I have built with Benchmark once before in Northern Utah. And I must say the rating below really surprised me. I feel rather bad...not about the Builder but about the the one who gave the rating below. I loved my experience with Benchmark Homes. Plus what is said below is a lot of hearsay. Benchmark is Awesome! It is really hard to find a builder that holds to their word and quality. Benchmark did just that. I know through experience that sometimes it is just hard to please some people. If one thing goes wrong out of a list of 100 good things, it's the one or two things they remember and can't let go. I had a good friend build with Benchmark in 2011 and they loved it. They got what they wanted and the design center was great! Benchmark came back a fixed everything under warranty and a really cool thing was that the appraiser said that because it was built by Benchmark Homes they shouldn't have any problem with the appraisal. I have a family member that worked with Benchmark Homes and knows their financial status. That is another reason we went with them. Benchmark Homes has been building homes in Utah for about 40 years and has little overhead. They don't spend money on Billboards, magazines, radio ads, or even fancy fliers. I was told that Benchmark builds slow and strong rather than fast and thin. Many builders sell and trade properties to other builders. I would be very careful to say that a company is struggling because of this or that. The bottom line is that nobody knows except Benchmark...So ask Benchmark. Benchmark is an honest company! If there is any question get a second opinion from the company in question. Usually one side is very biased so get both opinions. Oh, and by the way BBB shows that they have an A+ rating.

Read reviews before signing with them. Did not realize most good ones were a couple of years old. They may have once been a great builder, but I think they are bottom of the barrel. The price and people seemed really great until we signed.

Worst company and people I know. They do not honor warranties, they make promises and never keep them. They are in debt up to their eye balls and foreclosing homes in our neighborhood. They owe their sub- contractors money, now the subs own the empty lots around us. They have argued with home owners over the phone and will not budge on anything. Those who have built with Benchmark in the past couple years in our area have carried their own loan because Benchmark can't get a loan. The houses they have built are just sitting empty for over a year. Prices are to high......what else can I tell you?.... Do Not use this company to build with.

I thought I would just pass on to other the great experience I had with Benchmark Homes of Utah. They have an awesome set-up. The reason I decided to go with Benchmark Homes was the quality of construction. Benchmark built some of our friends home and we were interested in asking around. So, all of our friends were very pleased at what they got with Benchmark. The price was excellent and the typical cost cutting techniques other builders make, Benchmark didn't take part of. They even told us to look at other homes built by other builders and sure enough we noticed them. They treated us with honesty and integrity and were very up front on everything. Though we did here some negative feedback from others, we researched the issues and the negative feedback was very one-sided and often biased. I feel sorry for those that talk negative about others. I am here to say that if I were displeased with Benchmark then I simply wouldn't say anything, but I am saying something because Benchmark Homes is a good company and I pass on good, not bad. Go Benchmark!

Just thought I would return the favor to our Builder. We moved into our home about 2 months ago and have had no anger or frustration with our home. We love it! We were able to make our home unique by customizing the main floor area. Benchmark was the builder we decided to go with because of the 30+ years of experience. The Benchmark agent was willing to drive us to the house were interested in and actually show us the differences between their home and the home next door that another builder had built. The pitch was higher, there was more brick, more character to the home and most of all there was no cutting corners. We new what we were getting before hand and that is what we got. Thank you Benchmark for our lovely home. A happy wife = a happy family and home!

Just moved into our new home. The whole process with Benchmark Homes was very good. We shopped around to different builders in the area and Benchmark was willing to beat their prices. Once they beat their prices we were worried about the quality. During the construction period we were amazed at how well the construction was. We had built before (twice) and had a hard time with the companies we worked with. Benchmark's foreman was right on top of things. The home was build within the quoted time of 3-4 months. Benchmark pays attention to quality and customer satisfaction. I would highly recommend Benchmark Homes in Utah.

I love our home! This is the 3rd time we have built with Benchmark. The home was completed very nicely and when people come over to the house they just love it! The neat thing about the building process was that we knew right up front what the cost would be and how the home would be built. We has a preconstruction meeting and during the meeting we went over all the costs and the featrures. It was really nice because at the meeting everyone was on the same page. The home went up rather quickly and the construction foreman (dean) was great. Even after we moved in the home has a few things that needed fixing. The foreman was quick to respond and fix the problems. We have now been living ino our home for some time and there hasn't been anything wrong. We got into the home knowing that builders were struggling, but I knew that Benchmark would do all they could to help us. I give my recommendation to others that the Benchmark Homes experience is well worth it. They don't cut the corners and hide costs that so many other builiders cut and hide. They have a great warranty. GO BENCHMARK!!

We just moved into a new benchmark homes in Clinton. The home has been great. Benchmark worked well with us despite having some "Lending" frustrations. This however wasn't Benchmarks fault. The home is my wifes favorite. We have had little problems and the little things that came up was address very quickly and resolved. Benchmark treated us with great respect and care. I recommend this builder.

Cons: Not any that come to mind

Do not deal with this builder!!! They do not honor their warrantees, and their customer service stinks!

We bought a Benchmark home in 2007. Within two weeks of moving into our home, we started to experience foundation issues with the cement skim coat and plaster bubbling, peeling, and cracking. Within the first 5 months, we also experienced cracking stucco issues. We immediately reported the problems to Benchmark, and Benchmark agreed IN WRITING to fix the issues. We continually hounded them over a period of months, and were continually told they would make the repairs to the foundation and stucco. We've now been in our home for just over a year, and the problem with the foundation has not been fixed and Benchmark now refuses to make the repairs and honor their warrantee and written agreements.

Regarding the stucco issue: Benchmark did send out the sub-contractor to "fix" the stucco issue. The patch looks worse than the original problem. Benchmark refuses to correct the stucco issue as they state the patch is within "industry standard" and there is nothing more they will do. Once you buy a Benchmark home, they will take no pride in doing quality repairs in the event you luck out and get them to honor any of their commitments.

If you are looking to purchase a home, DO NOT BUILD WITH, OR BUY FROM BENCHMARK! They have absolutely no integrity, and pride themselves in vague and empty promises. They do not honor their warrantees regarding the more expensive repair issues. I regret not speaking with other Benchmark homeowners in our area , nor becoming aware of Benchmark's unsatisfactory rating with a national consumer/business intermediary organization before buying our home. All the Benchmark homeowners we have spoken with in our area also have nothing but sour experiences with this builder.

Unless you have a fat wallet, and plan on covering so-called "warrantee covered" repairs at your own expense, think twice before buying from Benchmark. Beware!

Benchmark Homes has been great to work with. I have now lived in my home for more than a year and haven't had any problems with the home. One interesting thing I found with benchmark homes is that they are always trying to improve. They have a great home warranty and excellent value. They seem to be a solid company that holds true to what many people have said to me...that "benchmark homes builds a great home." If I were to build agian I would most definately build with Benchmark Homes. I only wish they were in more locations. I have heard they are expanding and continuing to build a great home. One neat thing is that many of the employees are customers and that just shows to me how well they take care of people. GO BENCHMARK!!!

Benchmark Homes surpassed my expectations when they built my home. They were very informative, and professional. When I was shopping around for builders, other builders just handed me price sheets, and addresses where I could see what they built, they didn't give me very much attention. Benchmark sat down with us and spent two hours explaining our options we had with their various models and locations. We were very impressed. Its not often you get that kind of one on one service anymore. After we signed the paperwork, and got started, I was worried that my house wouldn't be done on time. We had sold our old house and were living with my wife's parents. And we were anxious to move, but they actually finished our house ahead of schedule. I've heard all kinds of horror stories about building a home, and was told to watch out for this, and be careful of that, and I was preparing for the worst, but I was plesantly surprised with the staff and the whole experience overall. The Benchmark sales agent kept me informed on a regular basis about the progress of ourhouse, and the head of construction was great to work with. My wife and I have been very happy with our new home, and would highly recommend to everyone Benchmark Homes.

Pros: Affordable, excellent quality

We purchased a home from them 2 years ago. We were seeking a lot, but after talking to over 20 realtors and contractors we contacted Benchmark. They sold us a lot. When we changed our minds to buying a home they bought the lot back with no penalties. Of course we have had minor problems with our home, but the Quality Assurance Rep took care of us in a very timely manner. They even helped us with a problem after the manufacturer's warranty expired! The painter, alarm installer,A/C repairman, and plasterer, all of whom took care of our problems, were very complimentary about working with Benchmark. If you have any questions, do as we did and talk to one of their agents.

I was surprised to find out that when I refinanced my home, the appraisal on the property jumped up considerably when I mentioned who the builder was. He mentioned the quality of product and name gives them an advantage over the market.
