The difference between SolidBuilder Design Software and our BidBuilder Estimating Software is all about what you are required to perform for your prospect …

If you are creating the design and blueprints, then SolidBuilder Design Software will create a takeoff from your design as you design it.

BidBuilder estimating software is used when you are NOT designing. BidBuilder is used when you are asked to bid a project based on blue prints / plan drawings.

Our Estimating Software (BidBuilder) provides the ability to digitally perform a takeoff (point and click on the plan) and create a professional estimate straight from a set of plans. To see how our Estimating Software works and view Reports, Proposals and more sample output click Continue below.
