What are Digs Estimates?
A Digs Estimate™ is an estimated cost to build a particular space, computed using real-world data from contractors such as size, materials, finish level and regional labor rates. It is not an official contractor estimate. It is a starting point in determining a project’s cost and does not include structural or utility work, permits or taxes. Digs Estimates are currently available for kitchens and bathrooms.
