This Podcast Is Episode Number 0103 And It Will Be About Contractor Cost Library

A Cost Library Is Another Secret Successful Contractors Use

To Generate Enormous Positive Cash Flow And Profit

Money doesn't grow on trees; it grows inside your properly setup QuickBooks file that is maintained by people who understand construction accounting. All you have to do is follow the Contractors Success M.A.P. and in due time you can become wealthy. This article is going to cover one of the secrets we share with consulting clients known as The Cost Library. 

A cost library is used to develop construction estimates and there are three basic types of cost libraries contractors use:

  • Heuristics - And experience is the most common method since they are essentially shortcuts that reduce the mental energy or cognitive load of making a decision. Contractors also call them Rule of Thumb, SWAG - (Silly Wild All-Encompassing Guess), Past Experience, Intuitive Judgment or common sense.
  • Excel Spreadsheets - Most common among contractors who have made a lost a lot of money using heuristics. These are normally put together over several years of painful losses followed by more and more painful losses. Contractors will spend a bit of time trying to figure out Job Costing and Job Profitability by generating QuickBooks reports. If their QuickBooks setup was done by someone who truly understands construction accounting vs. regular accounting then they have a decent system and are likely earning over $100K a year.
  • Cost Library - Is built on the Excel spreadsheets mentioned above with one HUGE DIFFERENCE. It takes a holistic approach to the contractor's company by adding the Contractors Success M.A.P. of Marketing + Accounting + Production.

Two Sample Remodel Contractors - Each operating in the same geographical area with similar size crews doing roughly the same type of work for homeowners with similar demographic and psychographic profiles.

Contractor #1 Has A Business Plan - And focuses on activities that have the highest likely hood of generating a quick result. The 80 20 rule for construction company owners. They work closely with their business coach to continually update, develop and implement their custom strategy. They needed a business coach who gets his hands dirty, not just a idea people with education and no experience owning an operating contracting companies but an implementation people who have been where you are understands what you need and can teach you how to do it right including The Five Key Performance Indicators.

There Is Duality In QuickBooks Reports

What You See And What You Don't See

When most contractors look at a Profit & Loss report they see two things:

  1. Income is close to the same for each contractor
  2. Net profit is over twice as high for contractor #1 as it is for contractor #2

What You May Have Missed - Are the dozens of things contractor #1 has done to lower the Direct Construction Costs and outsource the bookkeeping services which have resulted in more efficient operations.
