Knowing how to install an electric system is as important as accurately estimating a profitable charge for your effort. Rarely taught in apprenticeship programs, this critical skill requires time and effort to do properly. The function of estimating is to take a set of construction drawings and specifications, and transform them into a total dollar price for the work involved. Every contractor will have a different method of estimating ranging anywhere from using expensive software to recording data on graph paper or spreadsheets. The most commonly and easily accessible method for use by contractors today is explained in this Trade Series manual.
