Simple concrete calculators are work great for backyard projects but are not well suited for professional use. These simple programs, often online, lack the ability to handle the complex calculations found in construction estimating.
For construction estimating companies need a more advanced calculator of concrete in the way of a takeoff and estimating software program. These programs, like PlanSwift, allow estimators to add material lists to the concrete areas, even tools and labor can be added. PlanSwift can also handle irregularly shaped items, and those with curves.
This allows for an amazingly simple yet accurate concrete calculation, a calculation that would not have been possible any other way.
Thousands of contractors are already using PlanSwift as a part of their business, but the makers of this amazing program understand the best way understand how much it can do it to let you use it for FREE. They know that once you have done just a couple of concrete estimates with PlanSwift you will never want to return to doing estimates the way you have been doing them.
Concrete and Masonry Estimating and Takeoff Software
Concrete and masonry jobs are already labor intensive enough, so why add to your workload by using a manual plan takeoff process for estimates? PlanSwift is the #1 takeoff and estimating software for the construction industry.
How much concrete do you need for that next foundation job? How many 8″ blocks are in that estimate that’s due tomorrow? With PlanSwift you can determine everything from lengths of rebar to how many yards of concrete should be on the next truck. You will quickly and accurately compile material assemblies for any foundation or poured wall scenario as well as brick and block structures.
How do you calculate brick counts when you have excluded areas like windows and doors? PlanSwift automatically makes the deduction with a click of the mouse. Plus PlanSwift gives you the ability to account for adjustments on the fly, saving you from recalculating change orders by hand.
