Construction Estimating / Takeoff services

Benefits Advance Estimating

We provide our estimating services to contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers in the US, Canada and Australia. Our focus is on providing accurate takeoffs with a quick turnaround of 2-3 days. Also, our rates are very affordable at only $11 per hour. With over 20 years of experience in estimating all types of projects (both commercial and residential) we guarantee professional take offs that help your business grow.

Don’t take our word for it!

As part of our takeoff, we will give you a complete list of materials with quantities and locations. We also provide the measurements we have used for the take off. We will also highlight any discrepancies in the blueprint / plan and any assumptions we make due to missing information. We are completely focused on accuracy and make sure each job is checked by a different estimator before sending it to you.
