Lumber Estimating Services

Lumber is one of the most important structural elements used in any type of construction.

Bidwin Solutions possess a vast 7 years’ experience estimating lumber and millwork quantities and delivering accurate lumber estimates to lumber contractors, millwork contractors, material suppliers, builders, developers and architects.

Calculating lumber quantities require practical experience and Bidwin Solutions has the ability to deliver precise lumber takeoffs.
