Our team of construction estimators delivers highly precise preconstruction final quantity takeoffs and estimates to solidify the number for the construction projects.
Being a contractor, performing takeoffs and estimates is always time-consuming and disrupt productivity. Therefore many subcontractors approach us for precise and detailed quantity takeoffs and we get their bids finalized for proposal to their clients i.e. owners & General Contractors in 24-48 hours time with a 60% less estimating expense. Our material takeoffs help contractors for bid estimates, procurement, and supply purposes.
Homeowners & Builders
