Our Estimating Software will Revolutionize the Way You Do Business.
Are you tired of using a calculator, pencil, highlighter and guesswork for your takeoffs? Concerned about accuracy? If so, our Roof Estimating Software is here to help. You will be able to calculate the tile, drip edge, hip / valley flashing, vents, gutters, tar paper, wood underlay, cost, waste and labor in no time, just point-and-click.
Ever wished you could just create assemblies or groups of items that you use all the time? You can now, group the items in whatever way makes sense to you and apply them to any part of the take off. In other words, click the perimeter of a roof, input the slope and drop the assembly on it that includes everything you need (wood underlay, tar paper, tiles, pricing and even nails). Now you will know the cost instantly for any roof.
How does it Work? You begin by loading the electronic blueprints (the entire job if you wish) directly from the planroom, AutoCAD or practically any other digital plan right into our Estimating Software. After that you begin your calculations simply by pointing and clicking! No digitizer or stack of plans needed (you can still use them with our software if you wish).
We also import files from almost any file type be it a CAD file (DXF, DWF, DWG), a Plan file, a PDF, a TIF, a JPG, a scan, you name it we probably import it.
"We have been using this software now for the past 6 months, and the amount of time it has saved is staggering. The program is very intuitive, simple to use, powerful, and has dead on accuracy."

"PlanSwift is very easy to use. It is both versatile and accurate. During takeoffs, I am able to easily navigate through the system with little, if any difficulty. With the system updating almost every week, the product gets quicker and quicker to use. The old way of calculating and estimating is a nightmare in comparison to this. Also, I am able to put my templates on a zip drive and take them home with me. I love it. Awesome is the best way I can describe it. Thank you Planswift."

When estimating the mean material needs for a construction project you are looking to determine the average amount that will be needed. This is extremely useful with dealing with materials that are easily arranged or that flow. Cement, mortar, gravel, rocks, and sand are on the top of the most lists.
The amount of material in a given area may vary but the average or mean amount of material for a larger area should be within a normal range.
“PlanSwift is an accurate and efficient means for taking off and estimating in today’s market. You are able to use several downloads and formats from web based sites to input into PlanSwift to create estimates. I have used this program side by side with several different softwares and compared it to the digitized information as contractors usually use and have found that the margin of accuracy was at most 2% difference from alternate methods. In today’s market every quantity counts and your accuracy is the biggest ally you have when pricing these jobs. I would strongly recommend PlanSwift to anyone in the construction or estimating market, and have.”-Dubose Construction Company LLC / Nathan Edwards
Take pouring a sidewalk as an example, because the base lay of material will not be perfectly flat and solid the amount of cement on top to create a smooth level walkway will vary. If the base was laid well the variance should not be much, but is the foundation is off the cement thickness will vary greatly.
However, even though the thickness will vary from point to point in the end the highs should equal the lows proving you with an average thickness of material.
“I’ve been in the Design-Build industry for more than 20 years and used a lot of sophisticated estimating programs like W****t, but it is incredible the potential that was unleashed when I started use PlanSwift, first the uncomplicated way to use it and secondly the convenience of customizing it to yours need and finally, the affordable price that you invest in the software. Awesome!”-RAS Construction Corp / Reiner A. Sanchez
By using the mean amount of material needed in PlanSwift you can come up with an accurate total amount for your estimating and takeoff needs.
