What other contractors are saying about W. L. Butler Construction's payment practices

How would you describe their payment process, speed, and policy?

Their contracts allow for a small 3% discount for quick payment within 2 weeks. Just completed our second project with Butler and had zero issues with their AP department, with retention even paid within 2 weeks. Will continue to do work for them without hesitation.

Approximately 113 days to pay each billing, could definitely be faster, but no other issues, so we are happy to recommend.

Can't comment on the offices in Redwood City, CA and Livermore, CA but the office in Irvine, CA is an excellent payer, can't rate this GC more highly when it comes to paying their billings. A+++++
