"Our focus has always been to help our clients feel great about their home"

Our Team

In 1995 Benchmark got its start in Kensington, MD offering painting and wallcovering contracting services. Then to serve our clients better, we saw the need to offer both painting and carpentry contracting services. A branch was opened in Boynton Beach, FL and our newest branch is located in Raleigh, NC. We’d like you to meet our Kensington team.

I have been in the painting industry for 3 years. Before that, I was in the customer service industry 5 years. My client’s satisfaction is my priority and I strive to provide my clients with professionalism and quality service from start to finish.

Our Mission

Our focus is on the homeowner’s satisfaction on every project big or small. We have made it a priority to instill in our crews the importance of maintaining a clean, tidy and safe work environment. It’s important to us that our clients feel confident that our crews working in and around their homes are not only the best in the business, but will treat them and their homes with respect. We feel for these reasons Benchmark has grown into a successful business and will continue to become a household name.


Benchmark Founder

Martin DeVincenti comes from a family of proud contractors. Three of his four brothers are in the profession and gave Martin his early training. His father is also a registered architect and received his master’s degree in urban planning. Following in his father’s footsteps, Martin began studying architecture and drafting at Santa Monica College. Martin then started a short internship at Keeva J. Kekst Architects in LA but soon realized that entrepreneurship was his true passion. Starting from the ground up, he worked as a carpenter and painter on many important projects in the West LA area including the personal home of world-renowned architect, Frank Gehry. After spending several years working in the Los Angeles area, Martin decided to move back home to the DC Metro area to be close to his family and start Benchmark. He also became a leader in local painters’ organizations and is the past president of both the Washington Metro chapter and the Palm Beach County chapter of the Painting & Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA). Martin is a father of two children and an avid tennis fan and player.
