As a part of estimating electrical checklist, it is important to start by reading notes & specifications.
This blog explains the importance of reading notes and specifications on electrical blueprints before starting to estimate.
Red Rhino has a Specification Check List form available for download. It is one of several electrical estimating checklists used.
Below is an example of a electrical estimating specification checklist regarding underground conduit. It explains which elbows are required.
Item D above shows: PVC Conduit may be used underground or below concrete slabs. It says “ Provide (PVC) coated rigid steel elbow for all elbows where PVC is used.”
There is a big price difference between PVC elbows and PVC coated rigid elbows. Missing this detail would cost a lot of money.

Reading the specs can save you from making costly mistakes.
