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 to email to to customers, subcontractors, and internal staff
• 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.


The app is used by many types of contractors, estimators, and service companies, such as:

General contractors, electricians, plumbers, builders, landscapers, roofers, painters, carpenters, heating and air conditioning, flooring, siding, tile, concrete, asphalt paving, bathroom and kitchen remodeling, deck builders, handyman services, pest control, real estate flippers and rehabbers, insurance repair estimators, and more!

Convenient, Professional, and Fast

Building custom cost books and having the freedom to modify them is very convenient and has helped me adjust my prices where I need to. It has allowed me to bid competitively in various areas. Its professional looking quotes are also modifyable. That has allowed to structure my quotes how my customers request and understand them, still with a professional look and presentation. Once complete with a quote I just click email and its on the way. This has allowed for same day quotes and quick adjustments to quotes and change orders. NOW! My request is to have the PDF NCE costbooks I already own, import or integrate without me having to type in each line item. 2ND I would love an integration with quickbooks or a financial and tax report center in this app.

Excelent Estimate Tool

Excelent Estimate and Proposal Tool.
It will show professionalism to you customers. Is also great to produce job reports to show your customers when you work time & material or to explain charges on an invoice. It's a good way to record past job to future consultation about new jobs. If you write a input a report as the job was done with all the actual cost you can analize pricing and how you estimated to adjust any mark up. It has some limitation in the way it mark up cost but there is ways around it. Great tool to quickly present a neat proposal to costumers. There is a more complete version of this app called Contractor Tools

Easy to Use!

Even though you have little to NO instruction on using this application & are not able to use it on your Mac & mobile devices without buying them seperatly ($40 & $20). I have no complaints. The system offers everything I need as an estimator and with the custom cost books I have been able to just save some of the costs/descriptions that are used regularly.

If you take to time to look around and want to learn how to use this app it will become easy after probably an hour of tinkering so DO NOT GIVE UP and do not be impatient.
