What Is A Home Building Cost Estimator?

A home building cost estimator is an individual or a group of people who read the home building plans/drawings and calculate the type and the amount of materials required to build the specific home. The calculation of materials in terms of type and amount is called the quantity takeoffs. After quantity takeoffs, we have to calculate the amount of money required for the purchase of material along with the labor cost. This process of calculating the cost is called home cost estimation. This complete procedure is done by a home building cost estimator.

Process of Home Construction Cost Estimation

The first step in the process of house cost estimating is to go through the project plans thoroughly and check if the concerned estimate is a budget estimate or a design estimate. In the second step, the home cost estimator mark the plans on Bluebeam Revu which is a software used to calculate the home quantity takeoffs. The third step is the cost estimation in which we calculate the cost of each corresponding line item using RSMeans. RSMeans is an online platform by which we can get the changing market prices of construction materials. Home cost estimator get the prices of labor and materials along with the productivity of the labor from RSMeans. The detailed home building cost estimation is performed with everything broken down to show each minor detail to the client. The site estimate is performed in the first step covering each and every small details. In a home building cost estimation, we calculate the estimate of foundation/concrete and drywall. Then takeoff the complete building step by step. The final file includes the complete material takeoff along with the material and labor prices and it is presented to the client in a well organized and our self designed format.

What Is Included In Our House Building Cost Estimates?

In a general perspective, quantity takeoffs (the materials to be used in home building) and cost estimation (cost of the materials required to build the house) is included in a home cost estimator. In a descriptive perspective, quantity takeoffs include concrete, drywall, masonry, wood and plastics, framing and painting. While house cost estimation includes the cost of the materials along with 5% waste, cost of labor and labor productivity. The aggregate of these is calculated and mentioned as a unit cost corresponding to every line item.

Home Building Cost Estimator: Software we use

Factors Affecting House Building Cost

Home building cost mainly depends upon the following factors:

1. Location Of The Project

Depending on the location of the project, home construction costs can increase or decrease. Wetlands, conflicting utilities, poor soil conditions, infected materials, overhead lines, river or stream crossings, ground water, buried storage tanks, endangered species habitat, and archaeological sites are some of the conditions that influence the cost of a home building estimate. The location of the site will also affect the overall expense. For instance, if you are building your house in a high value area, you will most likely want to construct a high value property that will be more expensive than putting up a low value property in an average or low value area.

2. Materials Required In The Construction Process

Are the raw materials required in the construction process available in close proximity to construction site? If they are within easy reach of the site, the cost of home building construction will be low, but if they are available at farther distance from the site, then you will have to spend more money for transportation.

3. Choice of Architect

The experienced professionals will meticulously follow the construction process and ensure that everything is done perfectly. The motive behind their superior attention is to protect their brand. This means that if you hire a reputable professional, you will perhaps have to splurge more money .

4. Labor Costs and Productivity

The amount of money that you pay to the labor working on the site fluctuates from one state to another. Usually, the labor costs are found to be more in the urban areas as compared to the rural areas due to the fact that the cost of living is much higher in the urban areas. Along with labor cost, productivity of labor also affects the home building cost. A productive labor ensures the value for money .

5. Project Schedule

The time that the contractor is expected to finish the job greatly affects the house building cost estimates. An unpredicted delay in project duration raises the construction costs due to increase in indirect costs .

Indeed, Bidding Professionals stands out as favorably competitive among the other construction estimating services where you get premium quality and amazingly priced cost estimating services all under one roof.
