ESTIMATING FOR RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION, 2E provides a very visual, reader-friendly introduction to processes as it details the steps involved in accurately preparing a cost estimate. With his clear writing style, Prof. David Pratt explains how to price excavation and site work, concrete, carpentry, masonry, plumbing, heating, and electrical work, as well as the general expenses and sub-trade work. He also discusses the impact of green building practices and offers effective "shortcuts". The book provides specifics on how to prepare a bill of materials from a takeoff, summarize and prepare a bid for a custom home, assess markup on an estimate, and review a bid before it is submitted to the client. It thoroughly covers the basic math of residential, devotes an entire chapter to remodeling, and provides "tips of the trade" from professionals.
