Who We Serve?

Our Construction Estimating Services are large in number and serve lots of professionals. Get to know who we serve mainly.

Commercial Builders

Have you gotten a lowball estimate from the adjuster? Are you unfamiliar with the insurance claims process and unsure of your starting price range? Don’t have the resources to invest in learning the intricate estimate software used by the industry’s leading restoration and insurance firms? Let us lend a hand. Our experienced estimating services team will offer you an accurate Xactimate or Symbility repair quote based on current labor, material, and equipment pricing in your location for almost any repair trade, with an eye for details that are sometimes missed by adjusters.

Using its broad knowledge of sub-contractor pricing, we can provide general contractors with objective pricing for any trade they subcontract out. So, all business dealings may be anchored on the solid ground we help provide with our estimate service.


The advent of complex engineering has spawned both challenging and novel endeavors. Engineering has complicated the bidding process for everything from the skyscrapers that dot the skyline to the three-section deep sub-basements that run into rock, water, and other underground components. Engineering has had to spend a lot on excavation support. Even more so than whalers, rakers, lagging, and bracing, the expenditures associated with a caisson and pile drive have increased building prices significantly.

A decade ago, high-rises were built quite differently from how they are now. We can now soar hundreds of feet into the air, thanks to the high psi structural concrete skyscrapers. Great structures may be erected because of the availability of concrete and reinforcing rebar. Before final drawings are drawn out, and bids are solicited, these projects may be costed and modified (value engineered) to fit the owner’s budget.


As property owners, we need to have faith in an objective cost estimate that accurately reflects the scope and scale of a building project. General contractors set prices for jobs based on their own financial motivations. Our Construction Estimating Services is available to act as a trusted, objective consultant for the cost of your project. Also, with the help of a basic, early budget, you can make informed decisions about whether to press ahead with your building plans or take a step back to consider further, previously unconsidered cost reductions. Because of our status as a professional estimating business, many financial institutions may use our estimates as collateral for construction financing.


Poor planning, delayed payments, and overly optimistic customer expectations have all caused problems for certain clients over the years. We have, unfortunately, heard it all before. Many court cases have retained us as trained expert witnesses to explain estimation and building costs. If you, as a building owner or contractor, find yourself in a sticky legal situation, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your options. We work with insurance adjusters to assess property damage after natural disasters and may assist with developing estimates where necessary, in addition to providing expert witness services. Also, we have a staff of researchers and office helpers who can find data that might be useful to your case.


From here, we set off on our adventure. Families of hard workers who were sick of staying up late to get their jobs done. But we are able to present our customers with detailed estimates that account for the time, money, and effort required for each individual subcontractor trade by doing daytime estimates of the projects, asking the appropriate questions, and answering those questions honestly. With this data in hand, we can provide the customer with a more accurate estimate of their insurance premiums, as well as their profit and fixed expenses. So, our subcontractors are now able to more accurately estimate their costs. Also, we have won many more bids than we have lost.


Want to spend more time out in the field assessing losses and damage? Is the volume of pending claims preventing you from making timely estimates? A remote estimating tool, such as Xactimate or Symbility, is required. In order to assist you in meeting the estimating requirements of the carrier you’re working for, we’ll transform your Scope Sheets into Xactimate or Symbility estimates and provide you with the corresponding ESX files.


Our company’s cost estimates have proven invaluable to regional and national businesses that depend on general contractors’ bids based on square-foot pricing. Overdesign and unrealistic budgets are the results of this kind of bidding. But using our system, architects may see accurate sub-contractor charges on a per-trade basis. Setting budgets at the 25%, 50%, and 75% levels allows architects to assess whether they are on track with their spending before the designs are finalized.

Is There Some Way We Can Analyze a Sample of Your Estimates?

Yes, you may check our approximated samples on every single service page of our website. For various customers, we have completed a number of estimate projects. Contractors, subcontractors, developers, architects, homeowners, painters, drywallers, and framers are just a few of the industries we serve.

How precise are your projections, exactly?

Unlike other companies, we base our estimates on the actual zip code of your job, ensuring that you get fair and reasonable pricing. Each of our price estimates is meant to serve as a starting point for you to negotiate a final price using the Excel Spreadsheet we provide. So, you may manually override any of our anticipated prices by modifying Supervision, Equipment, and Profit.

Our prices for labor and materials are taken from the often-updated Craftsman National Construction Estimator Database. Our estimators are seasoned construction pros who account for variables like productivity, equipment upgrades, and other site-specific considerations when creating estimates. If a wall is 20 feet high, for instance, we’ll have to factor in a lift and reduce productivity to account for the increased cost of labor.

For a typical construction job, how much do you charge each hour?

Our pricing is done on a per-project basis, and we do not deal with projects on a time-based basis. For a variety of busy contractors that need “on-demand” quotes, our professionals provide them. Further, our contractor’s quote is predicated on a few jobs in a month. To help you save money on your construction project and finish it on time, we provide competitive and dependable rates.

I think The term “estimating service” doesn’t quite seem to fit.

Can you list the five tenets of estimation?

Forecasting how much money and other resources will be required to finish a project within a certain time frame is called “cost estimate” in the field of project management. All of the resources needed to complete the project are included in the final cost estimate. It sets financial limits for the undertaking.

  • Schedules for tenders.
  • Criteria that are not based on price and criteria that are based on price.
  • There are two types of pricing: direct and indirect.
  • Benchmarking, First Principles, and Second Principles are three methodologies used for estimating (rating).
  • Planned Expenditures.
Can You Provide an Estimate If Inaccurate Drawings Are Possible?

We are efficient enough to pitch in at the preliminary phases of planning and design. So this is definitely doable. Clients that have merely a concept for a team are the focus of our preliminary estimation services. To help you plan correctly, we provide building cost estimates.

Ability to make an educated guess is what we call “estimating abilities.”

Key abilities for estimators include the following.

  1. Numeracy.
  2. Paying close attention to specifics.
  3. Taking your job in a systematic manner. Awareness of the business world.
  4. Skills in working in a team, fostering positive relationships, and persuasion.
How long do you anticipate the delivery process to take?

At the same time, most building jobs may be completed in two to four days. Also, we’re able to handle a wide variety of jobs, even those with tight deadlines.

They need to be able to tackle each task with confidence in their estimations, and they should always be on the lookout for ways to improve. So, anyone looking to hire an estimator should be well-versed in these traits.

How does one go about making an estimate?

An estimate is a number that may be used for some purpose despite the fact that the input data may be partial, ambiguous, or unstable. Thus, this is what estimation (or estimating) is all about. In any case, the figure is practical since it is based on the most accurate data currently accessible.

So, What If I Don’t Have Detailed Plans for My Building Project?
