Introuction
Provides the 300 most useful manhour tables for practically every item of construction. Labor requirements are listed for sitework, concrete work, masonry, steel, carpentry, thermal and moisture protection, door and windows, finishes, mechanical and electrical. Each section details the work being estimated and gives appropriate crew size and equipment needed. Includes a CD-ROM with an electronic version of the book with National Estimator, a stand-alone Windows™ estimating program, plus an interactive multimedia video that shows how to use the disk to compile construction cost estimates.

Book Info
Collected in this single volume are the building estimator's most useful reference tables:
- Manhours for installing nearly every type of construction material, including site work, concrete work, masonry, steel, carpentry, thermal & moisture protection, doors & windows, finishes, specialties, equipment, plumbing, mechanical and electrical.
- Material requirement tables that answer the questions: What type is needed? How much should I order?
- Each section explains in detail the work being estimated, recommends the appropriate crew size and suggests what equipment is needed.
- Many pages of illustrations, estimating pointers and explanations of the work being estimated are also included.
If you estimate the cost of residential, industrial or commercial construction, this manual will become your most used and most useful estimating reference.

This second edition has been revised to reflect changes in the construction industry since the original edition was published: the use of pneumatic-driven nails for roofing and framing, elimination of nearly all asbestos-containing materials, the introduction of new materials for plumbing, siding, roofing, paneling and other applications, and revision of manhour tables to reflect more recent experience.

National Estimator Disk for Windows™ comes Free with This Reference Manual
Inside the back cover of this book you'll find National Estimator, a CD-ROM with all the manhour estimating tables in the book plus the easy-to-use estimating program for Windows™ called National Estimator.

National Estimator works just like a book. Turn quickly to the table on any page by typing the page number, or use the electronic index to search (in seconds) by keyword.

Then select the cost estimates you want and copy them from the database (the top half of the screen) to your estimating form (the bottom half of the screen). It's quick and easy (costs are extended and columns totaled automatically). And it's flexible. You can:
- Change any price or quantity.
- Add new lines or even entire sections to the database.
- Set your own labor rates, overhead and profit.
- Enter your actual material cost.
- Type right into an estimate any description or cost you choose.
- Create a specialized costbook database for each type of work you handle (such as remodeling, insurance repair work or change orders).

Then either print the completed estimate directly or transfer it to your favorite word processing or spreadsheet program. National Estimator will become your most useful estimating tool.

Ken Holmes (writing in the March 1995 Remodeling magazine) recommended National Estimator and called it an "Estimating Wiz."

Complete instructions for using National Estimator begin on page 361 of this manual.
