Universal Roofing and Exteriors, the leading expert in roofing in Indianapolis, IN, is a GAF Master Elite™ contractor. This means that we can install GAF’s entire product line. GAF offers a wide range of shingle types in many different designs and colors. Since it can be difficult to choose the perfect roof, GAF developed their Virtual Home Remodeler. This website feature will help you preview your new roof’s appearance.
Here’s how it works:
Choose a Home Picture
The first thing you need to do when you open the program is click the “Customize a Home” button in the lower left corner of the screen. This will take you to a section where you can choose from different home styles. Simply choose the one that matches your home. You can also upload a picture of your home instead for maximum accuracy. You need to create an account and take a clear picture of your home. Make sure to use the best quality picture you can and that there is enough lighting.
Customize the Roof
After choosing a home style or uploading a photo, you need to choose your shingle style next. The Virtual Home Remodeler has all of GAF’s shingle and color options. For example, when you select their Glenwood® shingles, you can choose from six different colors including Autumn Harvest, Weathered Wood, and Chelsea Gray. The roof on the photo changes each time you choose a shingle type. As an expert in roof installation and roof repair in Fishers, IN, we recommend choosing different shingles and colors so you can see the different possibilities for your home.
Customize the Siding and Trim
The Virtual Home Remodeler is not limited to just roofing, however. You can also customize the trim color and the siding of the photograph. This will allow you to see which color schemes work well with your chosen shingles. GAF also provides short recommendations and summaries with every roof color that you select. This will help you design an appealing color scheme. For instance, the Autumn Harvest color for Glenwood shingles looks great with soft pastels.
