My husband and I had Dawson Builders Inc. remove a supporting wall and add a knotty Alder wrapped support beam and bar put in, to make our home look and feel bigger. This family ran construction business was easy to work with and did a absolutely amazing job. I would highly recommend the Dawsons for any of your construction needs.

When my wife and I retired, our dream was to build our own home. Having no experience in home building we turned to Scott and Maurine Dawson, who were developing the Dawson Estates in Abilene, KS. We could not have been more happy with our choice of a builder. They made a "difficult task" easy for us. They provided the kind of helpful assistance we desperately needed throughout the whole process--from start to finish. The Dawsons have a reputation for building a quality home--this is certainly true of the home they built for us. Scott and Maurine Dawson are very easy to work with. They will a build a home that you can be proud of. My wife and I highly recommend them.

We have been extremely pleased with an addition and a reroofing that Scott Dawson Builders did for us. Scott and Tanner Dawson are the ones swinging the hammers and doing the work. They sub out very little and truly care about the finished product's quality, not about being done and moving on.

We moved to Abilene in October, 1997. From the very beginning, we have been happy with our home and new community, and our builders are to thank for that.In large urban areas, builders slap up dozens of home in a matter of weeks - they are there and gone in a blink. Here, Dawson Builders take their time not only on quality construction of homes, but also on the whole home-buying experience. They helped us get settled into our new surroundings and were a reassuring resource during what would otherwise have been a very stressful experience.

We were greatly impressed with the quality of construction done by Scott Dawson Builders. They took the time and effort to be on the job every day and were always available to answer our questions. Their expertise was evident in everything from excavating the site to the last shingle on the roof. They surpassed our every expectation.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
