If you need to estimate the cost of electrical systems in buildings, this book will be your most reliable guide to selecting the right material, figuring the Labor time required for installation, and totaling the installation cost and material price.

Includes a FREE Download Certificate for an electronic version of the book with National Estimator, a stand-alone Windows estimating program. An interactive multimedia video that shows how to use the software to compile construction cost estimates is also available online.

National Estimator works just like a book. Page through the entire book one screen at a time or use the electronic index to search (in seconds) for what you need. Then select the cost estimates you want and copy them to your estimate with the touch of a key. It's quick and easy (costs are extended and columns totaled automatically). And you can change any price or quantity, including subtotals, and add the markup of your choice.

The National Estimator System Requirements:

  • Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista or XP (32- and 64-bit) operating system.
  • PC with 1 gigahertz (GHz) or higher Intel (or equivalent) processor recommended.
  • 160 megabytes (MB) of hard disk space.
  • 512 MB system memory.
  • 1024 x 768 or higher video resolution, video adapter and monitor.
  • Internet connection for automatic updates and other optional program features.

Job Cost Wizard
Turns estimates into invoices and exports both to QuickBooks. Export entire estimates or invoices to track job costs for each item or category in your estimate. Then compare estimated and actual costs for each part of any job. Handles progressive billing (invoices for each part of the job) with QuickBooks Pro.
