Learn to Estimate Accurately and Bid Wisely

Skilled stimating and bidding is a must for any construction business, small or large. Without it, you can go broke on just a job or two. With it, long-term prosperity is possible and a your life is more enjoyable.


Nail Your Numbers, the new book from David Gerstel, author of the construction industry classic, Running a Successful Construction Company, offers a clear path to skilled estimating and bidding. Readers learn to: 

  • Choose the right jobs to bid
  • Accurately estimate labor costs
  • Eliminate oversights in sub quotes
  • Astutely markup for overhead and profit
  • Protect bids during construction
  • Move beyond bidding for free and get paid for pre-construction services

For half the price of a table saw blade, Nail Your Numbers enables builders to produce estimates and bids as true as their best work at their job site.
