They did some extra stuff that they really didn't have to do, but I guess it made sense for them to do it to get the job to look right, so they just did it. They did some extra painting that we didn't talk about. I think when they saw what was going on, they decided that to make it look like it should, they would do it. I have to hand it to them because it was extra. They had to fix the door frame, and they had to paint the trim and the railing—it was stuff that I couldn't get to because it was too high. They did the best. I would probably recommend them again for sure, and I would hire them again. I would give them an A+.
Benchmark Painting did a good job. I think it was painting our garage at the beach and then doing some smaller work around the house. They were recommended to us by one of our neighbors. They were easy to work with—no issues. I would say they're an A+. It was excellent; no complaints.
They were great, they were very cordial, and they were very professional and willing to listen to our comments and suggestions. They were willing to accommodate our requests. They painted the inside and outside of the house. We interviewed three companies, and for our price range and the professional criteria that we wanted, they seemed to fit. They're A+.
They did good work—they painted a bathroom. They were referred to me. I would give them an A.
They were on time, they were very clean, and the service was good. The job was painting the ceiling. I would grade them an A.
They were on time, and they painted my shutters on the outside. They were very clean and very courteous, and they picked up after themselves. I had a good experience. I had the Best Pick Reports book that was mailed to my house, and that's where I found them. They're in the area. I'd say they get an A.
Benchmark was definitely very good. They were efficient, and they did a very nice job. I have been very pleased. Also, they made suggestions and gave me ideas. They did all the outside painting, including the garage, my doors, and my shutters. I felt their representative was courteous and up front. It was just a very professional encounter all the way around—A+.
They were professional, and they did a good job. They painted the ceiling and walls of a very large room. The guy who came to the house to give me the estimate was wonderful. I would grade them as an A+. They were excellent.
The quality of Benchmark's work was excellent. I had the entire interior of my house painted, and they did the trim outside. They were very customer service oriented, and their project manager made sure everything was done the way I wanted. They're an A.
Benchmark did interior painting. We've used them a couple of times, and there have been no issues or reasons to call them back for anything. The communication was fine, and there were no problems. They were excellent. The first time we used them, they had been recommended to us by a friend who had used them and was quite happy. I'd give them an A+.
