About Benmar Corporation
Benmar is a family owned, home improvement and remodeling business started in 1963 by Marvin Gubin. In 1972, Brad Gubin joined Benmar and has worked daily with his father until recently. Marvin continues to work but is finally taking some much deserved time off.
Benmar provides quality, custom home improvements including awnings, decks, doors, screen rooms, sunrooms and windows. Our vendors have been carefully selected based on the quality of their product, pricing, and the reliability and efficiency of their manufacturing, production and shipping. Warranty terms vary by vendor and by product but Benmar always provides service after the sale.
We guarantee our installation/labor for one year. We are comfortable providing a one year guarantee on our installation/labor because we do not use subcontractors to install our products. Our workmen are our employees and each has been with us for many years. We see and speak with them daily about each job they are assigned and we are always available if they have a question or a problem. We pay full benefits for our employees and they are loyal and trustworthy to us and to our customers. They are courteous and respectful. They do quality work, are reliable and clean up the job site when their work is complete.
We consider quality, honesty and integrity the key to good business. We have kept our business a manageable size in order to retain the ability to provide exemplary customer service. We have a long history of satisfied customers, most of whom are repeat and referral customers. Please read the comments made by several of our clients on the Testimonials page.
Marvin and Brad also strongly believe in educating the homeowner. We want our customers to be informed about our products and how those products fit their needs. We will take the time needed to fully explain our product and the benefits of the product. While we always want your business, if our product will not fill your need or suit your purpose, we will not sell it to you. We will provide options available to you in meeting your needs and we will help point you in the right direction to fulfill those needs.

We welcome you to visit our showroom between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We do advise that you call first. Because we are a small business, there are occasions when we have a previously scheduled customer appointment or are out of the showroom at a customers job site. We hope that you will understand that on-site, accurate measurements are critical to product ordering, correct installation and, of course, pricing.
We will also happily meet with you after 4:30 p.m. or on Saturdays, by appointment.
