About the Owner

Owner Dave Bryan

Owner Dave Bryan

Dave’s introduction to the remodeling industry started by swinging a hammer for a builder on Martha’s Vineyard during the summers in high school. By the end of college, he knew he wanted to own a remodeling company. Dave and Brenda Bryan started Blackdog in 1989. The company was born out of a spare room and a beat up pick-up truck. Dave kept up a busy schedule, doing all the construction and office work himself. Eventually, they were able to hire more people, and began to create a world class remodeling company that would deliver great experiences and high-quality work on time and on budget.

In 1995, Dave and Brenda proposed a business plan for the company’s first showroom, which has since undergone construction to allow for more displays and office space. And in 2009 the company expanded again, adding another showroom in Amherst, NH. Dave is proud to see his vision come to fruition, and he is excited by the prospect of constant improvement. And when he’s not in the office, Dave enjoys spending time with Brenda and their four kids, as well as upland game hunting, salt water fishing, and building furniture. He also continues to work hard, volunteering in local organizations to support the community.

              I just want to tell you how happy we are with the work that was done on our house. I can’t believe the difference! I didn’t even realize last year how drafty the house was until I compared it to this year. Last year we had the heat on 72 and we were always chilly. This year I don’t even turn the heat on upstairs and in one of the zones downstairs. The two zones I do use are set at 66.

    Customer Testimonial

              We had Dr. Energy Saver come out and perform an energy audit on our brand NEW home. Even though it is new, we felt there were cold spots and issues (such as being able to see daylight through the vertical foundation walls) that needed to be addressed. The audit raised several issues we know were valid and required fixing. Dr. Energy 's team spent two days at our home securing and buttoning up everything that showed as cold spots. The team was professional, polite, patient with my many questions, and efficient. The cleanup performed each of the two days shows a consideration rarely seen these days. Even though winter is over, we already feel a significant difference in the temperature steadiness throughout. The audit and proposal process were the most impressive I've seen in a very long time. I have passed the information on to the rest of the community we live in and nine of my neighbors are considering doing the same.

              Dave, Just a quick (but way overdue) note of “Thanks!” for the recent work completed by your Dr. Energy Team. It has been a pleasure to work with everyone affiliated with Dr. Energy, TBF, and Blackdog Teams. In particular I’d like to highlight the folks most involved with our projects to date. Will Bryan was the consummate professional. He listened to understand our needs and preferences. Will’s excellent knowledge and presentation of the products and options for both the Dr. Energy and TBF solutions facilitated our understanding. If he didn’t know he’d go find out and report back with his findings. This included having you personally check on a number of items! Will is an effective communicator, always pleasant and professional, and timely on all follow-up. This was all very helpful to making our decisions, including choosing Blackdog Builders and affiliates to do our energy and basement remodeling projects. Gary and Ron were the guys that got the job done! Both were professional and clearly know their craft. By the way, both were very hard workers under challenging snow and cold conditions! Additionally, Gary was expert at evaluating the existing situation and how to best implement the pre-planned fixes. When something didn’t seem right he alerted me to concerns and we’d decide how to best proceed. This included his analysis of the fireplace insulation. The primary issues were improperly installed exterior trim and vent that allowed cold air to circulate into the fireplace “doghouse” and then into the house, which essentially negated the existing insulation. A quick fix to the trim and vent openings solved the problem without having to do a complicated and unnecessary teardown. This is just one of numerous “doing the right thing” efforts that Gary and Ron did while on the job. There conscientious efforts and attention to detail was greatly appreciated! The TBF work started today and we are eagerly looking forward the transformation of our basement areas. I anticipate giving glowing reports on this too. Thanks again to you and your Teams! Warm regards, Bruce

    Customer Testimonial

              Dear Mr. Bryan,I am writing to let you know how pleased we are with the work carried out by Dr. Energy Saver Home Services of Salem. Recognizing that we needed to improve the energy efficiency of our home we were impressed with the thorough and straight forward analysis that was carried out with recommended actions. After discussion with Jeremy, the work recommended was to seal and insulate our rim joists and fireplace bump out, install additional and improved attic insulation and pull down stairs hatch cover. We were very impressed with the timeliness of your responses to our requests, the details given regarding the treatments before the job started, the quality of the workmanship carried out, and the way the crew cleaned up the work site each day.It is difficult to find dependable and quality oriented craftsmen today and I would be happy to recommend your team to other potential customers based on our experience. We look forward to improved heating and air conditioning bills in the future and a much more comfortable house in all seasons.Thanks and regards,
