MAUMEE, OHIO – 2015 marks the fifth year that architects, specifiers and building industry professionals can gain free elevation takeoff services from Fypon, the industry leader in synthetic millwork products.
"We take elevations and, using a specialized construction software, provide digitized takeoffs that make it easy to add synthetic millwork pieces to the interior and exterior of projects," says JJ Rogers, sales operations manager for Fypon. "During the past four years we've done nearly 2,000 of these free takeoffs. Generally we can get the product recommendations for the takeoffs done within 72 hours, so it's a fast turn time."
In recent years Fypon has reviewed takeoffs for hundreds of homes plus a variety of commercial projects. The takeoff service has also been used for a multi-residential/commercial development project in Alexandria, Virginia.
In-house experts at Fypon review submitted project plans and make recommendations for cost-effective polyurethane products that are architecturally accurate for the specific project. In some cases this occurs in areas where trim pieces have already been designed into the plans. In other cases the company makes recommendations on where Fypon® pieces could be used to enhance the overall design plans.
"This service saves time for the architect and builder," says Rogers. "By taking the blueprints or elevations and making product recommendations we help speed up the entire design process. Whether it's adding a certain style of millwork to a project or following the exact instructions of an architect to review an elevation for the addition of specific products, we can help make life easier for designers and building industry professionals with this service."
Fypon offers more than 2,600 synthetic pieces in the categories of Window & Door Trim, Mouldings, E-Vent™ Systems, Decorative Millwork, Louvers & Gable Vents, Balustrade Systems, and Porch Posts, Columns & Wraps.
Fypon manufactures thousands of decorative millwork elements in a variety of architectural styles to enhance the interior and exterior of homes. Each piece is crafted from tough, weather-resistant, high-performance materials that are resistant to decay, insect infestation and water damage for long-lasting beauty and low maintenance.
