“It’s rare in any service industry to find a level of commitment, responsibility, and responsiveness that I discovered working with Benchmark builders. Not only were they considerate of my schedule and demands in planning the project, they were proactive in suggesting solutions that enhanced the outcome without significantly impacting the budget. But the ultimate was when they advised me of a $60. overpayment on an $18,000 bill. I look forward to working with them on a future project.”

— G. Blanton, Wilton
