I have Known Paul Benitez for 20 years. I have been in the construction business for nearly 40 years. I have extensive knowledge of construction processes and have used Benitez Concrete for all of my personal Concrete projects.
The reason is simple, “on time and on budget projects”!
Through the years Benitez has weathered many obstacles to complete over $60 thousand worth of work at my various projects, always Paul found a way to deliver.
I cannot give Benitez Concrete a higher rating! I will continue to use Benitez Concrete for all my concrete construction needs, I highly recommend Paul and his crew and will be happy to speak with any one if asked of Paul Benitez.
We would like to express my highest praise for Benitez Concrete Construction who did a marvelous job on our complex project. Our project had some unique and challenging issues. We designed our new house such that the most appropriate access to the garage needed to go right between our two large beautiful oak trees. In doing this were advised by our arborist not to have any part of the driveway touching the ground above the tree roots be within 10 feet of the tree. This require the construction of a bridge over the roots. We knew this would be a unique and challenging project with selection of the contractor the most important fact with in our control. We obtained 3 bids and were still concerned with whether we had found someone who could build us the bridge. We were lucky enough to learn about Paul Benitez through a friend who used him to build the foundation of her home. We met with Paul and spoke extensively about the technical challenges and time schedule of our project. Paul was very honest about his concerns about our challenges we liked this about him. It show he was thinking about the project and how best to accomplish it. He spoke knowledgeably about materials and design challenges. He had very good suggestions to improve the design which added to the ease of construction and the end use of the bridge. Paul’s bid was in the middle of the 4 bids we had received but because of the discussions we had with him we felt he was the most qualified of the four to handle the technical challenges of the project.
I worked daily with Paul on this project. He was always courteous and humble. We made a number of changes to the project during the construction. Paul was very patient with us and always had good input. He has a great eye for design because of the vast experience. He was constantly thinking about the process he was planning to use to construct the bridge. He demonstrated great knowledge of form design and concrete fabrication. He is very well connected with experts in the industry. He knew and had worked with our mechanical engineer who did the structural design of the bridge. His team of finishers did a fabulous job on the surface.
We highly recommend this company for any concrete project you might have in mind. He did a fabulous job.
After receiving two ridiculous bids from two contractors (one of which can be found here on Yelp), I found Benitez concrete. They had no feedback yet, I figured it was worth a shot. After talking with Paul over the phone for 45 minutes, I knew that I had found my guy. Paul was very knowledgable, timely, and professional. Everything that he said he would do, he did, or let me know instantly when unforeseen conditions arose.
I received the bid when he said that I would have it…it was right where I knew it should be.
Our project was a small project. I needed to have a 640sf Garage slab poured and some foundations for a new addition. After letting Paul know that he had the job, he told me that he would squeeze me into his pretty tight schedule. I was hoping that this would mean that the project would be done in two weeks after they started. Paul on the other hand meant something entirely different. He had his father and help on the job within a couple of days; five days later, they were done!!! The slab is beautiful, they left the job clean and orderly, and all and all did a great job.
I could not recommend these guys more highly!

Re: BCCI Performance
I am pleased to write this letter regarding CH Build’s experience with BCCI on the Davis Waldorf School Project. Please feel free to us this letter in seeking new work and as a testimonial on your website or other marketing materials.
The DWS project was an ambitious expansion of the existing school which involved a fast track schedule and the installation of 3 new custom modular buildings totaling 4000 SF. The project started in mid June of this year and had to be completed in time for the opening of the school on September 7, 2010. In addition to the schedule challenges involved, it was extremely critical that the foundations and flatwork be poured to tighter than typical tolerance given the simultaneous construction of the building modules in the factory. Their concrete foundation work was consistently plumb, level, and dimensionally accurate to within 1/8″, if not less. On set day the modular boxes aligned properly with all the foundation walls.
We were fortunate to have BCCI working with us on this project. Their field superintendent and crew started work as we were finishing the footing trench excavation and laid out the foundations literally to the exact dimensions provided to us in shop drawings from the modular manufacturer. In addition, CHB had the added benefit of their thorough dedication to getting it right. There were a number of times when their Super came to me for clarification of layout and dimensions confirmed their commitment to working to our tolerances. I can imagine working with any number of other concrete subs where these issues never would have been noticed by the sub, nor brought to our attention.
Their crews were professional, organized, and reliable in putting quality work in place every day. They passed inspections in a timely way, and successfully completing large pours, most of which occurred during mid-summer hot weather in the valley.
