“I have a mate who is an electrical contractor and he was telling me that he spent three weeks pricing a £200,000 job by hand. I told him that with my estimating and PDF take off software, I started a £700,000 job yesterday and finished it today!”

Masonry estimating software
Masonry estimating calculator for a fast masonry estimate
There’s always money in bricks and mortar, and a masonry estimating calculator is the fast way to work out just how many bricks, how much mortar and how much money. RapidQuote’s simple and accurate masonry estimating software is designed to get you out of the office and back onto site before your brickies and subbies notice you’ve gone.
RapidQuote’s masonry estimating software streamlines and automates as much of the take off and quoting process as possible, turning a five hour energy-sapping paperwork binge into 60 minutes of efficient, accurate estimating.
See how much you can save by taking our masonry estimating calculator for a spin.
“As much as I would hate to help any of my competitors, I have to completely endorse RapidQuote in all that it offers for a business. Our quotation rate has increased from 50 to over 200 quotations per month.”
“RapidQuote is a lifesaver. It’s so easy to use, I just open the drawings and within minutes I have scaled, marked and priced up all my materials and labour. It has increased the speed that we can win work four times over, at least.”
“At last, take-offs for the 21st century! After years spent marking up drawings with highlighters and producing takeoff sheets, this is a revolution in estimating. Just can’t live without it – I now takeoff five projects in the time it used to take to do just one.”
“RapidQuote easily saves me 90% of my takeoff time, so it’s extremely useful for projects that need a quick turnaround. Brilliant software that is so easy to use.”
“Now, overall from top to bottom, RapidQuote’s software saves me about 70% of my time, and that makes an amazing difference. Quotes that took me five days before now take me less than two days, and I’ve only been estimating since January.”
“I work as an estimator Monday-to-Friday, 9-to-5, and your software and support is first class. I can takeoff and price well over 10 drawings in less than an hour, this used to take me half a day before! I just love how simple it is.”
“We used to do takeoffs with a scale rule and a pencil which was very time consuming and now we have a much quicker takeoff time. We only spend around 1 – 2 hours doing takeoffs with RapidQuote’s software and before it used to take us about 5 or 6 hours.”
“We used to have a three or four-process estimate which was over-complicated, but now we have a simple, one-process estimate. We definitely recommend!”
“Time saving is the biggest advantage for us by far. RapidQuote saved us about 80% of our time and increased our productivity 50%.”
An accurate masonry estimate, without all the hassle
Chances are you saw that line about estimates taking five hours and gritted your teeth. All those hours of scaling walls and working out how many blocks you’d need. All those wasted afternoons in the queue at the printers, hoping that these drawings are the right ones, and that the architect’s not moved a wall six foot to the left.
Well, you’re not alone. Building contractors and masonry professionals have been telling us for years about the hassle they have to go through to take off a drawing and put together accurate quants for their estimates. So we did something about it. We developed a tool to make it easier. Here’s how estimating a masonry job with RapidQuote works:
- Open the ZIP file full of tender drawings with RapidQuote
- Click yes or no to select the plans you want and add them to your estimate folder
- Use the software’s tools to scale, highlight and count materials on each drawing
- Open the quantity spreadsheet that RapidQuote has generated and smile when you spot that it’s added all the quants to begin with
- Add your material prices and labour rates and let the spreadsheet do the work
- Send everything to the client, safe in the knowledge that it’s all accurately priced
If there’s a simpler, more effective piece of masonry estimating software out there, we’d love to see it. And we’re sure it won’t be as affordable as RapidQuote.
