Book Description

Estimating Gulf Coast reconstruction costs isn't easy. Skilled labor is in short supply. Working conditions are difficult. Markups are higher. Many material prices have been affected by higher petroleum costs. This manual is a comprehensive guide to Gulf Coast reconstruction costs during 2006. Content is based on the popular 2006 National Renovation & Insurance Repair Estimator but with prices and area modifiers appropriate for repair work in the Katrina-Rita area. Th disk inside the back cover includes everything in the book and a program that makes it easy to use these costs to compile estiates. Most important, these costs are revised monthly during 2006 to reflect changes as they occur in coastal Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Updates are available on the Wb at no additional costs.

5Too accurate for its own good
By George King
The only problem with this book is that it offers real prices for the gulf coast area that may be more accurate than insurance companies want to pay. In other words, the costs are real costs for a real world. The FREE estimating disk and the monthly updates make this a great value. The prices on remediation are in line for what I've seen.
