A precise estimate for residential construction forms the foundation for the entire financial aspects of the project. When planning the construction of residential buildings, having an accurate cost estimate provides insights into potential expenses. This information is crucial for calculating markups, budget allocation, securing financing, quoting prices to clients, and negotiating with contractors and subcontractors through our Residential estimating services.

World Estimating stands out in the industry, offering seasoned and expert estimators for residential construction estimating services tailored to your project. Following a thorough analysis of plans, we utilize cutting-edge software for digital takeoffs and consult our construction cost database and RS means for zip-code pricing specific to your residential estimate. We break down labor costs, considering union and prevailing wages, standard time, and overtime. The bill of materials is organized in CSI Master Format divisions or based on CSI costs patterns in EXCEL spreadsheets, making it easy for you to review and share with vendors for pricing.

In our portfolio of home estimation services, we measure the items in residential projects using units like volume, length, area, and number.

Depending on your needs, we tailor the quantity assessment in our home construction estimation services based on the units suitable for specific purposes. For example, for lumber supply, vendors typically require beams, studs, joists, and rafters quantified in EA (each) with a detailed description of nails and clips.

We typically measure the following materials in our home quantity assessments:

  1. General conditions (permits, taxes, logistics, storage, etc.)
  2. Sitework (site preparation, excavation, backfilling earthwork, landscaping)
  3. Concrete (foundation, driveway, sidewalk, paving)
  4. Masonry (walls and piers)
  5. Wood/Plastic composites (structural lumber, millwork, carpentry)
  6. Thermal & moisture protection (roof and wall insulation)
  7. Doors & Windows
  8. Metals (structural steel reinforcements, metal railings)
  9. Interior/exterior finishes (drywall, plastering, painting, flooring, tiling, roofing, wall and pier finishes)
  10. Plumbing fixtures
  11. Mechanical (exhaust fan, HVAC systems)
  12. Electrical (lighting, alarms, detectors, ceiling fans, TV cables)
  13. Other specialties (stairs, toilet accessories, kitchen equipment, and furnishings)
