Exclusive to EstimatorXpress you can link to thousands of live building material prices using our Price Tracker™ service to keep pace with building material prices increases.

You can also add in your own building material prices from specialist merchants and EstimatorXpress will colour code these materials for you to prompt you to keep them up-to-date.
It's often easy to forget to factor in the wear and tear of a shovel, wheelbarrow or perhaps the use of a tube of mastic lying in the van. Ensure you make maximum profit by including every material in your estimate - every time with the Profit, Wastage and Inflation calculator built into EstimatorXpress.
