Estimating: Residential Construction, Advanced Forum (Next course TBD)

Advanced residential estimating is a one day course for experienced estimators or estimators who will be working on modern house styles with complicated roofs (multi pitch, angled walls, and cathedral ceilings).  We review home styles in your region and review practical estimating processes to accommodate them.  The process of speed estimating is introduced as well as current estimating tools for manual estimating.  It is also a chance for estimators to interact with each other about estimating best practices.  A manual estimator’s toolbox of tips and details comes with the course.
