Siding Takeoff Software

When you work in construction, time is money. The more time you spend in the office, performing takeoffs and estimates, the less time you spend in the field making a profit.

Of course, without takeoffs, you won’t have enough business coming in to sustain your enterprise. Fortunately, the benefits of digitization provide you with tools such as siding takeoff software to help you optimize the time spent in the office to reduce your overhead.

What exactly is this software and how can it help you get out of the office and back on the job? Take a look at PrebuiltML’s PROtrade software with our free 14-day trial to find out.


PROtrade software is a flexible takeoff system that can generate square foot of siding, linear foot of trim and counts for other items.

PROtrade makes your Siding Takeoff faster and easier.

Quickly create your Database to reflect the Applications and Items you use – Lap Siding, Vinyl Siding, Board Siding and more can be set up once for use in all of your takeoffs. Import your plans (as PDF, Jpeg, Bmp, Png, Jif, Tiff, or Ico) and use the integrated on-screen Digitizer to complete your takeoff. Accurate and user friendly, PROtrade is the solution for your takeoff needs!

What Is Siding Takeoff Software

Siding takeoff software is used to perform your project takeoffs while minimizing the amount of work you need to spend in the office. Not that long ago, takeoffs required you to do everything by hand with paper and pencils as you determined how much of which type of material was needed for that project. Unfortunately, this type of takeoff was prone to mistakes in counting and measuring the material. The result? It was relatively easy to lose a job because a bid was too high. Or, you could lose money on a project because the bid was too low.

Computers began to make this process easier, but you would still often have to print the plans or switch between multiple programs to do your count. Though it may be somewhat more accurate, you’d still spend just about as much time doing your takeoff. As digitization has provided new options, PrebuiltML was born and our PROtrade siding takeoff software was developed to cover a wide range of siding materials and supplies.
