Is there an easy way to get a take off for all the different siding types?


Working on this multifamily unit and it has about 6 different types of siding.


The standard complete report gives me the total siding area

You'll need to create siding formulas for each type of siding int eh wall assembly (siding A, B,C,D,E).  For the 6th siding type you can use Stucco (If not used elsewhere).  Create each custom wall with the corresponding siding type and then your formulas will work.


I currently have A as vinyl, B Vinyl Shakes, C is 4x8 LP SmartSide for B&B look, D 8" LP SmartSide, E is ShartSide Shakes.   I find this combination setup in my System options easy to manipulate on a job by job basis.  For example, converting from LP to Hardi is a simple as changing the coverage and description.


Make sure your formulas match whether or not you are using a profile in the wall assembly.
