Frequently Asked Questions

Bidding Professionals LLC has been assisting GCs and subcontractors all across the nation for the last 8 years. We charge $25-$30 an hour for drywall estimating which includes a complete package of QTOs and cost estimation.

Usually the scope of work is defined by the client. Generally, we do Drywall sheets, Gypsum wallboard, Gypsum board ceiling, Acoustic ceiling, Backing, Sheathing, Thermal insulation, Acoustic insulation, Drywall taping, Blocking, Joint tape, Joint Sealant, Bracings, Metal studs, etc in drywall takeoffs.

Drywall is one of the major divisions in any type of construction but most of the time, there are not enough line items to cover so we take off all the minor and major line items including each and everything to maximize the efficiency and profit of the contractor.

Preparing accurate estimates is a lengthy process and it takes dedication and responsibility to ensure the accuracy of all types of takeoffs. While working in the industry for the last 8 years, we have prepared our own checklist for drywall estimates and we take off each and everything from the list. After the takeoff is complete, our senior estimator reviews the complete job at least two days prior to delivery to the client. If it is approved by the senior estimator then it is delivered to the client otherwise it is sent back to the estimation team for a revision. This process helps us to ensure accuracy. 

We have a well-experienced team of engineers, estimators, and accountants who do the complete analysis of changing market prices and optimize the prices to help contractors win more bids. We have our employees working on-site who get the actual market prices and compare them with RSMeans updated prices to get the best price for the customer according to zip code.

For the estimate to be perfectly accurate, we need the complete project plans including specs, structural plans etc along with the scope of work. If the client has his/her own format then we work on that otherwise we have our own format which is highly detailed and easy to understand.

It completely depends on the size and complexity of the job but if the client needs to get a job done within a short deadline, we do that by doing that job on high priority. We engage more estimators to get that job done.
