Very helpful guide!
By Carolyn S. Ross
My husband has been using this guide to write estimates and bill his clients for nearly a year. As a self-employed home improvement contractor, one of his biggest challenges was determining costs for labor and materials. This has helped him a great deal.

Excellent reference--included software a big bonus.
By Joe the Builder
Have not yet used it for an estimate yet. I checked my stats against the items listed in the book & it seems fairly accurate. The software included with the book seems like it will be very useful.
