Our Drywall Expertise

Our team of dedicated drywall estimators always focuses on bid deadlines, any budgetary constraints, labor and equipment rates according to the zip code, on-field productivity based on professional construction and project management considering any delays, early start and finish activities, local material supplier quotes, mobilization charges and at the end achieving good profit margins. Our team also focuses on bid results, plan updates, requests for information (RFIs), and competitors’ prices to let our clients win more jobs. In short, we make data sheets for any factor involved in drywall estimating to finalize on-site construction to improve our services with time. That is why our drywall contractor family highly trust our bids.

An estimator should be well-equipped with the drywall installation process before preparing an estimate. Our first aim is always to hire a field knowledge-based experienced estimator, and then he has to pass through many learning processes before starting a drywall takeoff. After gaining sufficient knowledge, using the point-and-click method, an estimator uses the latest takeoff software like Planswift, Bluebeam and onscreen takeoff to measure walls and ceilings. The software is user-friendly and helps us mitigate any chances of errors. All the takeoff quantities are exported to Excel sheets, and the format is prepared per clients’ demand, for example, floor-wise estimates, wall types partition-wise, and sometimes unit-wise.

As discussed in the first paragraph, prices are calculated using the on-field labor, equipment productivity and labor hours. We also use RSMeans and localized construction rates based on zip codes to enrich our estimates with detailed pricing. The chief estimator also uses value engineering to increase bid win chances and profit potential.

Why should you hire Us?

Hiring an in-house estimator is quite expensive nowadays in the US market. Our team can provide a higher number of estimates on half of the expense as compared to an in-house estimator. We provide the facility of a dedicated estimator to our drywall contractors, who bid regularly. This estimator is always accompanied by a senior estimator for takeoff review, a pricing head for cost estimating, and, surprisingly, a helper estimator to share the burden of bidding without extra charges.
