As a pillar for developers, contractors and architects everywhere, Zag Estimating Inc. is a seasoned, full-service estimating service with roots in construction that date back decades. With over 50 years of combined experience in the industry, our team is made up of both structural and civil engineers with access to data that will make your life success easier. We look at the going rates in your area, break down your trades and offer a detailed analysis that tells you where you need to be and whether or not it is wise to move forward with a project.
Our estimates also offer a recipe or prescription for how to proceed in a cost-saving way. Our quotes are detailed and accurate, enabling you to price with integrity but also respect your bottom line. We do not play games. We got into this work to stand up against injustice and price gouging and we are utterly committed to our clients.
Conventional estimating practices have long been inefficient and outdated, employed by those with far too much on their plates. There is a beauty in specialization. A professional estimator’s only job is to estimate, as estimates must be thorough, fair and just to be good guides to informed decisions. We are that guide, and our work lays out a better way of getting things done. You get a leg up in negotiations and are better equipped to have intelligent discussions with your clients as you now have a detailed price breakdown of all material, labor, equipment and productivity. We make you look good. And when all is said and done, your estimate remains in our archives to allow for quick revisions or adjustments on the fly.
