Advantages of Professional Drafting Services
Why You Should "Go PRO"
You may ask yourself, “Why should I pay to have my plans professionally prepared when I can do it myself or have my contractor be responsible for it?”
There are many advantages to having your new home project prepared by ProCAD Drafting Services. Below are just a few reasons other than the fact that your project is guaranteed to come out the way you expect!
- Reduction of extra costs during construction: Today nobody can afford additional costs to a project regardless of size. With ProCAD’s professionally prepared drawings, you will reduce the probability of change orders and delays during construction because we design and draft our projects to be very clear and concise. With hand sketched drawings, the chances of dimensions being incorrect is high. Many times our fee alone will be paid for by the avoided additional charges that you may otherwise encounter.
- Accurate Bids from Contractors: Believe it or not, contractors appreciate a good set of plans to work from. They don’t have to guess what the owner’s want based upon verbal discussions. By having clear and concise plans, you can obtain bids from multiple contractors, and be assured that they are bidding on the same work. Without these plans, you may, OR MAY NOT, be getting what you pay for. This is critical in the unfortunate instance that a contractor does not meet his or her obligations and you have to take them to court for damages, or failure to complete the work.
- Cooperation from Town Officials: ProCAD is very experienced in the complete building process from design all the way through construction. This experience combined with our knowledge of the state building codes ensures that your project will go smoothly through the zoning and planning and building permit processes. We ensure that your project complies with local zoning requirements (i.e. setbacks, lot coverage, living areas, heights, etc.) and the state building code. We also speak with the local officials prior to the start of your project so that they expect to receive documents for your project in the near future.
- Reduction of Stress During the Construction Process: Without having plans professionally prepared, your likelihood of having stress during your project is increased as a result of extra costs, delays, disagreements with contractors, etc. By having ProCAD on your project team, we will ensure that your project runs smoothly. By nature, construction can be stressful for home owners as they don’t typically deal with construction on a daily basis. You can be assured that with ProCAD your project will run smoothly. We work for YOU, nobody else. This ultimately leads to an enjoyable experience for you!
