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 suggest 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 third 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.
