Indias fast growing construction, interior decoration and home improvement website www.GharExpert.com on Friday announced the availability of Indias first online home construction cost estimator.

Using this estimator, users can find out about the estimated material and cost required for each stage of their home construction project. For example, if you tell the system you are building a home of 2000 square feet of built area the system will tell you how much material you will need at the time of Foundation, Super structure, Flooring, Plastering and Paint etc.

You can fine tune the estimate by choosing the type of flooring you want to use, the type of paint you want to do in your home, the ratio of cement and sand you would like to use and other such parameters. The system also provides a comparative study for each alternative available to the user. This type of information is immensely helpful in planning the construction cost and making sure that the project is completed within the budgeted cost.

For years the home construction users have been struggling with the problem that the money runs out before the home construction completes. The timely completion of Delhi Metro project and other big construction projects have shown that if we employ proper planning and construction estimation techniques then we can save time, money and also improve the quality of our construction projects.
