I had 4 windows replaced. The house is an older one. The windows were special sizes. From beginning to end they were wonderful. Completely clean from beginning to end. The gentleman were professional and very pleasant to deal with. While here, I expressed some other concerns, and they helped me fix the problems so winter would be a little more pleasant. I can say enough about the job they did. The best compliment is return business, and they will be comming back in spring to do more. This is a wonderful company. They return calls quickly. They explain everything,A stick to what they say...

I have tried many contractors over the years and in every case, I've been disappointed and ripped off. I'd heard good things about Bennett Contracting but for whatever reason, never called them. My daughter used them for window replacement and just raved about their quality of work and professionalism. I gave them a call to replace an old bow window, install a front storm door and repair some siding that had come off during a harsh winter 2 years ago. Bennet was the ONLY contractor that called me back, gave me a reasonable estimate and did the job in a reasonable amount of time. Now, I know a lot of reviews speak of their high prices. I did not feel that their prices were too high. They were about the norm. The crew that had come out and did the work was awesome. They took pride in every detail of their work. They were pleasant, respectful, and really know their trades well. They don't cut corners. I'm so pleased with the work that they did and knowing that it's all guaranteed gives me a sense calm. Their professionalism shown brightly from the first phone call, estimates, punctuality, and the high level of skill and quality work was stellar. I will definitely use them again.

I had a gentleman come out for consultation for removal of a wall and pantry closet and possible installation of cabinets that will be provided by direct buy, makes no sense to pay upsale fee from Bennett’s when I’m a member of direct buy. So this gentleman tells me I would be looking at 55 thousand for a kitchen remodel and btw it’s a ranch style home so the lay out can’t really do much and it’s small, For 55 thousand that would be work to entire home. He further explains he wouldn’t be Interested in the work plus liability if other contractors do work. It seems to me Steve was going to tell me without saying it how I was gonna spend my money instead of doing what I ask. Great to see small companies flourish especially with there’s family history and longevity and years backing. It comes across to me they don’t do little work anymore if it’s not big money involved. So Steve was in the office and was suppose to give me a call later on it’s now 3:41pm and no return call on top of the outrages prices he quoted. I’m not saying these guys are not good cause I will never know, but my personal experience with a one on was awkward and unsettling. The search continues NEVER forget about the little folks!!

I talked with Steven today about future endeavors with our home in the Adirondacks and I’m simply blown away with his knowledge professionalism and and ability to retain the smallest detail that I have brought up. This company is just miles above the rest.

We paid over 20 thousand for them to replace the rotting trim around our house. They painted over most of it and we couldn't tell until a year later when the paint began to peel. Now I'm doing it myself and we wasted 20 thousand dollars. After I found out what they did. Their contact Paul wouldn't even come out to look at it. Still considering legal action. Yeah, we hired you to replace the rotten wood, not paint over it. The paint was peeling off within a year because rotten wood does not hold paint. The work was NOT done, please refrain from saying so. We did not pay you over 20,000 to paint over the rotten wood, we paid you to REPLACE it. You did NOT do so.

we gutted and remodeled our bathroom. Bennett employee John did an awesome job. He paid attention to details and made sure it was done right (behind the walls and with the finished furnishings). He was always on time and treated our home with care, making sure to protect our stairs and wood floors before beginning the work each day and cleaning up at the end of the day. when it was done it felt like we were in a fancy hotel bathroom. we couldn't be happier.

Really, a tremendous experience from start to finish. Bennett stripped and completely rebuilt two bathrooms, and added a bedroom and bathroom as an addition. The process was efficient, and the quality is outstanding. There was excellent communication between us, the work crew, and the Bennett office. No surprise extras, and no disappearing work crews as seems to happen so often with renovations. I can't recommend the company enough.

Had a new front door installed on porch, replacing two old screen doors that were there previously. Joe (one of their carpenters) came out and installed the new door and it looks fantastic! A superior level of craftsmanship! I cant stop looking at the door. Will be hiring Bennett Contracting for more work in the future for sure.

Bennett by far is excellent and has outstanding quality service. I have been using this contractor for years. Our Project Manager EJ is exceptional and always goes above and beyond. We have had the opportunity to have Joe assigned to all of our projects. Words cannot express enough how great this guy is. Joe always goes above and beyond. He is a meticulous individual who is also a perfectionist and always delivers 100% service. I highly recommend Bennett. Hats off to EJ and Joe!!!!!

We recently had the framing of the window replaced. The technician Brian did a tremendous job. We could not be happier.

I recently hired Bennett for a plumbing job and could not be happier. Their level of service and quality of work went above and beyond what I was expecting. From the start of the job to completion was on schedule. EJ Bonacker, the project estimator, and his staff were in constant communication with me. Would recommend them for any home improvement project.

Highway robbery. Look elsewhere. We agreed to a flat rate of 95.00 an hour and ended up getting a bill for twice the amount. When questioned, I was told that it was per technician at the site! This was not disclosed at the time of hire. They also apparently charged extra for a propane tank they said they had to rent to warm up siding which wasn't disclosed either. Let me add, they wanted extra money for their gas! Do yourself a favor and find someone else. They may reply to this to defend their business but as a consumer, listen to us and not them. We are the ones looking for honesty.

Recently I needed emergency repair of my severely damaged living room ceiling (due to a sudden water pipe leak) and Bennett Contracting Company came to my rescue. From my first contact with EJ at the office service department to Jeff, the contractor who completed the work, every contact was highly professional and dedicated to providing quality service. Jeff did an outstanding job. He arrived on time, had an array of the proper materials and tools to do the job, worked carefully and efficiently to preserve the wallpaper, removed a propeller fan in order to do a thorough job (reinstalling it at the end of the project), and had a an impressive eye for detail. He also tested the paint for lead, deep cleaned my rug, and completely removed any debris, cleaning thoroughly. And, he was respectful and very pleasant to work with throughout the project and answered any questions I had, including giving some ideas for a closet renovation I'm planning. I highly recommend Bennett Contracting for highly professional and skilled workmanship and dedicated service.

My husband and I hired Bennett Contracting to remodel our full and half bathroom. We bought an older home in Delmar and our bathroom left us without a tub with a baby on the way! During our initial walk through Kevin was very knowledgeable and professional and really listened to what we were hoping to accomplish with our projects. An accurate quote was provided and any questions we had were answered promptly. Justina accompanied us to pick out the design elements of our bathrooms and helped make the overwhelming choices very easy! Our head contractor was Joel and we were so happy with his work. Joel went above and beyond with how clean he kept his workspace and our home during the project. I was very concerned with paint fumes, dust, etc. while pregnant but Joel took every precaution. He worked efficiently and my husband and I were in awe of his attention to detail, especially with our floor and wall tiling. We absolutely love our new bathrooms (and the baby is happy to have her tub!) and we cannot wait to bring Bennett Contracting back into our home to remodel our kitchen.

These guys are great. Always meet or exceed expectations. I'm a small home owner, not a big business, yet they always pull through.

I know that others have complained that Bennett might cost more than other options you can find, but to me, it was money well spent. There was never a doubt about the quality of the work and materials being used and they couldn't have been more professional. I'll happily pay more for a better product and that is what Bennett provided.
