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. In his signature clear, straightforward writing style, proven author 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 covers the impact of green building practices. The book offers 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 covers the basic math of residential work early on, devotes an entire chapter to remodeling, and provides “tips of the trade” from professionals in every chapter. In addition, the Second Edition is linked to a Student Companion Website, where instructors and students can access spreadsheets to assist in estimating tasks and problems.
