When cost estimating a remodeling job for builders or for building owners, we use the latest software to estimate the expense of your renovation. No one is more accurate or fast!
When estimating a remodeling project, it is broken down and estimated separately on our state of the art software. We cost out all of the areas involved, to get an accurate itemized price for the entire job.
Demolition. The includes the cost of disconnecting utilities, tearing down the unwanted portions of the existing structure, the removal to landfills of those items that are not recyclable, the cost of recycling those materials and items that are recyclable. Also factored-in is the disposal of hazardous materials such as old lamp ballasts, fluorescent lamps containing mercury, items covered with lead paint and more. Any materials that can be reused; repurposed; or sold for scrap, such as copper and aluminum, are factored back into the estimate.
Material cost. This is where the takeoff is the critical factor. Our construction estimating team is expert with the software programs they use and will provide exact counts for all individual components and accurate linear or square footage of all building materials. We count all required switch gear, electrical devices and the length of every gauge of wire and light fixture, all plumbing and HVAC equipment, all roofing, leaders and gutters, lumber, doors and windows, drywall, masonry and structural steel, paint and wall coverings. In addition we estimate all telecommunications, alarm, security, and sound systems. We also takeoff the site plans including grading, paving and lighting and landscaping if required.
Labor. We factor in the cost of labor for all the trades including masons, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, security technicians, painters, equipment operators, landscapers and more.
When your remodeling project is ready to go out for bid, publicly or by invitation, you will have an accurate price that you can rely on. The value engineering proposals that you receive can be weighed for their actual worth against the detailed estimate you have, to ensure that they are what they are proposed to be - value.
We use all of the latest software to do our remodeling takeoffs and estimates including Planswift, IMNS Mark System, Quest Estimating, ProEst, RS Means Cost Works and Bid Point XL.
