Meet Rosario

Rosario is the owner of Benchmark Building Services Inc. He has been building for over twenty-five years. During his 25 years of building, Rosario has had to figure out ways to solve various challenges that have presented themselves in projects along the way. And rest assured,they always arise. Rosario says that this is what separates the pros from the rest. The pros bring a creative problem-solving ability that has been hard won from years of experience. This, he claims, helps him solve problems in a timely and cost-effective manner while keeping his client projects on track and on budget.

Rosario is known as somewhat of an expert. In fact, many contractors drop by his office to chat about new materials or to ask about how to deal with a certain problem they are having—such is Rosario's reputation among his colleagues. He is known to be tenacious about keeping up on the latest building materials, tools, products, and trends.

Rosario is a passionate builder and loves it when his customers are delighted with the end results. He also loves it that his son Antonio has joined him in the family business.

Testimonial for Cutek Wood Protection Oil

cutek on a pergola

I'm a huge fan of Cutek Wood Protection Oil. Ross introduced it to me 2 years ago and I've recommended it to all of my customers and used it ever since. It applies easily and evenly and really enhances the wood grain and colour. The oil penetrates well and seals the wood better than anything I've used. It comes in great colours and its UV protection barrier really works. In the picture above we've used it on this pergola to enhance its look, AND more importantly, to protect it from the elements.
