Local Area Cost Data
For 50 years HomeTech has provided contractors with the most reliable pricing data available. All data is local area specific, by zip code, and is not a national averaging model like other programs use. Our research staff contacts hundreds of your local suppliers to give pin-point accuracy in material costs. We track labor costs for over 250 different areas of the U.S. and Canada so your rates will be competitive with other successful remodelers in your area.
