Review by in Poughkeepsie, NY
Where do I start, Rich Spoto was like a brother we had not seen in a long time. He was soooooooooooo nice and explained everything in detail to us. He took on our project, even though it was not a HUGE project. Everyone else that Home Advisor gave me, either did not call back, once I told them what we wanted done, or they said, this is not what they do. Rich & his Team were AMAZING, and we were so pleased they accepted our project. The Team excavated all the brush, and planted premium bluegrass seed, now we have a beautiful lawn. Rich, God Bless you for doing this for us, we are so grateful. By the way, he is so reasonable. hire him, he will NOT disappoint you. Patrick & Renee

Rich was very informative with all my landscape and excavation questions. He was knowledgeable in all aspects of home ownership, very easy and friendly to talk to. He was not at all pushy in obtaining my business and actually gave me several ways to go about to obtain my excavation goals. Definitely the best experience I've had so far with using Home Advisor.

Review by in Bloomingburg, NY
I hired Woodchips construction for a demolition job on two homes in Orange County. When first meeting Rich, it quickly became clear to me that he was an extremely knowledgeable professional .He was not pushy and explained all of my options in an easy to understand way. He is personable and all my questions were fully answered. He is neither arrogant nor condescending. The verbal price I was quoted was fair and did not change when we signed contracts. At the completion of the job there were no surprise extras. From start to finish he kept me updated and was the liaison between the local building inspector and the environmental company that was required to complete the jobs. This took enormous pressure off of me and my family. While there are other knowledgeable contractors out there, it is hard to find one that you know in your heart that they are both honest and competent. Rich and Woodchips Construction is clearly both. When I called his office I talked with Eileen and she was also very professional and friendly. Any messages I left for Rich were returned promptly. Thank you Rich and Eileen for making this as easy as possible. I will not hesitate to hire or recommend Woodchips Construction. Sincerely, Mitch Sanders

Review by in Sandy Hook, CT
I hired Rich to do some work that I wanted done to my home. He and Mike Sr were wonderful to work with from start to finish. They were both on site and available to answer all of my questions. When Larry came to install the insulation, he was professional, explained the process to me clearly and it was a seamless experience! I will be hiring Woodchips in the future...they came in on budget, on schedule, and my home is absolutely stunning!!! My only regret is that I did not call them sooner!

Review by Steve F. in Pine Bush, NY
We are a not for profit organization that raised the money for this job through donations and grants. We put the job out to bid and chose this company even though they were not the lowest bidder. We asked to see previous completed jobs, and were shown three. Later we found out our job was subbed out to another contractor who never touched the jobs we were shown. The owner never checked on our job nor did he return calls when we complained how horrible the job looked. He said he would come back and complete the job in the spring but never did. To date he has not returned emails or phone calls.
Response by Woodchips Construction, Inc.: This isnt even a Home advisor customer, this was a historical renovation on a synagogue. This customer was using his final payment as leverage to extort more work out of us, for free and we refuse to let that happen. The historical architect on the job is very pleased. Our ratings speak for themselves, this customer is just a dishonest, selfish person.

Project: Demolish and Remove Structures
I needed to get my deceased Mom's trailer demo'd and removed from a lot in N.Y. state. I live in South Carolina. Howeve fromr my first contact with Rich Spoto, the owner of Woodchips Construction, this process was possitively effortless for me . He retreived the necessory permits and contacted the building inspector for me. Not only was the job done completely to my satisfaction, al was completed within a 48 hour timeline complete with emailed photos of the finished site.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
