Masonry Estimating And Takeoff


The most direct means of determining the number of concrete masonry units needed for any project is to simply determine the total square footage of each wall and divide by the surface area provided by a single unit specified for the project.

Masonry construction is more expensive than some other building material commonly seen in houses and other structures. That’s because the materials and building process are more labor intensive. The cost often pays off in the end because high quality masonry is built to last and looks great.

We have an experienced team of dedicated and professional masonry estimators. They are well-qualified to understand your upcoming project needs and takeoff requirements. We provide you with detailed masonry takeoffs that will ensure that you understand your break-even point in any upcoming tenders and decide how to proceed with that.

We provide masonry takeoffs for both private and public construction projects including all types of residential and commercial building projects.
