Whole House Renovation/Addition

Founded in 1987 by Wilton native, Andrew Payne, Benchmark Builders offers meticulous general contracting services to southern Fairfield County, Connecticut. Andrew, an Expert Carpenter, has over 27 years of experience in the building industry.

When choosing Benchmark Builders, homeowners can expect streamlined services and communication.

  • Consultations scheduled within one business week
  • Detailed, timely proposals
  • Professionally staffed projects, with Andrew often on the job site
  • Dependable communications via onsite meetings, phone, and e-mail
  • Concise and organized proposals, invoices, and statements
  • Project/Product consultations and research
  • Personable and friendly service

Choosing the right builder for your project can be an overwhelming decision. Here are a few points to keep in mind when researching contractors:

  • Consider that this professional and his subcontractors may be in your home for a considerable length of time. You should feel at ease with the contractor.
  • Do you feel comfortable with this person around your family?
  • Will you be able to rest assured at night and while you’re at work that the right decisions are being made and the project is running smoothly?

Keep in mind that the ability to communicate effectively and finding the right “chemistry” between homeowner and builder can be just as important as finding the right price.

“This is a small token of appreciation for all your hard work on our beautiful home. I am especially grateful that you listened to me and more importantly, not only heard what I was saying, but discussed it in a way that was professional and thoughtful. The end result of our many discussions led to a perfect result. Eric and I are also appreciative of the high level of sub-contractors you work with and their sensitivity and deference to someone’s living space. What could have been a very difficult period of having the addition put on with the daily presence of workers was surprisingly easy. They were all gentlemen and very neat! It was a long journey, 2 years! We will always be grateful for this lovely home. We are so happy to be here and enjoy it every day and continue to admire the craftsmanship in every room. Many, many thanks.” — Trish Lobenfeld
