For carpet, tile, wood or any other type of flooring, Benchmark Interiors is a complete flooring specialist store, offering competitive prices, confidence and quality workmanship.
From his beautiful, easily accessible store in East Mesa, Benchmark Interiors owner Don LeSueur carries on what has been a 37-year tradition—that of working directly with customers to provide them the best possible service and direction.
“When it comes to flooring, we do some of everything, from commercial, including dental and doctors’ offices, to new construction, to working with those who are remodeling or ‘flipping’ homes as investments,” Don says.
A member of Emerald Acres Ward, Mesa South Stake, Brother LeSueur says he runs the business with his son, Russell, who does window coverings, such as shutters and blinds, as well as flooring. Working with Don and Russ, are Kevin Young and Bob Flaherty, who have been together since their 27-year stint at the Carpet Company and then at Landmark Interiors in Mesa.
“We worked together for years. Then, when Dennis Barney sold Landmark eight years ago, I opened up my own place,” Don says.
Kevin, Bob and Don are able to handle all the sales, measuring, service and administrative concerns of the business, and they sub out the installation to reputable craftsmen that they have worked with for years.
At Benchmark, customers find a unique atmosphere of friendly expertise.
“Customers like being able to work with the owner,” Brother LeSueur says. That gives them a sense of confidence, he says, as does the fact that, “We follow through with any problems and concerns.”
Bottom line, Brother LeSueur says, Benchmark Interiors offers customers a quality, confident buying experience.
“We try to take care of our customers so they are happy,” he says.
In addition, Don adds, pricing is another thing that makes customers happy and encourages them to send referrals to Benchmark.
“We are very competitive pricewise,” he says.
They buy from most of the big carpet mills, so they offer all the well-known brands of carpet, including Tuftex, Shaw, Mohawk, Beaulieu, Royalty, Camelot and Dream Weaver. Benchmark Interiors is also known for their wide range of options in hardwood flooring, laminate, ceramic and porcelain tile and travertine.
Benchmark Interiors serves the East Valley and the Phoenix metro area. Their showroom is located at 1614 N. Higley Road, on the northwest corner of Higley and Baseline roads in Gilbert. They are open 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays and by appointment on Saturdays.
