Don’t have enough time to prepare estimates? We’ve been helping contractors with their electrical estimating since 1975. With us, you only pay us when you use us. 

How Can We Help?

Electrical Resources understands that estimating is an overhead expense that does not earn you one cent of profit, but it is an essential part of your business. To get work you have to submit a bid price and to arrive at a bid price you have to prepare and estimate.

Estimating is time consuming and takes you away from where you earn a profit, which is in the field monitoring and controlling your on-going jobs.

We’ve prepared over 32,000 estimates of all sizes and type. Our electrical estimating fees are reasonable and we’re not part of your payroll. There’s no reason to hire a full-time estimator for a part-time job. Whenever you can lower your overhead, the end result is an increase in our profit.
