"When we met 6 months ago, you told me you would build a dock that met and exceeded my expectations.  Fewer people seem to keep their word in the past few years.  I am pleased and honored to know that not only are you the best builder of docks and seawalls in Orlando, I suspect you are the best in Florida and then some.  At every step you and your crew were professional, honest, hard working, and exceptionally skilled.  After the dock was completed with a red Christmas bow ahead of schedule, you built a seawall of the highest quality.  It will outlive me and maybe my children.  And after the dock and seawall were complete, you handled without question or issue every minor detail that came up.  Your organization is amazing.  I recommend your company without reservation.  Anyone considering a dock or seawall would be foolish to use any other company.  We know how others operate. We were blessed to find Hodgskin's Outdoor Living.  Thank you again.  Please use me as a reference anytime you wish."

"Thank you very much for being such a superb dock designer and builder. We have received a great many compliments from our neighbors on the waterfront due to the obvious high quality of your work. You came to us very highly recommended and you have more than lived up to those accolades. In a world where so very many businesses are run on a basis of doing enough to get by, it is reassuring to deal with someone who puts so much pride into what he does. Thanks again for building a dock and boathouse that is esthetically pleasing and solid enough to probably outlast our house!"

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for not only the quality of work and the final product, but also the service that you have given us over the past five years. You and your people are to be commend. You can be assured that I would greatly recommend your company to anyone who wants quality marine construction."

"Nature Preserves of America, Inc. owns and operates the Rainbow Rivers Club, a private membership resort, located in Dunnellon, Florida. On October 8, 1991 we entered into a contract with Hodgskin Construction Company of Orlando, Florida for them to construct a "T" shape floating dock for our Marina. From the initial contract with them and all through the negotiations and actual construction we found them to be very professional. Jon Hodgskin and his crew did an outstanding job for us with a minimum interruption of services and inconveniences to our staff. The quality of their work is excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering this type of work."

Chief Financial Officer, Nature Preserves of America


"Mr. John Hodgskin of Hodgskin Construction constructed the dock, walkway, and seating circle for us at Cypress Point. We were very pleased with the workmanship and cooperation we received from John. We would certainly utilize his services again if similar needs should arise."

Thank you once again for the fine job you and your crew did building our boathouse. I can't tell you how many compliments we've had on both the appearance and the quality of construction. I was particularly grateful for your attention to each and every detail of construction. Again, Jon, my hat is off to you for a fine job. I have recommended your company to several of my colleagues already."

Brian's crew did an exceptional job repairing our damaged dock. They performed all of the agreed upon items in a professional and expeditious manner. Equally impressive was the work performed by Mark. After he removed the mold and dirt from the existing walkway, it was impossible to distinguish the newly installed area from the former structure. Thank you for following upon on our dock repairs and for seeing that everything was accomplished per our agreement.

Bill Altice


The actual construction phase was the best experience that we have encountered in either our business or personal projects. Brian, Shawn and the rest of the crew were outstanding, professional and caring in every effort. You have met and exceeded our expectations. That is perhaps the highest compliment that one can give.

Harry Mervis


You and your team are world class and we want you to know how much we appreciate and enjoy the finished product! First Class!
