I wanted to drop you a note to express my appreciation for another job well done by you and your team.

As always, you took care of every detail and offered suggestions and ideas that I would have never considered on my own. They usually resulted in changes that made my project turn out much better than anticipated, with little or no cost impact.

As has been the case with the previous projects at my home, it has been a pleasure to participate with you and your guys throughout. As previously, I almost felt that you guys became members of the family with professional and courteous behavior mixed with the comfortable feeling whenever a question came up. With my wife always being pleased with the results, I can’t go wrong with you guys.

My experience with Benchmark has always been one of extreme satisfaction with the attention to detail that is evident in everything that you are involved with. From the quality of material to ensuring that we are pleased with every detail as various evolutions are to begin, as they proceed and upon completion. I always somehow feel that I wish that I had more money to add “projects” that Benchmark could do. As the latest one, the “Zen House” is coming to the end, as usual I am anticipating the “next” round of fun with you guys.

For anyone considering using Benchmark for their project, I can’t be any more of an advocate for Eric and his crew. I am fairly detail oriented and expect quality performance when spending my hard earned money and have never been the least bit disappointed by any of the four projects that Eric has handled at my home on Mt. Helix. Before hiring Benchmark the first time, I interviewed many builders for my 1600 sq. ft. addition, which included a 2 story portion. I went with Eric because he seemed to want it more than the others and it turned out to be a great decision on my part.

Thanks again Eric for a job well done. You may use me as a reference and if a prospective client wants to talk with me, I’d be happy to discuss your performance on my projects.

I had my master bedroom and bathroom redone.  I had the ceiling scraped, painting in the bedroom and bathroom and had a tile shower and floor put in. I had a new recessed light put in the bathroom, all new fixtures and a new cabinet.  They are efficient and kept me updated on what was going on each day.  They cleaned up each day and kept their supplies neat.  They took precautions to keep my floor and furniture from damage.  I would highly recommend Benchmark Builders.

My wife and I have been living in our new home now for six years. Thanks to their skills, honesty, reliability, and their unwavering commitment to get the job done Eric and Gary Gassaway of Benchmark Builders made it happen. Their friendly consultation on the myriad questions that arose put order to what seemed to us at times an almost impossible task.  They established excellent working relationships with the city’s building inspector, our building engineer and suppliers and sub-contractors.  Would we use Benchmark Builders again?  YES!  Would we recommend them to others?  Absolutely!
Thanks, Eric and Gary; drop by when you’re in our neighborhood.

Benchmark Builders,
Thank you for the extremely professional work you recently completed on our major remodel in Del Mar.  The craftsmanship both on the exterior (hardy board) siding and all the (doug fir) tongue and grove walls of the interior look amazing!  Your tireless attention to detail and daily progress was much appreciated. We absolutely love our new home!  I would highly recommend your company to anyone. Dan Miller



I’m very happy with the work Benchmark Builders did remodeling my bathroom. From start to finish Benchmarks staff were very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and up front with pricing. Benchmark Builders are defiantly not one of these fly by night construction companies that I heard and feared about. I would highly recommend Benchmark Builders to anyone. Thank you Benchmark, we love our bathroom!

I just want to write a note and express my appreciation for the exceptional work that was done during the remodel of my home. The professionalism that was demonstrated by Eric and Gary was far more then what I ever expected. I was acting as my own general contractor during the project and even though Benchmark Builders was contracted to complete the framing and finish work Eric & Gary made themselves available and provided advice and guidance whenever I had contracting issues. Additionally, they provided me with some recommendations for subcontractors and I’m here to say they only associate themselves with skilled professionals of their caliber. My experience with Benchmark Builders was outstanding. I am reminded of their attention to detail everyday as I look at the finishes on my home. If I ever have another project like this Benchmark will be the first and only company I call.
