Construction Estimates are the most important aspect of your contracting business.
Reviewing a project and estimating the cost it will take to complete it, is just the first step in the process. Too many contractors underestimate the amount of time a project will take, as well as the cost. They tend to do this for two reasons: one is that they want to show the client they can complete the project in less time than others and the second is that they are trying to be the lowest bid to secure more work; only to find out too late that the project cost is more than what was estimated. Before long money is taken from one project to finish another. This can be disastrous to your business and a perfect set up for failure. Don’t make that mistake!
