Contractor Bid/Proposal Forms


I'm looking for a Bid/Proposal form software that gives a detailed list of work to be done, form foundation to finish. I've surfed the web, but I can't find anything worthwhile. Anyone using any kind of decent proposal/bid forms, please post a reply. Thanks

Re: Contractor Bid/Proposal Forms


As I am new to the forum, I am not as yet able to post a URL for a website until I have made 15 posts. However, if you send me an email, I can provide you with a website that features construction proposals and other forms in PDF format. Many of the forms featured on the site allow you to create predefined templates in PDF format which can save considerable time.

Why not just type out the URL??

Like: www dot contractortalk dot com

Then all will know.

Thanks,

Very nice website.

http://www.inspectabuilding.com/

That is probably Not the forms site you were referring to, but still, a very classy site and good library content.

Obviously, I particularly liked the Roof Inspection slide show.

This is the site he was thinking of, I believe:

You're right, it's not but thank you for the compliment. Incidentally, commercial as well as residential roof coverings continue to be an area of concern in my profession especially as it pertains to the original application/installation. As I've just completed an overhaul of my website, I will be adding more photos as time goes on. Only wish I had had my digital camera way back when!

As I just found and joined this site today, I should first explain that I am an independent building inspector/consultant of twenty-three years specializing in commercial property condition assessments (PCA's). In my spare time, I'm also an AcroForms (PDF forms) designer and developer of many years dating back to the early 90's. So, I should also tell you that EzDataSoft is also my software website as my intentions are not to spam this site.

My main reasons for wanting to become a member of this forum are: 1) to help those in the contracting/building construction and remodeling profession resolve and prevent problems (when I can) based upon what I've learned and seen in my profession over the past forty years, 2) to answer questions regarding construction forms for completing some of the most common tasks in the building construction profession that many often spend and waste too much time to complete.

I've since sent an email to the 'Contact' email address provided on this website to express my interest in writing and submitting articles regarding: 1) the cause and prevention of the most common deficiencies/problems I have and continue to encounter as an independent building inspector/connsultant, and 2) the use of electronic PDF forms technology in the construction profession as a means to accomplishing many tasks much better and in a shorter period of time.

I've also asked for what's referred to as a Reader Card regarding advertising on this website.

Respectfully,
Martin Potokar - PCA Specialist

Re: Contractor Bid/Proposal Forms


I use a product called formdocs for my proposals. It is very easy to learn. It lets me type proposals and print right from the computer. It does cover letters too, and it saves all the information so you don't have to type it all in again. Pretty slick! www.formdocs.com
