Following are some representative customer testimonials regarding the level of service we provide:

"Benward Construction has done all of the site work for a four-building, 35-acre industrial project in Sonoma. This included grading and compacting for huge industrial buildings, installing a large sewer and retention system for water runoff, installing utilities and an immense paving job. Benward Construction, specifically Earl Broderick, saved us many thousands of dollars on a five-acre wetland project in the same industrial complex. Additionally, we have hired Benward Construction to do several parking lot/driveway repair jobs over the past few years. They were completed in a timely manner to our complete satisfaction. We believe Benward Construction Company is run with a great deal of integrity and we would highly recommend them."

"When you think about choosing a contractor you need to ask yourself several questions which encompass all phases of your project, including the initial bidding, scheduling, relationships with third parties, execution and follow-up. For our project, we found John Benward Co. responsive and willing to work with the client to reduce cost without affecting the quality and standard of the final product. They maintained positive relationships with subcontractors, city and county officials and especially our neighbors which helped streamline the execution of their work to meet the deadlines we had set. Most importantly for us, they remained available post execution to tidy up any outstanding questions or issues which were raised. In my experience, it is difficult to find the standards of excellence they exemplified on our project".

David Aquilina, General Manager
Cornerstone Festival of Gardens: Sonoma

"I was originally introduced to the John Benward Company by my building contractor who hired them to do the earth work for a home I built in Sonoma County. At that time I was very impressed with the quality and timeliness of the work, the dedication and friendliness of the crew, and the leadership and attentiveness of Earl Broderick.

After the house was completed I hired Benward on several occasions to do additional projects including building rock culverts to redirect rainwater and asphalting a quarter mile road/driveway to my home. On each occasion I have been exceptionally pleased with the quality of the work and the personnel in both the field and the office.

Given my experiences, Benward will be the first (and only) company I call in the future to do this type of work. I have wholeheartedly recommended them to friends in the area.

When I've worked with Benward, I've slept well at night knowing that the job will be completed in a timely fashion, that it will be done for the agreed upon price, and that the work will be of excellent quality."
