EverLine’s Colorado Franchise Sends Bi-Weekly Bids with PlanHub’s Tools

featured area

“So there are two aspects of it, one is safety, and then the other is customer experience. Because a parking lot is the first thing that you see as a customer of a business, if it looks good, then people are more likely to go to your business. So it’s also a good marketing tool that helps keep your business looking better. Meaning that it’s more likely for people to visit your company rather than your competitors.” Nick LaPointe, EverLine Coatings Of Denver



EverLine is a company & Franchise in Canada and USA. For this specific Case Study, we focused on Nick’s franchise located in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. The company as a whole has been around since 2012, but Nick’s Franchise has been around since 2022. They believe their continued growth is due to their ongoing commitment to delivering great products backed by first-class service.
Nick’s Franchise provides parking lot Asset Management Services, which include anything to do with repairing and maintaining asphalt surfaces as well as striping and power washing. Their team consists of four people, mainly focusing on commercial projects. They have been a PlanHub member since 2023.

“The biggest challenges I have are really finding the projects that fit into my scope of work specifically in terms of size of the project,” said Nick.

One of the biggest challenges Nick and his franchise have is being able to find the correct scope of the project to send a bid on. Their time and resources are limited as their team is very small, and they can’t afford to put their effort into meaningless projects. This is why they leverage PlanHub’s advanced tools and resources to ensure maximum efficiency. With PlanHub, EverLine can accurately estimate projects, track payments, monitor progress, control costs, and send bids. 

To get what you want, you need to understand what you are looking for. This is very important; without the proper resources, one can search endlessly without results. Nick has understood that keyword searching is crucial to find his opportunities. 

Not only will the keywords help him find jobs in his niche, but they will also allow him to take advantage of another PlanHub tool, the Takeoff tool. 

Another thing that Nick has been struggling with is learning how to separate filters to avoid getting miss leading project opportunities. This is why we have recommended PlanHub’s Takeoff tool to him. 


Bidding on construction projects can be a time-consuming and costly process for subcontractors. Estimations are often inaccurate, payment tracking needs to be more efficient, and project management is difficult to manage. This leads to wasted resources and missed opportunities for cost savings. PlanHub’s tools provide an efficient one-stop shop for all bidding on construction projects.

“I use PlanHub because I have a lot of general contractors bidding on the construction projects that I’m interested in all in one place. And there are a lot of tools to make it so that I can search through those projects for what’s the right fit for my company.”

It’s because of this that during a franchise meeting, another EverLine worker recommended PlanHub to Nick. He mentioned how efficient his work would become and suggested Nick take a chance on the tool.

The founders are what got me interested. They’re great people that I think will always have my back. If I need help, I’ve got folks that I can lean on to make sure that anything that is thrown my way whether I can lean on their experience in addition to my own experience,” said Nick.

Nick’s favorite tools today are “ the general contractor and competitive advantage features.”

He has been using PlanHub’s solutions for over two months and knows that he will get the hang of the market of it all sooner or later.


Since opening his Franchise, Nick has been working hard to find his projects. He now knows he has the help of PlanHub’s filters and the Takeoff tool. The Takeoff tool allows you to identify a project, see the project specs and measure precisely by zooming in and zooming out with different highlighters and colored markers to measure the area of space precisely. This allows you not only to measure it, but you can actually build your bids even faster with a calculator that is built in with it.

As Nick mentioned, his clients choose him over his competitors

because we stand by our work and we try to make the process as simple as possible. But the number one thing is we’re willing to communicate with our clients and ensure we do good quality work.”

Nick’s thoughts about the industry are englobed with his customers. He believes that the more value he can bring to someone’s business, the longer the relationship will be.

“I mean, I really hope that it gets good, that all of my clients see the need for it and want to keep up with it to both produce their costs and make sure that all of their spaces look great and are safe for all their customers.”

Nick is a happy customer who would recommend PlanHub to others depending on their project needs. Today, Nick is already sending out bi-weekly bids.

    Bid Leveler & Proposal builder

    Comparing bids to one another has never been easier. Users can now see bids side by side, compare bid amounts, and review subcontractors’ certifications and qualifications all in one place.

    Effectively managed bids during the preconstruction phase set the stage for a successful project execution and satisfied clients.

    Streamline bid management from project posting to estimating, bidding, and awarding in one place with easy project posting, project-contractor automatic matching based on trades, location, and qualification with PlanHub.

    Estimation and TakeOff

    Let’s face it—time is money. And the more time it takes to perform takeoffs and submit bids, the more you risk losing out on valuable revenue opportunities. Manual methods and locally installed desktop software slow your takeoff process, and many digital solutions currently on the market can be overly complex and not user-friendly. 

    Build faster takeoffs, get more bids out the door, and win more projects. Forget pen and paper, outdated desktop software, and overly complicated digital takeoff solutions. PlanHub’s easy-to-use Takeoff tool helps you and your team build accurate takeoffs faster, minimize errors and material waste, and win more projects that boost your business growth. Performing your takeoffs with PlanHub allows you to:

    • Streamline and integrate your process: Perform your takeoffs in the same platform you use to manage your network and bids.
    • Avoid costly estimating errors: Get better accuracy with digital tools instead of traditional, mistake-prone pen and paper.
    • Collaborate easily: Share and work with your team, no matter where you—or they—are located.
    • Submit more bids and win more projects: Get quality bids in front of general contractors faster and get ahead of your competition.

    Document Management

    Organize, store, and manage various documents, blueprints, drawings and other information related to projects before the actual construction phase begins.

    This phase is crucial for setting the foundation of a successful construction project, and effective document management plays a significant role in ensuring that all necessary information is accessible, accurate, and up-to-date to all interested parties.

    Access, review, work on, and share large complex documents in one platform with amazing speed. From project definition, drawing management, takeoff, estimation, bid management, and contracts, everything happens in PlanHub.

    1M+ pre-qualified network

    PlanHub is the leading platform that connects companies, construction professionals, and projects in the pre-construction industry, focusing on building and developing meaningful relationships to enhance efficiency and productivity.

    We have integrated general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers’ workflows in one platform to simplify the complex back and forth usually present in preconstruction. By allowing all interactions to be done through PlanHub, tracking projects and relationships is much easier, saving contractors and material suppliers time and money. Interactions in the platform are tagged and measured to provide insights to users.

    General contractors create bid packages that are shared in PlanHub as projects. They can include templatized lists of all CSI cost items as part of the new Baseline feature. Baseline allows for faster and more accurate bid requests, facilitates homogenization of subcontractors’ bids, and simplifies the comparison of incoming bids.

    Subcontractors are automatically matched with relevant projects based on their profile, preferences, and pre-qualification information saving hours of research to both sides. They can review project details, documentation, and blueprints.
