Frequently Asked Questions
Where Do the Repair Costs Come From?
The repair costs that are preloaded into the Home Remodeling Cost Calculator are a combination of actual costs that I’ve paid and data from a number of national repair cost databases that I monitor. Costs are updated every 3-6 months. I also add new repair items occasionally as my users request them.
I Want to Use This on a Mac, Will It Work?
Yes! All you need to run the Home Remodeling Cost Calculator is a browser and an internet connection. Its been tested on a Mac, PC, IPad, Android tablet and even on an IPhone using Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers. Sign up for the Free Trial by clicking on the button at the bottom of this page to try it out on all the devices you own.
I Have a List of Materials I Normally Use, Can I Add Those?
You can add as many materials as you like. Once you do, they will immediately appear as drop down selections for every repair line item that they apply to. You can also change any of the included labor or materials costs both at the system level (so the change applies universally) or at the line item level (so the change only applies to a single line item in a specific house).
