Framing Estimating Cost Changes


Starting with Goldenseal 3.2 we have made some minor improvements and changes to a few of the roof framing Assemblies in the Framing estimating cost category.

  • We added fasteners to roof rafter assemblies
  • We increased the labor hours for hip and valley framing
  • We tweaked labor and material quantities in roof trusses, and revised their contract text to use square feet of roof area instead of truss count


If you have Goldenseal 3.1 or earlier, you can import these Assembly changes into your company file.

To add the changes, first download the update file. Follow these steps:

  1. Click this link-- Roof Framing Update.
  2. Save the text file on your hard drive and remember where it is.

Next, import the data into your company file:

  1. Open your company file.
  2. Choose Import from the File menu, and choose **Other Update from the submenu.
  3. Locate the Roof_Framing_Costs text file that you just downloaded from the website.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Goldenseal will automatically change the assemblies.

**If you have an older version of Goldenseal, you may not see the Other Update command. In that case, use the Payroll Update command instead. It does exactly the same thing.
