A “takeoff” is a list of materials that builders use to estimate how much a construction project will cost. Better By Design can use your plans to create a Materials Takeoff for you and your builder. It will include how much lumber is needed, as well as drywall, brick, siding and more. It all adds up to one master list that allows you to get accurate bids from multiple sources.
