Estimating Exterior Insulating Finishing Systems (EIFS)

Inaccurate, error prone estimates can mean trouble to an Exterior Insulating contractor. Inaccuracy leads to estimates that don’t win you projects or result in operating losses. If your estimates are accurate you still need to have the capability to produce enough estimates to meet crunch time demands. Finally, you need your estimates to be consistent so that clear communication is achieved within your organization, your clients and your vendors.

The best tool for Exterior Insulating contractors is The EDGE. It is an end-to-end complete solution; it is trade specific and customized for your needs. Our product is designed with advanced technology that accounts for every detail and provides you with an accurate, consistent and automatic estimate-creating machine to build your business. The Estimating Edge truly gives your Exterior Insulating business a competitive edge.
