Benchmark Building Services Appears on Deck Wars

By Rosario Ungaro

Rosario on Deck WarsFor those of you who missed it, here is the episode of Deck Wars that Benchmark Building Services Inc. was featured on: The Ultimate Kids Deck.  This war is a family feud. Two father/son teams go head-to-head to build the ultimate deck for kids. We had a great time.  Regardless of the outcome, working along side my son gave me the greatest pleasure.

A word from Rosario…

Our Blog is about sharing some of what we have learned along the way. (Many contractors even call us for ideas or advice.) We hope it is informative and shows our commitment to continuous learning—something we do so we can bring the very latest and best to our customers. 

You've probably heard the phrase: 

"Some people have twenty-five years of experience. Others have one year of experience, twenty-five times over." 

If a contractor doesn't stay up-to-date on the latest building codes, trends, styles, tools, materials, and products, they'll soon find themselves in the latter category. We work hard to make sure that we are not. We regularly talk with our suppliers, go to industry trade shows, and share information and ideas with our peers to make sure that we stay on top of our game and can continue to bring you the very best in building craftsmanship and knowledge.

I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about your next building project.
