Virtual Remodeler Tool Makes it Easy to Customize Home Exteriors
Novi, MI | February 19, 2019
Boral Building Products offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive lineups of exterior products, including engineered composite siding, stone siding, trim, and shutters, ideal for creating nearly any desired style and look. Now the company is making it easier than ever for homeowners to achieve the design of their dreams with the launch of the “Virtual Remodeler,” an online visualization tool that showcases how the home exterior will look with different profiles, textures, and colors.
To use the tool, homeowners or contractors can upload a photo of an existing home or select a similar house from an online gallery. Using the program’s product interface, the user then selects from Boral’s siding, trim, and shutter lines, including Versetta Stone®, Kleer® Lumber, TruExterior® Siding & Trim, and Mid-America Siding Components®; the image updates in real time, revealing how the exterior will appear with each product and color selection. To further ease the process, the tool includes Color Harmony coordinating color families, each of which can be further changed and updated to suit the homeowner’s tastes and needs.
“Designing a home with fantastic curb appeal requires navigating an endless array of options, from the shape of the siding to the color of the trim to the size of the shutters. Boral’s new Virtual Remodeler tool eases the process for homeowners—and their remodelers—by helping them visualize how products will look on their house, much more than a small sample ever could,” says Becky Duffy, Director of Marketing for Boral Building Products. “Remodelers can ensure customers are happy with their home exterior before products are ordered and installed, leading to fewer surprises and greater satisfaction when the project is complete.”
Virtual Remodeler offers several unique features to further ease the design process, including the ability to save multiple projects to work on later and compare. For a small fee, users can have their image professionally mapped by Boral, which will increase the accuracy of the rendering’s appearance. And once a finished look is chosen, Virtual Remodeler will generate a product list for easy ordering through Boral dealers and distributors.
