Best Contractors for Payment in California

Throughout 2019, the California contractors on this list had the highest rates of jobs without reported payment issues.

On-time construction payments improve outcomes for everyone. Good payment practices reduce lien risk for property owners, improve cash flow for contractors and suppliers, and improve relationships on the job. But on most projects, construction payments are made in the dark, with little-to-no transparency into the process.

Levelset’s newly updated Contractor Profiles platform is making construction payment data public to help property owners, builders, and suppliers easily identify the best contractors in any state (or any city) for on-time payments.

How scores are calculated

A contractor’s percent of jobs without reported payment issues is based on the number of total projects where they did not receive:

A contractor’s payment speed rating (Fast, Medium, Slow) is also influenced by good payment practices, like requesting/receiving preliminary notices and lien waivers. Both of these visibility documents indicate a contractor’s concern for transparency and relationship-building on a job.

The more recent these documents were exchanged, the greater impact they have on the payment speed score. For more info, please see how contractor profile scores are calculated.
