My experience with Benchmark and Geoff and all his professional employees was extremely spectacular! The quality of work was beyond my expectations. They also listened attentively to my suggestions and accomplished all the situations I requested. My laundry room was not a simple remodeling project. It was a total gutting of the room including moving the hot water heater from the first floor to the...

After a very prompt response to the Angie's List inquiry, and a plan to connect via phone, Geoff has never bothered to answer multiple calls, nor take the time to courtesy to reply to 3 different voice mails left over a 2 week period. I am giving a C, only because I have no idea if the work would have been done well or not. Too bad that a simple 10-second call would have been fine, but at this poi...

The work quality was very good. The sunroom came out very well and looks great. We had some custom needs that Geoff accommodated ie we wanted to add a gas range and a bar countertop around it. Even the Inspector and the folks who visited us complimented on the quality of the sunroom work. The work could have been completed a tad sooner but in the overall scheme of things it was more important that...

Project was never started due to non-responsiveness from contractor.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had finalized a detailed quote with Geoff and were excited to work with him as he seemed very knowledgeable and professional. Unfortunately, when it came time to discuss start date for the project he stopped communicating with me and never responded to email, phone, or text messages.

Everything went well until about a month after the project was completed in May 2016 when the roof started to leak. The area affected continued to spread while we worked with Geoff for 2 years to have it repaired. Unfortunately, Geoff had hired his brother-in-law to install the roof, who wasn’t qualified. For the past 6 months we have been contacting Geoff to have the repair work completed by eith...

Geoff and his team, (including his dad who has been doing concrete work for 40 years) from Benchmark did an outstanding job start to finish. Geoff, who has a degree in Architecture, began the planning of the rebuilt structure with me that included new features to preserve and strengthen it. Among the new features were the addition of concrete wings under the walkway and a drainage system to siphon...

The project went very well. I contracted for both design and build and Geoff's plans went through the Lake County review process without any changes. The project went very smoothly, with no change orders or extras. Minor changes were required as we went through the process and we both agreed on all easily. I and a civil engineer and contract for lots of projects. I value the contractor's integrity...

The entire project could not have gone better. Geoff is responsive, has great ideas and was true to his schedule. The workmanship is outstanding- I was extremely pleased with the outcome and it was worth every penny I paid. Speaking of cost, Benchmark was very competitive, but what sold me was the first meeting with Geoff- he had good ideas, relayed experience and provided a realistic timeframe. I...

The entire process was awesome. Geoff, owner, is the best contractor I have ever worked with. Timely, honest, and had great ideas. I had signed contracts with 3 other firms to start the work, and all of them backed out for various reasons. I wish I had come across Benchmark Design Build Remodel Inc first- it would have saved me so much time, and effort. Since I had researched so many other contrac...

The project started well. The progress slowed down, and there were some items that needed correcting, like the height of the bathroom sink. In retrospect, I should have checked the work done each day in order to identify needed corrections in real-time. I would have appreciated more communication from Benchmark regarding the project and progress but I can say we are happy with the result and have ...
