Confidence in Accurate Custom Millwork Estimates
Whether a custom millwork project is design build or design-bid-build, the client needs a highly accurate estimate of total costs. Windham Millwork provides detailed estimates for two reasons: staying within budget and avoiding costly surprises.
A formal estimate must go beyond a purely conceptual guess even when based on historical data. We provide an advanced design-development workup that allows our clients to easily compare bids and feel confident that Windham Millwork will complete exceptional millwork within our formal bid.
Specific Factors in Custom Millwork Estimates
Windham Millwork involves our clients at every step of the estimate process. We provide specific samples of materials and act as partners in the design phase. We know that when our client has that level of input, it removes the difficulty in pinpointing costs based on client-selected materials and designs. It also enables our dedicated estimating team to accurately determine the labor sources and costs. Addressing material, labor, equipment, and risk factors is crucial to a successful project.
Specific Factors Impacting Custom Millwork Projects:
Shifting Service Provider Schedules • Vetting Sub-Tier Contractors and Suppliers
Coordination with Every Vendor Involved in the Project • Proper Backing
Appropriately Assessing Regulations and CC&Rs • Down Time for Expected Trade Work
Windham Millwork prepares accurate, detailed estimates that can include counting square footage, lineal footage, computing labor costs, benchmark data for installations, historic data on bids both won and lost, considerations for wood species and other complexities. We seek out cost saving strategies, material exchanges, value engineering, and fabrication techniques to lower the total costs. We have the knowledge, skills, experience, and historical data to provide our clients with estimates they can rely on.
