Customer Reviews

Great reference! Review by Kenny Oswald.
Great reference book. I use it all the time (since 2005). It has useful information for an estimator along with accurate labor and material costs. Can't beat that for the price. (Posted on 10/25/2016)
Terrific. Review by J. Barnes.
I'm a homeowner trying to renovate a 208 year old house. The Craftsman books were a godsend! Our contractors were amazed at the preciseness of our offers. I don't know how many actually bought their own copies but they surely wanted to see the estimate results. I can't say enough about the overall practical use of the Craftsman books. Just a terrific service all around. (Posted on 10/25/2016)
