3 good reasons to use our estimating service

Here are 3 good reasons why our clients use our in-house estimating service:

1. “This tricky  job will take so much of my time just to do the take-off!”

Sometimes, things get so busy that you don’t want to (or simply cannot afford to) spend much time estimating tricky jobs.


AppliCad helps estimate complex roofs

Complex roof and accessories?


Well, our expert team of estimators are here to take that worry off your shoulders, no matter how simple or complex a job may be.

We thrive on tricky roof situations here at AppliCad, and we have done it for years and years. It makes our estimating service reliable, fast, and efficient.


2. “I just can’t keep up with our job list, why do people all ring at once!”

Would you rather spend more time installing roofs and sending invoices than trying to win more jobs? How does a quote turnaround time of 48 hours instead of a typical week sound?

Do you have too many estimates to handle?

Let us do the chores for you. You can be confident that your quotes will be accurate and quality-tested by our team of expert roof estimators based in Melbourne. We can even produce all reports on your branded templates, so all you need to do is forward them to your client.


3. “I just can’t find any good estimators!” 

Have you recently tried to employ in-house roof estimators but can’t get any? It’s hard to find experienced roof estimators due to the current skills shortage.

Qualified roof estimators are hard to find

Cannot find any qualified roof estimators?

We know the estimators’ job takes a while to learn, and it is a tedious one with a high drop-off rate once you have trained your new staff. On top of that, in phases of low business activity, your estimators do not contribute directly to your bottom line.

Sounds great! How does it work?

Using our Service Bureau is simple. We work with clients all over the World.

You provide us with any of these:

  • Architect’s drawing (PDF)
