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 50% - 55% profit margin.

How much profit should I produce from my projects?
