Our Achievements

Today HomeTech is one of the largest publishers of estimating books and software. Tens of thousands of construction professionals have grown to depend on the very best in estimating and business management information from HomeTech

History of HomeTech

In 1965, Henry Reynolds and Walt Stoeppelwerth decided to start a company to provide much needed unit cost estimating and business management information to construction professionals. They first published The HomeTech Remodeling & Renovation Cost Estimator Manual, as a shirt pocket sized, 122 page publication.

Walt and Henry soon determined that construction professionals were also in need of training on how to determine pricing using the unit cost estimating methodology and, construction professionals also needed business management training to help them run their businesses.

Walt began traveling the country giving seminars to thousands of construction professionals educating them on unit cost estimating and business management. And, for years, Walt wrote a monthly column for Remodeling Magazine. Henry continued to perfect the cost estimator manuals and build a solid foundation for the successful company HomeTech would grow into.

HomeTech Today

HomeTech continues to publish the HomeTech Remodeling & Rennovation Cost Estimator manual which now encompasses over 17,000 items listed at local costs for over 250 areas across the U.S and Canada. HomeTech also publishes the HomeTech Kitchen & Bath Cost Estimator and HomeTech House Builders Cost Estimator manuals.

HomeTech has expanded its estimating tools and now also offers estimating software to help construction professionals accurately price their jobs. Using the same pricing methodology at the Cost Estimator manuals, CostEstimator.com is an online tool available to construction professionals to help them create accurate, professional estimates.
