How do you ensure the accuracy of masonry estimates?
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 masonry estimates and we take off each and everything from the list. After the masonry takeoff is complete, our senior masonry 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 cost estimation team for a revision. This process helps us to ensure accuracy.
What is your turnaround time?
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 masonry estimators to get that job done.
