Who Are Our Clients

Who is Bidding Professionals?

Bidding Professionals is a NewYork-based Construction Estimating Company that provides Construction Estimating Services in the business of helping contractors prepare and win more bids.

Local pricing and accuracy of on-field labor productivity are imperative to win more projects so we help our clients prepare entire bids based on the zip codes and crew sizes.

Most contractors are so occupied with their on-field tasks that they don’t have enough time to do the estimating. Most of the Contractors find time to do the estimation on nights and weekends since they are preoccupied with other tasks like attending important meetings, dealing with vendors and suppliers, internal team management, and day-to-day other business activities.

It shouldn’t go like that!

“I need accurate estimates”

– Every Painting Contractor in the USA

We have a proficient team of civil engineers capable of delivering 50 projects every week. We bring our painting estimators on board and engage more estimators on high-priority projects. Our experts guarantee 100% factual construction estimating and takeoffs. Moreover, we use RSMeans for location-based pricing to get the best rates according to zip codes.

We optimize the pricing according to zip codes by incorporating RSMeans pricing with real-time labor productivity to maximize the contractor’s profit. We use RSMeans for local prices but improvise the prices with a calculated factor of labor productivity. We carry out cost estimates according to the price of materials and resources in your local area.
