- Commercial appraisals Review by Gene
- After using the big name cost manual for years, I thought that I would try Craftsman. I should have done this years ago. I haven't used the software much, but I have used the manual for several commercial projects. The costs are accurate for my area and the manual is much easier to use than the big name's. It took a little studying to understand how the manual works, but it was well worth it! (Posted on 4/11/2019)
