Wednesday, September 30, 2009 launches Build Cost Estimator, the online service for those looking for competitive quotes from tradesmen for specific domestic jobs or those undertaking a completely new build, have just launched their new Build Cost Estimator service.

The Build Cost Estimator allows people to send their house plans for assessment and within a few days, will return a detailed list of everything that they need to build the house right down to the nails in the skirting board.

Director of, Tony Aherne, explains, "Building your own home will probably be the single most expensive project that you will ever undertake. It is vital that you take every single cost into consideration so that you know exactly what your project is going to cost. Customers will receive a detailed list of everything including quantities for material and labour and average prices in their area".

Tony outlines the advantages for those using the Build Cost Estimator from the initial planning stages. "Banks are now beginning to look for detailed quotes in order to process mortgages. With the breakdown provided by the Build Cost Estimator, those looking for approval are more likely to receive it if they include a breakdown of costs". He continues, "Not alone will the customer receive an estimated cost of the build by stage and in total, but customers will know how much they should be paying for materials so will know if they are being overcharged. Also, as we provide a timeline, customers will know when and what to order which will speed up their build".
