Estimating that pays for itself

Experience cannot be taught.  It must be earned.

I come from a home building family.  From the time I turned 11, I was helping my father along with my brothers in our family home building business.  In 1980, I went to work full-time building homes.  When I learned home building, a builder actually built his homes.  I’ve set the forms, framed houses, run plumbing pipes, and pulled wire. I’ve insulated, trimmed and painted. I’ve done tractor work, landscaping, and much more.  This is why I am able to estimate professionally. I know how the trades think and how they will use the materials I am estimating. 

  • I’ve been estimating full-time, professionally, since 1992. 
  • Production Homebuilding goes back to 1988
  • Custom Homebuilding experience goes back to 1980.

Home builders, owner-builders and lumber companies will benefit from my extensive construction and estimating knowledge, experience, and judgment. I’ll analyze and audit your plans and engineering. I’ll work to interpret and understand your specifications. I’ll strive to anticipate your material needs because I know how your trades will use the material that you order and deliver. With Residential Estimating Service, you’ll get better detailed lumber takeoff estimates.  

Your budget needs are the highest concerns. In short, I try to think like the builder, the trade and the material supplier all at the same time. I do this to help provide what everyone on the job needs in an estimate: accuracy.

Put my experience to work for your company. I’ll deliver an estimate that will be a detailed management tool to help you save time and money on site.
