How Can Contractors Determine Costs For Items And Prepare Quotes (Estimates) For Their Clients?

Get Expert Takeoff Services from Build an Estimate

To build an estimate, begin by verifying your costs and getting quotes from vendors. Adjust profits as needed and contact us for further assistance. Create a per sqft. total project cost and per sqft. item cost database and an in-house list of similar-sized projects with their costs. Compare the project under consideration to past project costs to ensure bid values fall within the range. This strategy will help you earn a good markup and increase your chances of winning bids.

How Outsourcing Takeoffs Help You Win More Business?

Outsourcing takeoffs to an estimation company can save you time and the burden of pulling quantities without expertise. Even with an in-house estimator, they may not be able to obtain a bill of quantities for enough bids to sustain your business. By outsourcing, you free up time for your estimator to offset costs and profits to bids, submit them to GCs, and follow up. This not only lightens your load but also improves your chances of winning jobs and maintaining a sustainable business.

Build an Estimate provides a clear insight into the cost of your project even before detailed plans are drawn up. Our construction cost estimates are accurate and reliable, giving you the confidence to share them with your clients. With 15 years of industry experience, we use the latest standards and advanced software to ensure our estimates are precise. 

We provide projected costs based on the information you provide, and our expert estimators offer proposals for any missing information and typical costs associated with a given space. At Build an Estimate, we have a proven track record of providing building takeoffs with zip code vendor-quoted estimates.

Success Stories

We recently helped an insulation contractor based in Sapulpa, OK, who was struggling to build takeoffs and submit enough bids to win new jobs. They outsourced their entire takeoff process to us, which included providing quantities, manhours, and pricing. We offered them a monthly package in which they could send 10 jobs of a specific scope and size. They simply forwarded the ITB to us, and we retrieved the necessary plans/drawings, performed the takeoff, assigned costs, and sent back estimates to them. This package cost them $1500 and enabled them to win most of the jobs they bid on. As a result, they have become a regular client, outsourcing all of their takeoffs to us and closing more leads.
