High-Tech Tools Preview Roof Repairs

The home improvement industry has embraced the digital age; online virtual-reality tools allow homeowners to easily preview, plan, and choose options for all types of remodeling. The development of these virtual-reality products can help prevent homeowners from making costly mistakes that must be repaired later.

Virtual reality is especially useful when it comes to choosing a roof, which is critical to the curb appeal, comfort, and resale value of a home. GAF’s Virtual Home Remodeler allows users to experiment with a variety of different looks, ranging from French country to Victorian to ranch.

“It’s an easy way to see what would look best with your home,” according to Paul Dellanno, assistant marketing manager at GAF. “Because what may work for a ranch-style house may not work for a Tudor or colonial. We’ve even designed it so that you can see how things look at different times of day and in different seasons.”

Take shingles, for example, something most homeowners don’t get to appreciate until they like (or dislike) them once they are placed. But 3D programs allow for comparison of different styles and colors on-screen. In addition, virtual-reality home-improvement tools such as those offered by GAF include features for sharing your potential design plans via social media. Just as if you brought a friend along to the hardware store, you can point, click, and get feedback on whether your roof upgrade or kitchen renovation is underwhelming, overboard, or just right.

Visit gaf.com for more details about using online tools to plan home renovation projects. That way — like having a friend along while trying on clothes at a brick-and-mortar store — you can get a second opinion on whether your choice is becoming or not.
