Build stronger estimates
Bring us your blueprints for more powerful, accurate estimating

As your partners in the building trade, Preston Feather understands the competitiveness of the industry. We can help you win the projects you’re bidding on, manage your risk, and offer ways to improve the job. Our experienced estimators use state-of-the-art estimating software and procedures, carefully reviewing plan details, providing suggestions on materials options and energy or cost savings opportunities — all conforming to your specific needs. Your blueprints are translated accurately into materials lists and project cost estimates. Sophisticated software helps turn around material take-offs rapidly. We partner with leading suppliers to confirm engineered wood product specifications for each project (beams, floor systems, trusses).

Superior grade lumber means cost savings
Preston Feather supplies an "appearance grade product" which is more appealing aesthetically and less subject to the defects — wane, knot size and structure, bowing, cupping, and checking — commonly found in inferior grades. Fewer defects = less culling = lower production cost (labor) = cost savings.
