Residential & Commercial Contractor


JL Benton Contracting was founded in 1987 when Jerry Lee was just 21 years old. Over the last 34 years, the company that started out as one man with a tool belt and a passion for carpentry, has evolved into a distinguished residential and commercial contracting company. Because of our customers, vendors, and like minded team members, we have successfully been able to offer Central Indiana exactly what Jerry always promised; Quality Craftsmanship.

“JL Benton is without a doubt one of the best contractors you will find. They are meticulous in their work, easy to work with, and above all else Jerry Benton is an honest contractor, which is hard to find these days. “
