Outsourcing Your Lumber Takeoffs Is The Right Strategy

The right lumber estimate and quantity takeoff require an in-depth knowledge of millwork construction techniques, wall arrangements, lumber qualities, structural connections, labor costs, man-hours, transportation costs, etc.

Performing takeoff and estimation by yourself can be very time consuming and frustrating. By hiring an estimating company like ours, you can save a lot of time that can be utilized in other activities like bidding on more projects, developing business strategies, etc. By outsourcing your millwork estimates you are relieved from hiring. And training professional staff which also bear huge costs. You also save the expense of costly estimating software.

Professional estimation companies have expert estimators to perform highly accurate and timely takeoffs, by getting services from them, your chance of getting the jobs increases, and it also contributes towards long term relations with your general contractor.

Quick Turnarounds

We have a staff of skilled estimators that can estimate or takeoff home plans in as little as 24 to 48 hours, both for commercial and residential projects. Turnaround times for commercial estimates might change depending on the complexity and scale of the project.

Accurate Construction Cost Database

We deploy RSMeans and our developed construction cost database for material, labor and equipment pricing for up to date and zip code based costing.


The first step in the estimating process at World Estimating is the review of the drawing plans by the MEP specialist, who has extensive prior experience working with Mechanical (HVAC), ducting, air-conditioning systems, refrigeration units, Electrical, low voltage equipment, and Plumbing takeoffs. The specifics, timelines, and requirements, together with a few small general observations, are taken into account.

Each drawing plan is then uploaded using our approved software, such as Trimble, Bluebeam, Plan Swift, Fast WRAP, Fast DUCT, etc. A senior estimator, who assures a cold-eyed evaluation from marked-up plans and takeoffs sheets in EXCEL, reviews the quantities from the plans after our qualified and certified estimator takeoffs them and ensures that all considerations, correct standards, and codes are followed.

Each line item is quantified, stated, and given the appropriate explanation in accordance with the goal. It is defined what the job-winning approach will be for bid estimates, procurement, and supply needs. After the estimation department has undergone peer review, estimates for residential, commercial, and industrial projects are presented to clients.


We consider wood panels, plates, studs, joists, sheathing, headers, cripples, trimmers, and trusses for framing takeoff. Furthermore, the labor, labor-hours, logistics, permits, insurances, taxes are included in them.
