Description

Construction Cost Estimator helps contractors and service companies quickly create on-site estimates for construction and repair projects. You can save time and money by creating the estimate on the spot and then emailing it to the customer as a PDF or printing a hardcopy. Each cost item is broken down into Material, Labor, Other, and Subcontract costs. You can save frequently used cost items in your own custom costbook, or you can purchase 3 different Craftsman costbooks within the app that contain detailed costs for over 30,000 common construction items. Just search for a cost item, enter the quantity, and add it to your estimate in 3 easy steps! FEATURES • Fast and easy user interface for creating cost estimates • Customize multiple types of PDF reports, and email them to customers directly from the app • Add the logo and contact info for your company to create professional-looking estimates • Costs are organized by Phases, Areas, and Categories that can be customized for each project • Enter your overhead, profit, and tax rates for each project • The app provides full support for international currencies and units CRAFTSMAN COSTBOOKS You can save common cost items in your own custom costbook, and you can purchase 3 different Craftsman Costbooks within the app via in-app purchase for $49.99 each. The costbook data is only valid in the US and Canada, but the costbooks are also available for purchase internationally. • National Construction Estimator • National Home Improvement Estimator • National Renovation and Insurance Repair Estimator Each costbook contains thousands of common construction items, and the costs are localized to your US Zip Code or Canadian Postal Code. The Craftsman Costbooks are really helpful if you need to provide a cost estimate for work that you haven't done before, or if you need to do a sanity check on cost estimates from subcontractors. You can also copy cost items from the Craftsman Costbooks to your own custom costbook, and then change any of the numbers. WHO USES CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATOR?

    The apps does everything it says but, it fail to mention that the material cost factors you will pay and extra $50 per category. In which blow me away. I was excited until I cross that situation. I felt , that I should have been warn about such high cost. This was the reason I purchase it at $19 but now. My air has been let out, very disappointed.
  • Complicated

    It's overall a good app. Takes a long time to get it set up how you like with your costs. You do have to buy cost books of you want help with certain task you don't price regularly. Good looking estimates but my biggest problem is its not synced with my other devices. If I make a estimate on my phone, I can't access it on my iPad, huge problem for me. I downloaded a free app called joist and that even does syncs my estimates in of my devices so I don't understand how I paid $20 for this app and paid like $65 for their one cost book and still don't have this convenience. I hope they add this feature soon, would be very helpful. I haven't even tried to use this app on my Mac yet, you probably need to buy the app again for Mac.

    This is not what it appears. It is ONLY an organizer. You still have to purchase all the online books for it to work. Without the books it is just a template you have to fill in yourself. In other words, you are paying $20 bucks for an excel sheet. DO NOT BUY
  • Not what I thought it was

    This is a report formatting tool that makes nice looking estimates for clients. I was looking for actual cost data, so when this app offered a 30-day free trial of one of the Craftsman cost books, I said okay. That downloaded another app...which immediately wanted me to select a level of payment. I gave up on the whole thing at that point. Twenty bucks wasted.
  • Very easy to use

    I don't use this for all my estimates. If a client is looking for a quote on the spot it is my go to app. Very useful tool to help with estimates on the go!
  • Waste of money

    You spend $20.00 for nothing . All the pricing manuals cost $50.00 each . Don't waste your time with this app I wish I could get the $20.00 back.

    I've used Estimator for years. It works great for my business. My clients love the instant bids with great detail.
  • BEST APP!!!!!! With a downside

    Best app for estimating. Only downside is the fact that you can't view saved estimates on multiple devices only if you purchase a newer beta version but you are expected to pay more money. It should be available for free for customers who have purchased earlier versions.
