Project Estimating for Lumber Yards

Drop the spreadsheets and start estimating with the right tool for the job.

Spreadsheets work... until they don't

Simple spreadsheets can get messy fast. Corrupted files, broken formulas and inconsistant results from one estimator to the next make for a stressful way to run your business.

Several error pop-ups that say " File Corrupt, cannot be opened" and "Formula broken"

There has to be a better way. This is it.

As a construction supplier, you need a construction management solution that can keep up with the unique demands of your business. Our software is ready to go out of the box and offers a range of features tailored to the needs of lumber yards and suppliers like you.

No more stacks of plans to waiting to be estimated

Stop falling behind and missing out on project wins. With Digital Takeoff and build templates you will get your estimates in the hands of your customers before your competitors do.

Templates speed up the estimating process

Use any of the prebuilt templates as a starting point for your estimates or make your own custom templates that you can use again and again. Quickly estimate post frame buildings by simply inputting dimensions to get a fast and accurate estimate, complete with a detailed material list.

Ready to Go for Suppliers - Out of the Box

As a construction materials supplier, you need a construction management solution that can keep up with the unique demands of your business. Our software is ready to go out of the box and offers a range of features tailored to the needs of lumber yards.

Automatically Generate a Detailed Materials List

A detailed materials list is generated so your customer will know exactly what is included in the estimate, down to the type of nails. The system tells you exactly WHERE those materials go because you have already assigned them to an area of the project. 

Easily Add Alternates

Have a client that wants pricing for multiple layout or finishing options? With Estimator360 it is simple to add alternate options and switch between them with the click of a button. No need to retool everything – all project documantation is updated along with the estimate!
