This video shows how to create accurate and detailed estimates in seconds using Estimating System.
Sometimes you may want to use a spreadsheet or estimating program for detail estimating. For example:
A general contractor or home builder creating an estimate to build a new home might have a list of 10 to 20 different building permits, licenses, and fees that need to be listed on a spreadsheet template under the phase Permits.
A company that builds new homes might have a spreadsheet template designed for their business that has several hundred or a thousand different items on it.
Sometimes an architect, engineer, graphic designer, or ad agency-those that have large, detailed, line item proposals or estimates-may want to use a spreadsheet or word processing program for detail estimating.
