As a result, every takeoff becomes ultra-precise. When an estimator produces a takeoff, then it is checked by a senior quantity surveyor. We do not end verification there. But a senior project manager also reviews it before handing it to the client. Multiple verification systems allow us to claim 98% accuracy in every takeoff.

    We provide takeoffs within 24 to 48 hours. If you have concrete, masonry, lumber, drywall, and painting takeoff, then we will deliver it under 24 hours. For mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and structural steel takeoffs, we take only 36 hours. If you have complete residential or commercial project takeoff, then we promise 48 hours. However, for complex projects, we can take a little bit more time.

  • Precise cost database

    We provide precise estimation because we use RSmeans, Craftsmen, and our database of pricing based on zip-codes and locations. If you have vendor and supplier rates, then we calculate takeoffs on that pricing.
