Lumber Estimators

We are home to expert lumber estimators. Our estimators hold great proficiency in lumber as a construction material. They understand everything about lumber concerning its specification and usage. Thus, they make good use of their expertise to provide lumber estimates and framing takeoff accordingly to the design provided to them in our siding takeoff and others.

Our Estimation Process

LUMBER ESTIMATION PROCESSOur experts take construction plans in pdf format. They study it properly and later analyze it through digital tools to estimate every needed detail. They do all this with great care and concentration. While doing so, they measure everything accurately. And after great consideration, they deliver requested lumber takeoffs to their clients.

For our process, the provided plan could be a rough sketch or a complete plan that includes the overall length, the height of the walls, and the sizes of the door & windows. The lumber frame is made with a single bottom plate and double top plates of wood. This way their total requirement becomes 3 times the length. Afterward, the studs are estimated. They are estimated 16 inches apart, with 3 in a 90-degree corner and 4 for a 45-degree corner. In the stud’s case consider 15 percent wastage.

The usual thickness of a header is 3 and a half inches for a lumber frame. In the case of standard-size doors or windows, the dimension goes to 2 pieces of half inches. Later, sheathing is carried. For this, an area of the wall is utilized. Openings, such as doors and windows, are subtracted from the total area and the rest is divided by 32 feet square as this stands as the size of a standard wood sheet. This way framing contractors calculate the number of required sheets. This is how we prepare our lumber estimating services.
