Federal Way, Wash.-based Weyerhaeuser has unveiled its Estima software and services, which help building material dealers improve the accuracy and thoroughness of their take-offs for structural framing products.
With Estima, dealers can develop consistent and clear material estimates, saving time and money. A dealer’s technical staff can set up profiles for individual customers, separate yard locations and automatically incorporate other details into estimates.
“Weyerhaeuser Distribution works closely with building material dealers to help them do their jobs easier and be a valued resource to their builder customers,” said Nate Jorgensen, VP Ddistribution for Weyerhaeuser. “Getting the take-off right often makes the difference between whether a job is profitable or not for the dealer. Estima software and services provide dealers with a better way to manage material lists, and speed up the take-off process. The tools also help reduce short-load orders, saving time and money on deliveries, while improving customer satisfaction.”
Weyerhaeuser serves the residential, multi-family and light commercial construction sectors from 30 facilities. Weyerhaeuser Distribution carries Weyerhaeuser and Trus Joist-branded structural frame products, along with specialty building products, including siding and trim, insulation and housewrap, steel concrete reinforcing materials, plywood, OSB, cedar products and a range of customized regional product offerings.
