4This book proved to be a good source of information for an estimate I was doing
By Chuck Ford
This book proved to be a good source of information for an estimate I was doing. I was unable to get the downloads to work...still working on that. However, I used for an estimate and found it very accurate. I was glad I purchased it. This particular book does not have the images the earlier books have which I feel is draw back. The pictures used are not that great. But, I didn't get it for that anyway...it is a great estimating sources. One thing that was helpful was the cross section it provided for residential and commercial construction wages. Hope this helps.//Chuck
