XactRemodel Features

Sketch

Graphically draw the existing structure and proposed remodel.

XactRemodel’s patented Sketch technology enables you to quickly draw an existing structure and the proposed remodel as a floor plan or in 3D, make requested changes, and change the 3D texture to explore different colors and materials. With Sketch, you can even draw a series of rooms, draw complex roof systems with dormers and multiple roof lines, and accurately estimate a deck—including the stairs, railings, and footers—in minutes.

Macros and Templates

Quickly save and retrieve commonly used estimate items or previous estimates.

XactRemodel’s Macros and Templates make estimating faster by automating common tasks. The Macros enable you to quickly save and retrieve commonly used items in an estimate in a single click. In addition, the Templates allow you to save often-used estimates or parts of estimates as templates that include estimate items and the floor plan. Not only are these features completely customizable, but they can help drastically reduce the amount of time that you spend estimating.
