Home Building Estimating Software
Most home building estimating software is professionally used by quantity surveyors, builders and other
building professionals. Some are very complex to use and require a lot of user based data entry while others
use pre-loaded central data for preparing the estimated cost.
Many homeowners can purchase their own home building estimating software online and many are in free trial
formats. All will require a degree of data entry usually in the form of areas and quantities therefore a good
degree of mathematics and scaling skills will be required.
Keeping the central database up to date with current pricing is one of the biggest problems in using
homebuilding estimating software as prices for materials and labour is changing all the time. That is why
most home building estimating software is on a subscription service for monitoring current building prices and
updating your estimating software on a weekly basis.
