REPAIR COST ESTIMATES

This tool provides a list of the estimated costs to upgrade or replace the major systems and components in a typical home. It also provides a general guideline for the life-expectancies of those systems.
These estimates reflect the average basic costs for supplies and installation of building materials in United States and Canada. Costs may vary depending on regions, upgrades, complexity and disposal fees.

It is strongly recommended that you obtain a minimum of three written quotes from reputable licensed local contractors for validation.
