Building a construction estimate

Has anyone actually developed a procedure to build a real construction Estimate with qb? are there samples to view somewhere?


I have been using qb for about 20 years but I always build my estimate with Excel and then just summarize it in qb Estimate. I am using Pro 2013 in Win10.

You've come to the right place, @Charles2247.


I can guide you on how to create a construction estimate. 


Here's how to create a construction estimate:

  1. Go to the Customers menu.
  2. Choose Create Estimate.
  3. Select the Name of your customer
  4. Enter the estimate details.
  5. Click Save and Close

For more detailed instructions, you can check these articles: 

You can also import a customized estimate template, please refer to this article: Use and customize form templates.


Let me know if you have other questions. I'm just a few clicks away.

Really 2013 on a win10 machine?  usually that will not work, don't be surprised if one day it does not.


Look at the sample company, Rock Creek Construction
