How to Use Takeoffs on Houzz Pro

With takeoffs on Houzz Pro, you can easily create an estimate directly from your construction plans, in only a few minutes. Takeoffs are your tool for saving time.

Takeoffs help you get the numbers you need to create your estimate, including measurements for walls and flooring, the quantity of doors and windows, the amount of raw materials needed, and more.

Watch this tutorial to learn more about takeoffs:

You can create a takeoff from within a project or lead, or from the homepage and then assign it to a project or lead. Just upload a floor plan to the takeoffs feature and set the scale from the Page Settings in the lower left corner.

Then begin dragging and marking to calculate the measurements and quantities. You can create groups for different materials, areas, components, or more, and save them as favorites for your future takeoffs.

Once you're finished, click the Review & Estimate button. To share the takeoff by email, click the Email Markups button, and to create an estimate from a takeoff, click the Start New Estimate button. Then you can edit the estimate, add materials and labor costs to the line items, and share it with your client.
