Construction Cost Estimator helps contractors and service companies quickly create on-site estimates for construction and repair projects. You can save time and money by creating the estimate on the spot and then emailing it to the customer as a PDF or printing a hardcopy.
Each cost item is broken down into Material, Labor, Other, and Subcontract costs. You can save frequently used cost items in your own custom costbook, or you can purchase 3 different Craftsman costbooks within the app that contain detailed costs for over 30,000 common construction items.
Just search for a cost item, enter the quantity, and add it to your estimate in 3 easy steps!
• Fast and easy user interface for creating cost estimates
• Customize multiple types of PDF reports, and email them to customers directly from the app
• Add the logo and contact info for your company to create professional-looking estimates
• Costs are organized by Phases, Areas, and Categories that can be customized for each project
• Enter your overhead, profit, and tax rates for each project
• The app provides full support for international currencies and units
You can save common cost items in your own custom costbook, and you can purchase 3 different Craftsman Costbooks within the app via in-app purchase for $49.99 each. The costbook data is only valid in the US and Canada, but the costbooks are also available for purchase internationally.
• National Construction Estimator
• National Home Improvement Estimator
• National Renovation and Insurance Repair Estimator
Each costbook contains thousands of common construction items, and the costs are localized to your US Zip Code or Canadian Postal Code.
The Craftsman Costbooks are really helpful if you need to provide a cost estimate for work that you haven't done before, or if you need to do a sanity check on cost estimates from subcontractors. You can also copy cost items from the Craftsman Costbooks to your own custom costbook, and then change any of the numbers.

Ratings and Reviews
I love this app. It has advanced since the beginning which I can say I’ve been using this app to build proposals for almost 10 years now. When you get used to the layout it will help you knock out a great looking proposal in a short amount of time. You can build a mock up proposal for each scope and then copy/paste to help blaze through the redundant literature typing.
I’ve been using the app on iPhone’s for years now and it’s a great app to use. I’ve always had great customer service here but recently I’ve experienced the true nature of capitalism. I was looking into downloading the app for my MacBook but realized that I couldn’t afford the $40+ cost for this app. I reached out to customer service for a possible slight reduction in the price (this is during Covid-19 shutdowns) and literally received no response and was completely ignored.
So, I decided I would not get the app here but went ahead and moved to a different app instead.
Customer service is important and the foundation for our businesses.
This program is a lifesaver. I can get projects sent to customer within minutes once you know the program. I have used this in over 40 projects and made some good money because how great it estimates! It is so professional and easy to use!
