Confidence with estimating can be a little thin on the ground at times because as every contractor knows winning the wrong job could be fatal.
So what's to be done?
No one can guarantee you that this job or that job will make you money, it's only when you are finally paid that the reality becomes apparent. Having said that, the right price helps and the right tool to help you price is key.
If you are negotiating for a big job what is the one thing you must know with absolute certainty? Your bottom line.
It's only by having a real grasp on your quantities, materials and labour that will help you truly know what the job will cost you. So it follows that an accurate estimating system which has been set up specifically around your purchasing and labour costs should be of obvious benefit.
