    Hello Everyone,

    I'm new in the biz with some commercial accounts to bid on, are there any websites I can get info on estimating? Any literature available that someone may know of? I'm basically subbing out the work and have received my estimates, just wanted to start learning on how they bid, the sub I'm using dosen't want to share his formula (which I can understand). Just thought I'd see what the pros have to say. Thanks in advance for any leads......

    Well at first it's kinda a guessing game. You just need to figure out what everything costs you to do per hour, then add a profit, and maybe some more. Each area is different. My area I can only get so much, but I would like to get more (everyone does) like some other guys can get on here.
