Walsh Estimating Service
I Still Have a Few Questions…
Q. How many customers do you have?
Q. Where are you located?
Q. What actual, real-world, experiences do you have?
Q. But I won't get the gut-feel of the job if I don't do it myself?
Q. Do you do cost estimating? Or are you quantities only?
A. We do hard bid numbers for a handful of customers where we get material and sub quotes and do everything involved. But mostly, we are asked to do what we call “Meaningful Budget Estimates.” Don’t misunderstand; we don’t pull numbers out of the air. We go farther than a typical engineer’s estimate. Yuck! We use historical material, sub, and crew cost data and apply crew production rates on a line by line basis where needed. Some larger home builders and contractors of all sizes hire us for this service.
Q. How much will it cost?
Q. Will you provide the takeoff application files?
A. Of course! Just request them.
Q. How do you guarantee your work?
A. We don’t! What? You heard right. We are not a bonding company. We guarantee our work up to the amount you paid for the estimate–and that’s it. If you are uncomfortable with this, please do not hire us.
Having said that –We promise to do the best job we can. If we didn’t would we still be in business after 30 years?
