After working all day on-site or running between projects checking on progress, you come home only to have to sit at your computer to find more insulation tenders that have landed in your inbox that all need to be returned yesterday.

So now you have to sit there until late at night and take off pipe and ductwork to price these jobs up because your client is jumping up and down for the quote.

That’s where Chase Estimating comes in. We will take the burden of these tenders off your shoulders and turn them around for you in time for your client’s deadline, with little to no input required from yourself.

You will have more time to do what matters, whether that’s working on your business instead of in it, spending time with your loved ones or even just getting some time back to relax and recharge.


Chase Estimating can claim to be the only, dedicated insulation estimating service worldwide owing to the fact our founder, Samuel Hitch hails from a thermal insulation / building services background.

For many years Sam owned a successful thermal insulation contractor before transitioning to focusing solely on helping other clients win more projects, whilst giving them time back to focus on the more important aspects of their business or their personal life.

As someone who has actually run a subcontractor successfully for many years, Samuel brings something to the table that you will not be able to find with another mechanical insulation estimating service in the world.

We are willing and able to offer our expertise and advice to help you tender for insulation projects, free of charge as part of our service.
