  • What services do you provide?

    • Estimating - prior to having enough information to bid a project, owners often need to know what their project will cost.  We provide that early estimate, and base it on all of the information available at the time of the estimate.

    • Expert Witness - Mr. DeBruyn's long experience in the industry gives him insight to cost and other construction disputes invaluable during negotiations and litigation.

    • Insurance Reconciliation - When the insurance company offers you less than you believe is owed after your disaster, we can request the right documents, and review them to maximize your fair recovery.

  • How does it work?

    • Clients typically provide some documentation of the project they would like to have estimated, sometimes as little as an address and some photos.  ​

    • We review the documents and propose a fee for the service.

    • The client approves the fee, and provides any additional information that becomes available.

    • We produce the estimate, by the date we agree to, and provide the necessary support to reconcile, reformat or otherwise adjust the estimate to fit the clients needs.
