal attention I received from the owner. I was able to talk to the owner of the company, as well as the supervisor, very quickly and easily. I was very happy with everything that led up to the work, the conduct of the work itself, and the closeout when it was all finished. There was no part of it I was unhappy with. They get an A+ from me. There was dirt and mud everywhere, but I knew there was going to be dirt everywhere. I would absolutely recommend this company.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“I had a good experience. I've used them before, and that's why I came back to them a second time. My only complaint, when they backed that trailer that was carrying the pump equipment, sand, cement, and all that other stuff off of my driveway and into the grass, they left ruts in my yard. I'd say they get an A. As far as the quality of the work, you can't see the work they did, but I anticipated it. I understand what was going in. The dirt was kind of heavy, and I don't think they got a good back till on all the holes around the house. I'm still working on that, and I wouldn't have expected it to be perfect, anyway. Their customer service was average. I would recommend the company.”

Review by
08/10/2016

“We had our original foundation work done 12 years ago. I looked into the history of what real foundation work is, and I went to another company for information. They said the original bell-bottom pier is the way to go, not the stacking of the concrete with the cable lock system, which is going to crumble eventually. So I interviewed about five people and I chose Dawson, and they've  been superb every time. We've only had to have them come back twice to kind of shift, and we've been extremely happy with them. They deserve an A+. They're professional, they're neat, clean, and they do a good job. I would never use anybody else, even if I move to a new home. Their quality of work and customer service is superb. My husband and I work hard for our money, so we want to make sure we don't have to pay for things twice because somebody didn't do it right to begin with. They did an excellent job with punctuality, cleanliness, and expertise. I would recommend them, of course. I've probably already recommended them to ten people.”

“I don't know yet. The gap is supposed to be closed, but it's still a little bit spaced apart. It's not getting worse or anything, so I guess it's OK. When they leveled it, it was supposed to be closed, but it's not closed; it's close to a quarter inch apart. The quality of the work was very good. I really didn't talk to customer service much. Punctuality was great and cleanliness were great. Their expertise was very good. I recommended them to some of my neighbors who had a similar problem.”
