Chris and I just wanted to thank you for all
your hard work on our home. The end results exceeded our
expectations. Not only does the house look updated, but the
new features give it such character too! The workmanship is
fabulous since you took your time and also corrected things
you noticed along the way.
You were such a professional throughout the process and gave
us some great recommendations to consider. You communicated
to us throughout the process so we knew exactly what was
going on. You also accommodated our hectic schedule during
the appointments and construction. We really appreciate your

Thanks to you Ben and Your Crew,
1. Thanks for all the detail and professionalism with
the siding job.

3. We have received all sorts of good compliments from
neighbors, friends, and relatives.

without anyone having to stand around supervising every day.

questions to them to know if all was ok; actually it looks
perfect to me!
If you ever need a reference, please do not hesitate to ask.
Don't forget to say many thanks to your crew.
My best and kindest regards to all,
We want to thank you for the beautiful siding job you did on
our 3 car garage. We only wish we had known about you when
we had our house sided years ago. We were very impressed
with you and your helper Mike, from start to finish. You
promptness and doing exactly everything you said you would.
You don't find too many people like you that take actual
pride in their work anymore. Feel free to have anyone call

P.S. We will be calling you for windows!
We had our 1929 home sided by Siding By Ben a few
weeks ago. Our neighbors, family, and also us feels it
makes all the difference in its appearance. We are honored
to advertise Ben's siding business with the sign in the
front yard. My brother from out of town said the
siding was applied like an artist. Ben's workers were
very fast with outstanding workmanship. All the debris was
cleaned up and hauled away. I would recommend "Siding
We recently had our 1925 home entirely sided with new
vinyl siding. We received three estimates on the job, we
chose Ben. The old aluminum siding was in terrible shape. We
wanted with keep with the Craftsman character of the home.
At Ben’s suggestion, we went with 4” Dutch Lap siding in
Wicker (beige) with white aluminum flashing and trim. For a
nice touch, Ben matched the color of the gutters with the
After recently having a terrible experience with another
contractor, we were quite nervous over the end result. We
can be a contractor’s worst nightmare as we tend to be
perfectionists. Because our careers have us both involved in
“Total Quality” and customer satisfaction we consequently,
expect others to have the same focus. Siding by Ben did just
that! The work was done in a very professional and
workmanship-like manner and the craftsmen that did the
siding showed up regularly and promptly and worked until
they got the job done. The crew also did a great job of
cleanup. They were always pleasant and seemed to take much
pride in their work.
Several neighbors have commented on our home and how
wonderful it looks. We just smile and say "Thanks". We were
happy to know that we picked the right contractor. Since
then we have and will continue to recommend Siding by Ben.

Lisa and I would like to take this opportunity to extend our

fascia, soffit and vinyl siding on our house. The house
looks brand new!!! The work was completed on-time as planned

I wanted to follow up with you regarding the recent
window replacements by your installers. As when we had
the front windows done last year, the improvement in comfort
is really noticeable, especially with the very cold weather
we have been experiencing.
Again, I am very pleased with the careful and
conscientious workmanship of your crew. They do such a
good job not only installing, but cleaning up. I had
to look at the windows to even tell which room was
completed! There was no mess or debris left behind.
We have also had many compliments on the siding you
replaced last year. A number of people have commented
on how nice it looks and of course we have passed along your
Keep up the good work!
Fellow Home Owner,
I am very pleased with my new siding and vinyl windows.
The house looks better than new. Ben was very
helpful and insightful in finding a specific color and style
for my home. The finished product was even better than I
envisioned. I would strongly recommend Ben, as he
gives the extra effort needed to make your house special.
Again - Very Pleased!
Thank You Ben!!

To Whom It May Concern:
We are writing this letter to
formally recognize the outstanding efforts of Ben Capriato.
We met Ben as a result of an expansion of our kitchen.
Due to a problem in matching siding color (our previous
siding, aluminum, was over 20 years old and no longer
manufactured) we were forced to undertake residing the
entire house. Rather than use dent-prone aluminum
siding we decided to switch to vinyl siding. What we
did not anticipate is that vinyl siding is prone to movement
(expansion/contraction) based on outside temperature.
As a result all types of vinyl siding requires a "J
channel" for the siding pieces to die into. This
issue presented a terrible problem for us. Our home
has beautiful cornice detail which would have been
significantly degraded with the use of the manufacturer
supplied "J channel". To this add the fact that our
house dates from 1870 with lots of quirky corners and
multiple elevations. It quickly became apparent that
residing the house was going to involve a lot more ingenuity
than anyone envisioned.
We are both very pleased to say Ben was more than up to
the challenge and was a delight to work with. He was
instrumental in resolving many complex design issues and was
even willing to rework areas if a better solution surfaced
down the road. As for the fit and finish, it is simply
I would also like to highlight Ben's work ethic.
Many nights Ben was at our home until dusk and worked most
Saturdays while our project was underway. The entire
time he was by himself. This is a man who shows up
when he says he will be there and does what he says he will
do or what you ask of him. In my business my
word is my bond. It is extremely refreshing to find an
individual in the building trades who lives by the same
One final comment: Ben has a very pleasant personality.
This makes him very approachable which was very valuable to
us when any fine tuning was needed on the siding. He
always greeted our requests/concerns with a very willing
attitude to accommodate us. This again was an
invaluable service to us.
Needless to say, both my wife and I would HIGHLY
recommend Ben Capriato should you have the need for his
services. His craftsmanship, ability to think "out of
the box" to solve the problems, and "can do" attitude have
made him a pleasure to know and work with.

I would like to take this opportunity to
recommend Ben Capriato as your siding contractor of choice.
Ben's work started and finished on time as originally
promised. the highest regard to quality and excellence
in workmanship shows in the finished product. We have
been delighted with our experience and would not hesitate
to give our approval and endorsement.

My name is Rachel Socha and we had windows
and doors installed by Ben. We love our windows and
patio door so much, they are GORGEOUS! We used to have
a really old picture window and beat up patio door, and it
let so much air through and froze up in the winter. Not
anymore, our new windows have warmed up our rooms and let so
much more light in. Ben arrived at our house the day
of install to make sure everything was in order, greeted us
and assured us everything was going in on time... and
everything was! The team of installers who came to install
them was great. They were really kind to my kids,
their clean up job was excellent. The even vacuumed my
carpet and wiped down my floors when they were working! Now
we are even doing more of our windows through Ben and highly
recommend him to anyone in our friends and family network.
Thanks so much guys!!
With great pleasure,

Debbie and I would like to thank you for
the great job you did installing our new energy efficient
windows and vinyl siding. At first we were somewhat
apprehensive because your quote was significantly lower than
the other estimates we had gotten. But you came so
highly recommended by our friend Kenny that we decided to
take a chance. Well we learned that high quality work
does not necessarily mean high prices. We couldn't be
more pleased with both the process and the results.
You and your workmen were extremely professional and
courteous. You did everything that you said you would,
and you did it when you said you would. After the job
was completed, everything was cleaned up and hauled away.
The new windows have made a world of
difference when it comes to heating our home. No more
foggy, drafty, rattling windows. The vinyl siding
looks fantastic! It really enhances the appearance of our
house. An additional unexpected benefit is that our
home is much more soundproof now than it used to be.
Also, the new gutters and 5 inch downspouts eliminated our
previous overflow problem. Again, thank you very much
and feel free to use us as a reference if you like.
We would like to commend you and your
associates on the professional craftsmanship and customer
service you provided us during our recent home improvement.
The siding on our home not only looks great, but we look
forward to the benefits of better insulation and no
maintenance. It was a pleasure working with you from
our initial meeting through the finishing touches. We
appreciate that you were prompt, courteous, and kept our

Thank you for doing a beautiful quality
job on our new home. Your workmanship was outstanding
and the service excellent. You came highly recommended
to me and have lived up to your reputation.
Once again, thank you and I'll continue
to pass the word on!

I would like to thank you for the wonderful
job you did in siding and replacing gutters on our home.
We realize that with older homes like ours there are more
overhangs and eaves, not to mention additions, that make the
job much more challenging. We couldn't be more
pleased with the work that was done. You and your crew
were always polite and prompt. You were always there
when you said you would be, even when it was raining!
You removed and cleaned up all the debris from the old
siding and gutters, and the job was completed just when you
said it would be.
We had bids from several other companies but
none were as thorough in their initial presentation or as
fairly priced. You took the time to tell us a little
about yourself and your company and answer questions we had
about the siding. It is very reassuring to know there
are still other businesses like ours in which the owner pays
special care and attention to his customers. I would
happily recommend your top quality work to anyone.

Dear Mr. Capriato,
My husband and I would like to thank you and
your company for the improvement you made on our home.
We are very pleased and would be glad to recommend you for
being a man of his word and doing the things you promised.
We hope everyone is as pleased as we are with a job well

I would like to extend my appreciation to
Installations Unlimited for the excellent work your company
did siding my house. Vince, Gary and yourself worked
in a very professional and timely manner. Everything
from doing the little extras (extending the flashing, extra
trim work, etc.) to cleaning up was very well done. I
could not imagine another company putting in all the extra
effort that Installations Unlimited did for me. If you
company ever needs a reference feel free to let them contact
me. I would recommend your company to anyone. Thanks
again for a job well done!
This letter is a little thank you note to
say not only what a clean, nice looking vinyl siding job was
done at my house but also how professionally everything was
All the installation of siding on the gables
and dormers were done with care to make sure that they are
square with the roof lines and the frame of the house.
Caps around the windows and door casings showed concern for
the details, and the rakes and gutter boards were done
functionally and properly.
Even the materials were removed from the
yard in a timely manner.
Everything was completed as you originally
stated and when you stated that you thought it would be
done. Also, I appreciated the character and manners
your personnel showed in going about their chores - true
Please feel free to show my house to others
and to use my name as a reference should the opportunity
Very truly yours,
