Material Takeoff Sheets
Material takeoff refers to a term widely used in engineering and construction, and it includes a catalog of materials involving quantities and types which are necessary to produce a designed structure or item. The catalogue of requisite materials for construction is often mentioned as the Material Take Off List (MTOL).
A material take-off sheet contains a comprehensive list with various listing columns like roofing materials, door knobs, mortar, lumber, concrete, sockets, shower heads, windows etc.
There are also columns for the quantity of the materials and the unit prices of these materials. To obtain a precise estimation cost, the spreadsheet must be perfect.
If your home construction plans include materials take-off lists, please ensure that nothing (the concrete for the driveway or the lumber for your deck) is omitted.
This estimating spreadsheet will facilitate the contractor to sum up the total price concerning materials, charged labor as well as percentage of materials which create the estimate price for the clients.
This estimating spreadsheet is useful for handling bigger structures as well as ascertaining total weight of the item and moving the item in a superior manner (if required) once the construction is finished. The material takeoff sheet can also be applied to generate a bill of materials (BOM).
