Quantity & Material Takeoff

The Role Of The Material Estimator

Even the most reliable software and modeling programs are tools. The human
factor is still the most vital part of the construction equation. You want an
experienced eye in order to achieve a successful and accurate cost projection.
An experienced Material Estimator has the skills and knowledge to guide you
through the entire process from beginning to end.

Our experience will enable us to fill in the blanks that always exist in the initial
phases of a proposed project. More profit margin dollars can be lost by mistakes
in the framing materials order than in any other part of the process. That is why
after evaluating many software packages, we purchased a full-featured system
that allows us to tailor our Material Estimates to local practices.
