As accurate as possible considering that the estimators who developed these figures don't know your subs or suppliers, haven't seen the plans or specs, don't know what buiding code applies or where the job is and don't know your work crews. We don't claim that all construction is done at these prices. No single cost fits all jobs. Good estimates are custom-made for a particulat project and a single contractor through judgement, analysis and experience. Think of National Estimator Cloud as an aid to developing an informed opnion of cost.
Yes. However National Estimator Cloud runs on the Web. No Disk and no download needed. You get access to all 10 Craftsman's estimating costbooks for one low monthly cost. Plus, the Cloud product supports both IIF exports (to QuickBooks Desktop) and API transfers (to QuickBooks Online).
When it's time to begin billing for work completed, convert the bid to an invoice -- in either QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online. your invoice can show as uch or as little detail as you want -- every work item or just charges by job phase. Saves hours of typing. Elimates any doubt about what the invoice covers. The job phases you select are written to your Item List. Bill for either 100% of the job or just work completed during a pay period. national Estimator Cloud keeps track of work completed and billed and work yet to be completed and billed. QuickBooks keeps track of what's been paid and what's still owed. Use QuickBooks to compare job costs with revenue. Intuit and QuickBooks are registered trademarks of Intuit Inc.

Material prices are revised quarterly. Labor and equipment prices are updated annually.
From the same sources all professional estimators use: contractors and subcontractors, architectural and engineering firms, material suppliers, material price services, analysis of plans, specifications, estimates and completed project costs, and both published and unpublished cost studies. In addition, we conduct nationwide mail and phone surveys and have the use of several major national estimating databases.
