I have a Remodeling & repair business so I refer to this book often. Because I live in a small Southern town often I have to make adjustments to the pricing . Quotes for items are high but I have to travel 20 + miles on occasion to get materials, so this book is a good "starting" point.I have 3 other year editions and only updated every 5 yrs to keep current .

My husband is a General Contractor. The main problem he runs into is what to charge for a project. This book has made his life so much easier. It breaks down projects into even the nuts and bolts used. Now he has a guide to use to make sure he bids each job properly. The book came very quickly and in perfect condition. I would buy from this seller again.

The main problem as a General Contractor is what to charge for projects. Spending hours and hours getting estimates for bids on top of working consumes your life. This book has been a life saver! It has all the pricing needed to get the bid done in over half the time. I would refer this book to anyone who is looking for an affordable pricing guide and to really cut the cost of time used researching.

So very helpful and very informative as well. I would suggest this book not only for the small to medium size handyman but for homeowner's looking to do work at their house. It will give you a ballpark figure and help weed out the garbage bids and those bids that our out of the ballpark completely.

I always get excited about buying these cost books thinking they're going to be helpful; but every time I check it with something I know to be true, it is so far off that I just can't trust it. I do not understand how other people can use cost books for estimating, they do not work for me.

A must have for anyone considering projects around the house or starting to fix and flip houses. With a little work you can get accurate cost estimates BEFORE the contractors bids come in.

i understand were they get their information for pricing but some of it seems very low to me. but it says to adjust to my area. still i don't see how some people work for these prices. all in all this book is very informative, especially for getting prices on something you've never bid or did before.

This is an awesome resource for cost estimating. It can help you understand contractors bids as the book also includes labor.
