The old saying "a drawing is worth a thousand words" rings especially true on a building project. A drawing helps a homeowner envision the finished product far better than any written specifications or verbal description can.

They allow customers to mull over a proposed project and make any changes before the work begins. Thus, they help avoid the bane of the contractor's existence, the change order.
