Note: this article is about how markup and margin are different, if you're looking for an article explaing how to add markup (margin) then click here.

Buildxact uses markup through the system (with the exception of Gross Profit) as opposed to margin (which is a different calculation) because this is the most common way that small builders/custom-home builders and trades calculate profit when estimating.

Note: we've had many users over the years describe their profit as margin but the math they're actually doing is that of markup so it's important to know the difference.
