Resource Highlight: MCAA’s Service Markups vs. Construction Markups

June 17, 2022

Markups provide funds to cover overhead costs, a fair and reasonable profit, and some cushion in case estimated costs are exceeded. MCAA’s Service Markups vs. Construction Markups discusses the elements of a job estimate that may be considered for markups. It’s just one of MCAA’s educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership.

The bulletin covers:

  • How overhead differs between service and construction contractors
  • The role of markups in providing a return on investment
  • Risk factors, and how they differ between service and construction contractors
