Need help with estimating!

urbancarpenter29's picture

Hi All,

Anyone have any good references for how they estimate residential renovations work?  Been in the business a while, and am always interested in learning different ways to estimate projects.  Read a lot of the forums and replies and what seems to be missing to me is that actual nuts and bolts of what people need help with.  How are you quoting jobs?  Are you using Excel, paper, or an online software program?  Welcome any feedback here!
