# Estimate form

#1

When you guys go out to estimate a roofing project, Do you have a specific form where you calculate costs?
If so can you give heads up on it. I really need to improve my estimates.

#2

Cost of material? Actual cost of a man hour?

#3

I mean if you have any estimate forms. I would like to integrate in my estemates…
Can you guys provide me with forms, methods for roofing project…

#4

sorry AP,
aint much to it.
draw the roof,
measure the roof,
multiply it by whatever,
and give somebody a price.

gweedo.

#5

Cost of material (plus mark up if u do that)

How many man hours will it take to complete the task.

How much does each man hour cost your company.

Add in you companies profit percentage usually 10%

Example

Cost of material \$2237.00
105 man hours @ 32.00 per hour totals \$3360.00
total it cost you \$5597.00
10% overhead and 10% profit \$1119.40

``````                            invoice  \$6716.40
``````

I never include material costs in a proposal(estimate)Every contractor I known marks up material,some up to 30%.IMO its none of the owners business what I pay for materials.
