Prime locations and a dedicated team

At Benchmark, our mission is to set the highest standard in home construction through uncompromising quality and exceptional customer care. Our Benchmark process is a simple one: It starts with our ability to find and secure prime locations, utilize first-rate materials, and attract top-notch suppliers and tradespeople. It continues with our thorough knowledge of the best practices in new home construction. And it culminates with a warranty procedure that is second to none—ensuring that we have built the very best home for the best value.

We are at the cutting edge of many trends, and have become experts at applying best practices and new styles to single-family dwellings. This expertise doesn’t come overnight. We have a loyal veteran staff who are talented and experienced, many of whom have been with Benchmark for 15 years or more.
