How We Do Estimates for Residential Contractors & Home Builders

Estimating the cost of a residential construction project involves determining the materials, labor, and other costs that will be incurred during the project. Here are some steps that can be followed when estimating the cost of a residential construction project:

1. Define the scope of work: Clearly define the work that needs to be done, including the specific tasks and materials that will be required. This will help you identify all the costs that will be associated with the project.

2. Gather cost data: Research the cost of materials, labor, and any other expenses that will be incurred during the project. This can be done by contacting suppliers, checking online resources, and consulting with industry professionals.

3. Determine quantities and unit costs: Calculate the quantities of each type of material and labor that will be needed, and multiply these quantities by their respective unit costs to determine the total cost for each element of the project.

4. Add indirect costs: Indirect costs are expenses that are not directly related to the materials or labor needed for the project, such as insurance, permits, and project management fees. These costs should be added to the total project cost.

5. Summarize the costs: Add up all the costs associated with the project to determine the total project cost.

6. Create a detailed estimate: Create a detailed estimate document that outlines all the costs associated with the project, including materials, labor, and indirect costs.

7. Review and revise the estimate: Review the estimate to ensure that all costs have been accounted for and that the estimate is accurate and complete. Make any necessary revisions and update the estimate as needed.
