H & L Estimating Services has done takeoffs with Planswift for over 6 Years.  We usually export all takeoffs to Microsoft Excel or PDF so that we can provide estimates to our clients.

Takeoff Software and Construction Estimating Software


Our #1 objective to provide a complete customized estimate that our clients understand. Though we are constantly working to insure our customers are satisfied with the quality, competitive pricing and the timely manner of our service, we would not be doing our jobs if our clients couldn't understand what they are bidding. In other words, our objective is to build our estimates with you in mind.


My name is Gabriel Hernandez, president of H & L Estimating Services Inc. From the time I started my career as a mason tender for my father’s masonry company, I have always been intrigued by the way variables like labor production rates, supplier pricing, project difficulty, and even location affected the cost of a job.

Later, I realized how effectively breaking down the costs of any trade can be used to properly and systematically price any project. As a result of these principles, I made the determination that I can bid any trade, at any time, given enough information.

After receiving my contractor’s license, I decided to begin working in the general contractor’s field, which allowed me to combine all my knowledge about each trade in order to compose one qualified bid. I began to visualize the project come together, like a jigsaw puzzle. 

I opened this business because I felt there was a need for our services. Through the years, I have had encounters with sub contractors and contractors alike that seemed to be lacking an element. They needed an estimator that can work a job or two without the cost of a full time employee, or maybe they did the estimates themselves and were having a hard time with the plans, or it could simply be that they didn't have the time and were losing opportunities to bid other projects. Whatever the case may be; We, at H & L Estimating Services, are here for all your estimating needs.
