What Clients Say

“Positive, very positive. They always took care of me, and understood my needs. Rich is one of the best people I have ever worked with, and now we have worked together for nearly 4 years. Truly a great family-run business”.
Alexander Tartter, Commercial
“Woodchips Construction puts the fun back into building!  Never a complaint, always giving their best, this team of skilled builders delivers on what they say and get the job done right.  Rich Spoto and crew are building a challenging, one-of-a-kind modern home that we have designed for a discerning client and they are actually making the process enjoyable.  They have won my trust and I look forward to the successful completion of a beautiful building.  I will be working with them again for sure!”
Todd Zwigard, Todd Zwigard Architects
“Woodchips (Rich) was extremely professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of the construction I hired him to do. Although my project was small, Rich and his employees showed the utmost concern about each and every detail within the scope of work. I am very pleased and will recommend Woodchips to anyone that I know that needs a top of the line contractor. Great Job!!”
David C., Campbell Hall, NY
“We were very pleased with the quality of work that Woodchips provided from start to finish. When we learned that our large addition needed structural repair & had major drainage issues, we were truly overwhelmed. Rich contacted us immediately, came to assess the job and quickly provided us with an estimate & a detailed workplan to solve all aspects of this project inside & out. Even under challenging circumstances (working in a crawl space, weather, etc.), Rich & his crew were friendly, did exceptional work, stayed within budget & even finished ahead of schedule. We would certainly hire Woodchips again & would highly recommend them to all.”
Homeowner, Wallkill, NY
“Woodchips Carpentry has been doing an excellent job on our addition. They obviously take personal pride in their work and providing the highest quality of workmanship, which is evident in what they have completed so far on this project.”
Homeowner, Cornwall, NY
“What a professional!!! I contracted Woodchips Carpentry for a Deck and French doors installation. Their job was done on time, within budget and very professional. I’m not using anyone else for any jobs in my house. Their work is excellent. I would recommend them 200%….All contractors should be like this company…Great job…”
Homeowner, New Windsor, NY
“ I had Woodchips perform extensive work on my house after the siding job was complete. Rich was always available if any issues arose, and the work was performed professionally, on schedule and with no complaints. I highly recommend this contractor.”
Lynn D., Poughkeepsie, NY
“Our original front porch was in a sorry state…Not sure how the builder was able to get the structure passed – Posts cracking, nails and screws popping, loose rails, sagging steps – an eyesore and very unsafe. Rich came in and assured us that he would make things right. The crew showed up and worked hard on creating a beautiful new front porch – composite with a railing kit that complimented the house perfectly. He made sure the steps were properly reinforced. It’s like day and night – and the attention to detail and workmanship – second to none. Now the rear deck is shabby in comparison – I know how I’ll be calling for that job…”
Jacqueline N., Monroe, NY
“ Each crew was wonderful to work with. The only extra expenses were my upgrades and the total job came in as priced by Woodchips. I was very impressed with the quality of work and the guidance Rich offered. It was a pleasure to work with a professional who new his job.”
John B., Hopewell Junction, NY
“ I needed to get my deceased Mom’s trailer demolished and removed from a lot in N.Y. state. I live in South Carolina. However from my first contact with Rich Spoto, the owner of Woodchips Construction, this process was positively effortless for me . He retrieved the necessary 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.”

“ Ya know…you basically know when the job is through….your clients pay for the job, it’s over, they’re either satisfied or dissatisfied with the work you’ve done. But I want you to know that the work you do has more power than that. It has a lasting effect that will stay with me whenever I walk through my kitchen, the patio, etc.. Every day I can look at the work you’ve done and I smile….I don’t take it for granted…..it’s beautiful, calming….it makes me feel good….
Now…..I really want you to thank your employee for me…..he didn’t sign up for my picky-nicky-want-it-perfect philosophy….and yet he tried so hard (and succeeded) to work with me…..I am grateful. And Sita….I am absolutely sure she heard your numerous ‘Guess what Marilynn wants now…’ details and sat through your eye-rolling with patience….a hug for her…And you?….well….there is a Ricardo part of this….the fact that you’ve endured the ‘want but can’t affords’, the ‘I’d love it if you could….”, the “I don’t understand why you cant’s”……it’s either a tribute to your patience or your capitalistic persistence (bet you’re rolling your eyes now)…but it amounts to the same thing….thanks, Rich…..it’s beautiful, it’s perfect….it gives me joy”

“ Richard and his excellent crew replaced our front porch and installed a new walkway. This was our first major home improvement project, so we were a bit apprehensive about it having never dealt with contractors before. Well, we are thrilled with the results. Woodchips Carpentry is top-notch. We absolutely recommend them and will contact them again for our other projects.”
Homeowner, Wallkill, NY
“ I would recommend woodchips carpentry 100%,Rich was quick to call me back, and to come and look at the job. I have had numerous “SO CALLED CONTRACTORS” do work on my house and rip me off, and not finish the job. My home has been a mess until woodchips took over, what a great job they did, they were fast and courteous, and new what they were doing, I will use them again for my next project, wish I knew about them before all the disasters happened to my home. Thanks woodchips for a great job.”
