About Signature Builders of Wisconsin

Signature Builders, Inc. was founded by Bert Butterfield in 1991 on the premise that every home should be a unique reflection of the homeowner, and that every home building experience uniquely reflects on the builder.  Bert began his building career as a project manager in the commercial building trade where design creativity, customer-focus, expert communications, organization, precision and consistent follow-through became his hallmarks.  After ten years of supervising the construction of shopping centers, hotels and restaurants, Bert realized that these business-driven elements of success in commercial construction combined with his friendly personality would translate perfectly into the construction of custom homes for discriminating clients.  Since then, Bert and Signature Builders, Inc. have worked with many customers to visualize, plan and build their unique dream home in the rolling hills of southeastern Wisconsin.  We want to thank our many customers for reflecting on their experiences with us throughout this website.


At Signature Builder’s, Inc. we believe in building trust through relationships with our customers.  You can depend on Signature to listen, collaborate, follow through and work with you from start to finish.  We spend as much time with someone building a 2,000 square-foot-house as with someone who is building an 10,000 square foot house – because the commitment to doing it right is exactly the same for everyone.

We strongly believe in up-front planning with our customers and building partners and take pride in delivering our homes on time and within budget.  We don’t like surprises, and don’t think our customers do either – so we make sure you will know what you are getting and what's happening along the way.

We develop long-term relationships with our vendors and sub-contractors, and strive to build teamwork through trust and communications.  We look to them for best-of-breed ideas and technologies that will contribute to the quality, durability, efficiency, value and style of the home.  We only build a few houses at a time, so we can build them as if they were our own.  

We pay attention to details, because we care about details.  Even our most discriminating customers depend on us to take care of the smallest things and know that we will follow-through on our promises.

We like to have fun – with our customers and building partners.  If home building is just a chore, then no one - including us will want to do it again.

Signature Builder’s, Inc. believes that ordinary houses should be built by someone else.  Everyone in the Signature process has a stake in building a home to be proud of - one that stands out from the crowd in quality, style and presence. It starts from the very beginning by selecting the location and planning the architecture.  And it continues throughout construction and moving-in.  We strive to make sure that dream homes become reality and that every customer would choose to be a Signature customer again. Customers choose Signature Builders, Inc. for many reasons, but as the home is designed and once you move in, it's the "Signature look" and quality that you will love.
