Kathleen and I highly recommend the services of Gary BenDavid Builders.  In our research for a General Contractor/Builder on the island we had the opportunity to interview numerous candidates.  Mr BenDavid stood out for a number of reasons. He is island born and bred, packs a solid reputation for quality and integrity, and is extremely efficient and methodical in his work.  Once the project commenced, we knew we had made the right choice. Mr BenDavid takes a ‘hands-on' approach to the project and employs an outstanding team of professionals, who are not only good technicians, they are always on schedule and always friendly. 

To say that Mr BenDavid takes pride in his work is an understatement.  He will not settle for second-best, and rarely will he compromise in the pursuit of excellence.  Mr Ben David is both practical and a visionary.  He brings a wealth of experience to any project and is able to assist the homeowner in achieving their overall objectives.  

Mr BenDavid stands fully behind his workmanship and that of his entire Team.

We highly recommend Gary BenDavid Builders for any new home or renovation plans on the island of Martha's Vineyard.

The energy and enthusiasm of Gary BenDavid is what sold us on his company for our  Oak Bluffs home renovations.  It's obvious how much he loves what he does, and that translates to impeccable quality in the execution of his craft. He consistently goes the extra mile to make sure everything turns out just right, from the overall plan to the smallest detail. He possesses the right combination of listening to what is wanted, and making suggestions based on his expertise, to ensure the job gets done right.  His crew are competent and friendly.  We have not only a 'new' home that we're enjoying immensely, but a new friend as well!

"Trying to manage renovations from 500 miles away is everyone's worst nightmare. It wasn't just renovations actually. It was the deconstruction of a house literally down to 2 x 4s, removal of a roof and the addition of a third floor. It was a total makeover inside and out.

Gary not only did an amazing job but he also made it amazingly manageable.

Gary was more than the general contractor.  The craftsmanship was so superb that while there was a short punch list at the end I really had not a single complaint or "do over" requests.  He skillfully executed the plan of the architect but along the way he made numerous recommendations from window and door trim to installing the hot tub in a different location so that you have a water view to enclosing a deck with a gazebo type top.  He took a rather ordinary house in an extraordinary setting and created a masterpiece.

Doing very nearly a teardown of my house and adding and rebuilding 3 floors, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 3 decks,  sidewalks, landscaping and new everything including  wiring, walls, appliances, cabinets, countertops, a garage and large and beautiful screened in deck/gazebo was not without some cost.  But it was a bargain for what I now have.  (And to be fair, a lot of the costs were driven by my choices of marble, cabinets etc.)

If I ever do this again it will be with Gary.  He is a master craftsman who demands perfection from everyone working with and for him.  He was a great contractor, advocate and therapist!"

"Lisa and I highly recommend Gary BenDavid Builders. We really appreciated Gary's professionalism and the craftsmanship of his team and sub-contractors on our home. It turned out better than we could have ever imagined.

Gary was a big help in the design and making our living space more functional. He had great ideas that made a dramatic improvement in the flow and feel of the house. His attention to detail is what makes our house special.

Since we were not on the island full time, Gary made himself available to answer questions, handle issues and keep us up to date on the progress of house on a routine basis. When we e-mailed or called our questions were answered promptly.

The best attribute of Gary is that he was able to stay on our tight schedule and on budget. He has such a good working relationship with his team and sub-contractors that he could ensure they were on task, maintaining the agreed upon estimates and budget.

Working with Gary was the best construction experience we have ever had."

"At Gary BenDavid Builders my wife Nancy and I got more than we bargained for. We expected quality results, but the care and thought process that our projects received were above and beyond what one typically might expect from a home building contractor. Gary and his team consistently demonstrate a willingness to save money, to recognize an improvement opportunity, and to do all in their power to ensure their customers are happy. Communication is never a problem with Gary BenDavid Builders, and frankly Nancy and I couldn't be happier with our choice in home builders. It is with great delight that we wholeheartedly recommend Gary BenDavid Builders to you for your needs."
