5.0 Thomas B. Amherst, NY

Rich Robinson of Black Dog Contracting did a great job installing our new gate. He is highly professional. His craftsmanship and the quality of the materials used were excellent. He went over and above what he had promised us and completed the job in a timely fashion. We are very happy with his work and would highly recommend him!

5.0 Mark S. Buffalo, NY

Rich and his son were both professional and courteous, hard working, determined and very friendly! Rich stayed in touch with us, letting us know when the best time was for them to come out and pull our fence posts. They showed up on time and worked well together! We highly recommend them!

5.0 Susan N. Buffalo, NY

Rich came on time and work was done in a timely manner and at a very reasonable price. I had a chain-link gate replaced, and would certainly hire him again.

5.0 Brandon B. Lockport, NY

I woke up after a windy night to find a fence panel in my back yard blown over, as I was headed to work this was obviously a huge damper on my day, I reached out to request contact from a contractor in my area, and Rich reached out almost immediately. A few hours later he completed the work in a timely Matter at a very reasonable cost. I will use him and his business for any future needs. Do your self a favor and call him to have your work done, you wonâ t be disappointed

5.0 Melissa W. Buffalo, NY

I would highly recommend this company. They were extremely responsive and kept me in the loop about everything. Great quality work for a reasonable price.

5.0 Katie M. Newfane, NY

Excellent service. Worked me into/around their schedule so the project could be done immediately. Workmanship was above any other.

5.0 Kevin R. Lockport, NY

Rich went above & beyond/ always on time & budget

5.0 Cindy L. Middleport, NY

Rich is a great guy. Prices are reasonable. Does exactly as he says and some extra. First hired him to make garden planter beds. Then he built a gorgeous wooden fence. I wanted a way to get heavy items in back yard. Rich installed a removable panel in fence. Very happy with his work and his work ethic.

5.0 Kevin ..

He was timely, and did quality work, at an affordable price. Got in and did the jobs we needed when we needed them done.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
