“Benchmark carried out some repointing and stone repair work at St Peter’s Hayton – a medieval Grade I Listed Church. The work was carried out to high standard, was very neatly finished, and blended perfectly with the existing walls.  Dominic showed a great interest in his work and I am happy to recommend him wholeheartedly for such projects.”
