Build an Estimate with Confidence

What are the Benefits of Outsourcing Estimating to a Professional Company?

Performing an accurate takeoff requires software proficiency and a keen eye for detail. For smaller contractors involved in businesses like drywall, lumber, painting, flooring, and more, doing material takeoffs on their own can be time-consuming, frustrating, and result in compromised accuracy. This can lead to losing bids and missed opportunities.

Having an in-house construction cost estimator requires proper training, expensive software purchases, and a significant expense in terms of salaries, bonuses, benefits, and more. Outsourcing to a professional estimating company that works with hundreds of companies like yours offers highly precise, reliable, and timely estimates, ensuring a good return on investment.

Outsourcing to a US-based estimating company that complies with standards, materials, and local pricing is crucial. Avoid offshore outsourcing of construction estimating and build an estimate with confidence by choosing a professional estimating company.
