Judeo-Christian values.

Tom has worked for me in both Georgia and North Dakota. He has completed several turnkey projects for me in North Dakota helping me with design, pricing, and construction. He spent over a year at my ranch, in which time; he built a Chapel, a very nice cabin from scratch, and did a total remodel of a home. He has worked through the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter with great integrity, workmanship, and pride.

In Georgia, Tom has worked on projects large and small, again with great integrity, workmanship, and pride.

I consider Tom a friend and someone that I will work with again.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

"True Craftsmen"

My wife and I are extremely happy with the work of Tom and Benchmark Builders. We chose Tom because we believed he had a vision and could…

help us achieve our vision. Tom and his team are true craftsman and take great pride in the finished work and worked with us in a collaborative process to over achieve our expectations.

A few times during the project of our kitchen remodel, basement finishing and enclosing porch, if we didn’t like the way something looked, Tom’s team happily changed all of  these items without fuss. Tom’s team also found and fixed faulty construction issues from the time our house was originally built. Most importantly, they fixed things that were fine with because they weren’t happy and didn’t want their name associated with anything that wasn’t perfect. Again, these guys are true craftsmen.

Each day Tom’s team cleaned up their mess and each weekend did, even more, to make sure the areas they had worked in were clean. We trust Tom and had no issues with them being in the house with us. I give Benchmark Builders my highest recommendation.

and craftsman, which resulted in our new favorite part of the house. He had no problem carrying out our plan to remove walls and incorporate rock arches where the walls once stood. His crew was a joy to work with and cleaned up thoroughly at the end of each day. Our basement looks incredible and he was able to accomplish all of our ideas within our budget while even hand making the cabinetry!

We highly recommend Tom Carter and BBI and would be happy to provide a reference. Thanks Tom!

The ability of Benchmark to provide design/concept and thoroughly discuss the project prior to breaking ground gave us a sense of security not often found in this industry. Our outdoor area is impressive, so well built, and looks like it has always been a part of the home. Words cannot express how pleased we are with the work done by your team. They are true professionals and we look forward to our next project with Benchmark Builders!
