“Dear Tony: Just a note to tell you that your employees have made an excellent impression on my neighbors. They are extremely polite – greeting people with “Good Morning” and in many ways endearing themselves by their behavior to speak well of themselves (and you by inclusion) to the neighborhood in general.
We all thank you for that. It’s difficult on the entire neighborhood when there’s construction going on with the noise early in the morning, the presence of trucks and equipment as well as many extra people present and cars parked where they usually park. For that reason, when the “intruders” are pleasant it just makes everyone be in a happier mood. We all appreciate it.” – House Raising Customer, Freeport NY
“My experience working with BGC Corp has been unbelievable. My husband and I had no knowledge of the house lifting process. BGC gave us good advice to build our expectations.
I am delighted with the quality of work completed to date and the personal attention given to the lifting of our house. My friends and neighbors are amazed with the progress BGC has made on lifting my house.
Ben’s General Contracting Teams-Office Support has exceeded our expectations with the continuous flow of completed tasks/work. I would recommend BGC Corp and workers to anyone who appreciate good quality work and schedules being met.” – The Watler’s
“We’re writing to express our gratitude for the fine work that BGC Corp done on our home.
Our experience began with a visit from Tony. Tony was patient and pleasant as he faced a barrage of questions from us. Tony always took the time to make sure that we had a thorough understanding of the work and the process that would lead to completion. Our frequent interactions felt more like conversations with old friends.
BGC Corp’s tireless efforts to save us money and efficiently utilize the grant were overshadowed by their efforts to make sure we were satisfied with the work, the pace and our progress.
BGC’s employees were always polite and they took pride in showing us the workmanship and speed that the technicians and craftsmen were maintaining.
The painters, welders and subcontractors all maintained a high level of professionalism and they did this effortlessly and with a smile.
We really appreciate all of your effort, and highly recommend your company. BGC Corp made a difficult experience a pleasure.” – The McWatt’s
“My home had to be demolished and rebuilt, I started working with a company that just didn’t come through for me, and I had a lot of difficulties, and I discovered Ben’s Contracting, they came through and took charge of the whole project and mastered every detail, brought the right people. The people did tremendous work. They were always being overseen by Ben and Tony and Don. All these people just took a real big interest in just making this home what it is now, which is really beautiful and is the best home in the block actually.
I would call them anytime, and they would respond. They were a couple of things that needed to be addressed and one night even Ben himself came out at 9 o’clock, at the last minute. He came and took care of the problems.
I am thoroughly satisfied and grateful and appreciate greatly the work that Ben’s did, and I would certainly have no reservations to recommend him to anybody. As a matter of fact, I would highly recommend. If you are in this area, and you need a home built. These are the people that you have to deal with. They really took an interest. It was not just straight business. They took a lot of pride in the work that they did. And they make sure it was done right.” – Martin M.
“This is a letter to express my gratitude to your company and workers for the expert planning, meticulous work, and extremely professional management of the raising of my home. I made the decision to trust BGC with, what seemed to me, the enormous project of raising the home I love. I celebrate this choice as it was definitively the right choice for me. From the first contact with Ben’s General Contracting Corporation, I was so pleased with the efficiency and responsiveness of the main office.
My house looks beautiful; the results of the project exceeded my expectations. Although raising my home required significant financial resources, working with Ben’s has not only been a painless experience, it has been an enjoyable journey!” – Dina K., Freeport
“Amazed and impressed! No other General Contractor could or would provide this kind of coordinated and swift service. Super job Don and super job to your team. You guys built me a very cool house. THANKS.” – Tom C., Freeport
“I was involved with Ben’s in a huge Sandy recovery on a co-op in Freeport. We started days after the storm and 80 units back in less than 60 days. The remaining 80 were back in from 4-6 months. Terrific job in difficult time!” – Irene S.
“It was such a pleasure to work with people that are competent, immensely responsive, forthright, fair and honest. Tyra and Tara are amazing. They take ownership of problems and see them through with genuine concern, compassion and professionalism.
Don was always willing to address my concerns immediately. I always felt he listened to me even when I did not know what I was talking about.
Ben was always monitoring the project and received me warmly without appointment and in the most professional manner.
Despite great demands when needed he was there immediately and addressed any issue I had. The quality of the build is admired by all who see it. That includes Village officials and utility employees as well as neighbors and friends. Health and Happiness to all !!!!!!
Please call me if I can be of service to you at anytime.” – Martin M.

“We, like many other New Yorkers were devastated by Superstorm Sandy. Also along with many New Yorkers, our flood insurance and homeowners insurance companies were more interested in keeping monies in their accounts than paying them to us. We were very involved with New York Rising. Unfortunately, everything is a “process”. This process went on for almost 1 1/2 years. We contacted Jerry Win from Ben’s Contracting and signed a contract with him to repair our home. The Village of Freeport estimated the damages to our home in the amount of 93.3% destroyed. We had our Flood Insurance company give Ben’s the first check in the repair process. However, the only way to repair this home was to level it and raise it. I am a senior and I physically cannot walk the steps that would have been necessary to get into the house.
Then we were told by New York Rising that we were in the group to have our house bought by New York State through the New York Rising Buyout program. Well like everything else this was a “process”. Ben’s agreed to hold our check for repair and put our contract on hold until we found out whether the State would actually buy the house.
This situation went on for MONTHS. At no time during that time frame did Jerry of Ben’s, Tony of Ben’s or Ben of Ben’s bother us to start construction. Jerry checked in every few weeks to find out how things were going. Actually, I think he checked in more to find out if our depression and mental anguish due to the Superstorm and ensuing issues was any better. This man and the entire company are real HUMAN BEINGS.
Well, long story even longer, the State finally purchased the house and our mortgage got paid off. Ben’s gave us a check back in the FULL AMOUNT that we had given them from the insurance company. They took not ONE CENT for their time and efforts on our behalf.
WHAT A TERRIFIC GROUP OF PEOPLE TO WORK WITH. You read everyday about general contractors who rip off people, well that is one thing you will never see or hear about from Ben’s.
I have stayed in touch with Jerry Win, from Ben’s and hopefully I can recommend Ben’s to people who need contracting work. If we ever own in New York again, we will DEFINITELY use Ben’s for any work we will need.
Our heartfelt and sincere thanks go out to Ben, Tony, Jerry and the entire staff of Ben’s.” – Marlene and Dan B.
“I can’t imagine trusting any other contractor with my biggest asset, top shelf best in class!” – Jonathan C.
“I know Ben and Tony from their volunteering for Friends of Freeport, a group that helps people still in distress from Sandy. They donate their time, expertise, and sometimes their machinery and at least one of them is there every weekend. Am I surprised that a contractor would get a letter like this? Usually , yes, but with Ben’s, not at all.” – Carl P.
“Bravo. Our industry needs more companies like yours.” – Liam F.
“With all of the NY Rising behind me and the award of the first half of my rant I was able to give Ben and the team the green light to move ahead. Move ahead they did at a lightning speed! A schedule was put in place, visits were made to the house in preparation and then the demolition of the outside began. The crew was at my home for two days and at the end of each day they cleaned up immaculately. I truly felt that they treated my property with the same level of respect they would treat their own, it was refreshing to experience.” [excerpt] Joseph F. July 8, 2014
