In the construction industry, a set of blueprints (either printed or digital) are typically given to general contractors and subcontractors and then asked to provide a quote detailing how much it would cost to perform their specialized trade. A take-off is simply the measurement of blueprints to determine the number of materials needed to complete any job.
As you may have experienced on your own, it can be difficult and somewhat tedious to make an accurate takeoff by hand. Historically, with paper blueprints, scale rulers, and calculators, these takeoffs were all done by hand. Starting even a small project by hand is a time-consuming process and can last several days when working on a larger project, such as a multi-floor office building.
In contrast, Ryon Cramer Consulting’s Blueprint Takeoff Service in Ohio is convenient, quick, and provides accurate takeoff estimates. To succeed in your business efforts, we strive to equip you with the tools and support you need.
How do Takeoffs work?
These days, the construction industry is rapidly migrating towards using digital blueprints and blueprint takeoff services. Our Diagram and estimating service in Ohio professionals will calculate the number of materials needed based on assumptions you have defined as specific to your particular project. In this way, you will save time and increase the accuracy of your measurements with blueprint takeoff services.
Benefits of Takeoff services by Ryon Cramer Consulting
There are various benefits to using blueprint takeoff services. Arguably the biggest benefit to using this service is that it is much faster than alternative manual takeoff methods. In general, you can expect takeoffs to be between two and four times faster when hiring a good takeoff service versus performing calculations on your own. This means you will save hours or even days of work when you are working on large-scale projects.
Saving so much time when time is money allows you to put money back into your pocket by bidding and gaining more work. Or you can choose to spend more with family and friends and not in the office using that extra time!
Another important benefit to using blueprint takeoff service is increased accuracy. There are many ways to make mistakes in your calculations when gauging by hand. You may accidentally use the wrong scale, misread your ruler, incorrectly position your ruler, type the wrong number in the calculator, double-count, or miscount, for example. These are all human errors that may be avoided or eliminated entirely when using professional services. This makes sure your takeoff is as precise as possible!
