Ben Hannett is Western Australian born and bred; with over 25 years experience in the building industry, he's well and truly made his mark in the WA housing industry. After more than 10 years in building and construction of residential dwellings both here and interstate, Ben has spent the past 15 years dedicated to maintenance works of pre-existing homes and premises, tackling everything from major renovations to minor touch-ups. His industry knowledge with a background in structural works means he is uniquely placed to provide maintenance advice and service on a wide range of issues, both common and slightly unusual.

"I love a challenge", he says with a smile, "and this line of work throws me quite a few curvy ones!".

Before founding Benefits House Maintenance, Ben worked for several other companies; but often found the restricting nature of underqualified management providing quotations when the work was being carried out by tradespeople was leaving customers and clients frustrated. Ben has found that personally overseeing the scope of work is detrimental to keeping a budget and timeline on schedule, and his attention to customer service has impressed private and corporate customers who simply want a job well done by someone who knows what they're doing. With Ben, they can be assured of exactly that.

Ben finds the diversity of work in maintenance very engaging and that the wide range of skills required - from carpentry and joinery, painting, masonry work, structural and cosmetic - ensures that very rarely are two jobs alike. Ben believes strongly in keeping the home owners, property managers and/or tenants informed of the scope of work that needs to be carried out, including the materials required and the likely timeline needed to complete the task.

"Too often", he says, "a contractor who rushes to finish the job might skip over the finishing touches and it's those finishing touches that can make all the difference".

It is that dedication to perfection that Ben has built his reputation - and the reputation of Benefits House Maintenance - upon.
