Is Joist a job cost estimating program?
Updated over a week ago

Joist is an app that helps trade contractors win more and bigger jobs with professional looking estimates and invoices, fast and easy payment collection, and convenient homeowner financing options.

While Joist allows contractors to create professional looking estimates from their phone, tablet or computer, Joist is not a construction cost estimating program.

You create your own line items in Joist, such as labour and material, you enter the rates and the quantities, and Joist will calculate the total based on the values you've provided. Joist will store those line items in your account for future use, and you can adjust the values yourself any time.
