No single estimating software package is right for every masonry contractor. Most estimating software can be customized to meet a contractor's particular needs, and some programs are compatible with other applications, such as accounting or job cost. A few estimating systems can be used with digitizers (programmable stylus pens that convert blueprints into digital data) for rapid material take-offs.Be sure to do considerable research and consult with a manufacturer extensively before purchasing estimating software. Also, find out when the software was last updated and whether the manufacturer can provide ongoing technical support.

TUT masonry estimating software
TUT Estimating has many masonry-specific features, such as production-based labor, in which mason-day production costs are combined with crew-day costs to reflect in-the-wall unit labor. This software also allows users to charge equipment by the crew day and allocate cleaning by the square foot. When a contractor with TUT Software wins a bid, TUT automatically sets up job-cost tracking. TUT Estimating is fully integrated with the software developer's other applications

Tradesmen's masonry estimating software
In contrast to TUT Software, Tradesmen's masonry estimating software has more estimating knowledge and formulas built into the program. This user-friendly product is a fast and easy estimating tool, even for people who are unfamiliar with computers. With this Windows-driven program, an estimator can click and drag a complicated wall assembly into a wall take-off in just 5 seconds, instantly creating a detailed material/bid price report. Any special pieces, fittings or variations in mortar color can be calculated at the same time as the regular material and labor costs. The software can be integrated with job cost, accounting and digital plan-measuring systems. Proposals that are generated can be faxed right from the estimating program.
