I wish home improvement websites let me... calculate cost of materials online before going to the store.

For example, I would like to build a fence. I know the measurements. I would like to be able to go onto a website, like Home Depot, Lowes, or Home Hardware and price out all the lumber. Then I know how expensive it would be.

Or use a simple calculator, if you know what your sales tax is...

I used to have a program from Home Depot that had the entire store inventory and you could build an order and quote for the items. I haven't used it in 15 years, I got it in the Pro-Service area as I recall.

I've only seen separate sites that do the computations before, but those are estimates. Seems like the checking out to cart is a better option.
