Frequently Asked Questions

How does Cordell Costings work?
Cordell Information has been collecting construction data since 1971. Our huge datasets know the average cost of nearly all the components that go into building and construction – both in terms of materials and trade hours. This creates pricing based on thousands of products to help you avoid under or over quoting.

Do I need to start from scratch?
No, you do not need to build your projects from scratch in our database. We have templates and ‘recipes’ that will help you quickly get started with typical projects.

Can I override costs and put in my own rates?
Yes. You can enter your own costs and save them for future reference to use on future jobs. You can even add various overheads.

Do I need to input all of my costing data?
No, our Estimator Platinum can even cost jobs based on the plans that you upload into the system by quickly “grabbing” the costs associated with sections of the plan that you highlight.

What are the names of the products through which I can access Cordell Costings?
Our main product in this section is Estimator Platinum, however, you can also access the costings databases through our API or our calculators.
