Bennett Contracting, Inc., began in 1915 when Dan (D.A.) Bennett opened a plumbing shop in a rented garage in Delmar, NY. A railroad steam fitter, Bennett saw opportunities in servicing the new technology of the times: indoor plumbing and central heating. Family members joined the growing company after World War II. In 1976, Gregory Jackson, one of Bennett’s grandsons, was brought in to start the D.A. Bennett Insulation Company.
In 1984, Jackson and his business partner Paul Gutman expanded the company beyond plumbing, heating and insulation into a full-service home remodeling business and moved the company to its current location at 693 South Pearl Street in Albany, NY.
The Capital District’s number one home remodeling company, Bennett Contracting has expanded their services to include windows, siding, kitchens and baths. With more than 60 employees and an extensive service department, Bennett Contracting can handle any home improvement project a customer has in mind.
