What is a profitability calculator for?

A profitability calculator is a simple way to show how much profit you generated from your previous project.

Remember, the amount you profit on a project is the direct costs associated with producing that project deducted from the amount you charged for the project.

How much profit should I produce from my projects?

Depending on the source, the industry average profit margin in the construction space is ~25%. Unfortunately, when accounting for slippage and overhead, that profit gets eaten up pretty quickly. We recommend charging a 55% profit margin.

How much profit should I produce from my projects?

A 55% profit margin allows for enough financial padding so that when slippage and overhead occur, each project grows the bank balance.

Most contractors are concerned that charging a 55% profit margin will price themselves out of the market. If you’d like to talk to an advisor to understand exactly how to do this in your market, schedule a call with an advisor.
