Estimating Services

Having been a contractor for over 18 years and in the trades, for more than 30 years I understand that you cannot make money at a desk doing estimates. I have a process that is truly easy to follow and breaks everything down into 4 simple groupings A) Non-Productive Labor B) Office/Job Site Equipment C) Materials D) Labor*, this allows you to easily adjust our projected estimate and prepare your final bid offering quickly.

Fee Schedule

We require the supply house you wish us to reference material prices through in order to provide you with a material cost breakdown. That Request For Quote “RFQ” will be attached to your documents to support our estimate.
We require that the customer provide the most current set of blueprints, specification book, and related documents along with a 50% deposit. Any Addendum issued in connection to the project will be the client’s responsibility to forward to us for processing at a rate of $75.00 per hour. The remaining balance shall be due prior to the estimate being released to your company. If the bid is not completed on time due to our fault we will refund the deposit in full with 25% because we believe your time is valuable and should not be wasted. Otherwise, the initial deposit is paid to begin work and will not be refunded, for any reason outside it being our fault. Additionally, this is a contract for work, Terrell Electric, LLC will be furnishing a service and will expect payment in full upon completion of that service. The client shall be responsible for all fees connected with collecting on those services.
