Re: Cost Estimator


I've used it a few times in the past to compare my prices. It's never accurate to our price.

Re: Cost Estimator


It's all over the board. That's the funny thing. Very high on some jobs very low on others.

Re: Cost Estimator


I agree with Grumpy. Some were way high, some were laughably low. Doesn't give an option for painting baseboards, or set up/tear down time, etc.
