Experience pays off for Residential Estimating customers.

- Production Homebuilding goes back to 1988

Experience cannot be taught. It must be earned.
I come from a homebuilding family. From the time I turned 11, I was helping my father along with my brothers in our family homebuilding business. In 1980, I went to work full-time building homes.
When I learned homebuilding, a builder actually built his homes. I’ve set the forms, framed houses, run plumbing pipes, pulled wire, insulated, trimmed, painted, done tractor work, landscaping, and much more. This is why I am able to estimate professionally – because I know how the trades think and how they will use the materials I am estimating.
I do my best to analyse your plans, understand your specifications, anticipate your material needs, know how your trades will use them, understand your budget needs. In short, I try to think like the Builder, the Trade and the Supplier to help provide what everyone needs in an estimate: accuracy.
Let me put my experience to work for you and deliver an estimate that will be a management tool to help you save time and money on site.
