“When we were told our house was to be rebuilt after the earthquake, we decided to look for a builder we liked and had confidence in. After looking at about a dozen companies, we settled on Benchmark Homes. We were very impressed with Perry, who we saw at the Show Home. He talked to us about the homes that Benchmark build, the process of rebuild and generally made us feel like very valued clients. We were not looking forward to going through the process of having the house we had retired to knocked down and rebuilt, it had been a stressful time for us. We found that everyone in Benchmark were extremely helpful, and understanding of what we were going through. We spent a lot of time going through what we wanted in the home with Perry, and how we wanted the best use of the space we had. He listened to us at all times, something we had not found in other building companies. The process of rebuilding was made easy for us at every stage.
The standard of work was exceptional throughout the whole build, with quality tradesmen, and we were kept informed at all times of what was happening, including photos, these were really appreciated. We had an exceptional Project Manager in Ben; any problems we encountered were swiftly attended to and rectified without any fuss. The completed house is a dream come true. It is a pleasure to live in it. We would certainly recommend Benchmark, and have done so since we started the process of rebuilding. People we have spoken to and have seen our home are very impressed with it, and in some cases very jealous of how we have been treated, they have not been so lucky. Once again we would like to say a big thank you to everyone in Benchmark for giving us a beautiful home to spend the rest of retirement in.”
