About Square Takeoff

Square Takeoff is a cloud-based takeoff and estimating software which provides construction professionals with the tools to manage bids and complete construction estimates for any residential or commercial project. The platform gives users access to thousands of prebuilt material templates to use to estimate their next project, but also enables users to customize their templates to meet the specific needs of their project. As a cloud-based solution, Square Takeoff gives users the flexibility to manage bids and estimates anytime, anywhere, via any internet-enabled device.

Square Takeoff offers an all-in-one takeoff and estimating solution, allowing users to complete full project takeoffs and estimates on screen using digital blueprints or Google satellite images. Square Takeoff’s product features enable users to print and share plans, load all major image file types, and calculate complex roof and wall areas. Users simply point-and-click with their mouse, finger or stylus in order to calculate square footage, linear footage and/or item counts. Square Takeoff also enables users to navigate plans easily, maintain accuracy with the scale tool, and identify takeoffs using notes and colors.

Bid management technology allows users to keep track of their bid due dates and project start dates, while project collaboration tools enable users to share jobs to collaborate between construction phases. Since all projects are stored in the cloud, Square Takeoff ensures that all project and job information is secure and readily accessible. Other Square Takeoff features include custom material reporting, data export to Excel, custom material formulas, Google Maps integration, and more.

    Makes me and my team more accurate everyday by allow us to generate better estimates for the top builders in the construction industry.

    Pros

    As one of the largest lumber retail companies in the industry, we always work to stay up with new technology trends to ensure we provide our clients with the most accurate estimate for their construction projects. We were looking for a leader in the industry that could provide us with a stable software that would be able to meet our daily demands. The software and the Team at Square Takeoff have went above and beyond meeting every need and has helped us acheive the goals we have set forth as a company. Keep up the great work.

    Started using the product a few weeks ago after years of using a competitors product. Only reason for the switch was I upgraded to an iPad PRO for work and my other solution didn't work. I was skeptical at first about using a cloud takeoff solution and was worried that it would be slow. To my surprise it actually works faster than my desktop software. Overall it has a similar feel to my desktop product but worked on my MAC and iPad PRO. Customer service was great and helped me out with a few questions I had. Price was good and the sales rep even saved me more on my monthly subscription. Overall I give them two thumbs up.

    Pros

    Cloud based.
    Easy share feature.
    Easy to manage bids.
    Good price.
    Operates like a desktop solution.
    Note feature with attachments.

    Cons

    Missing some features of my desktop software. But spoke to them and they said development would work on them and have already launched one of those features.

    Response from Square Takeoff

    Thank you Mark. It has been great working with you and your company.

    Uploading plans is super easy. Then you just put in your scale and you are on the path to getting all dimensions. It really comes in handy when we are bidding multiple aspects of a build.

    Pros

    We like that we no longer have to do any manual calculations when bidding a job. We just put in the plant and point and click our way to accurate numbers.

    Cons

    The user interface could use some refinement. Finding exactly what you are looking for can take a bit too long if you are not a daily user.

    Response from Square Takeoff

    Thank Justin for your review. We are open to discuss any ideas you have that will make the program better for you and all of our other users.
