JOPLIN, MO. – November 17, 2014 – TAMKO is proud to announce the reveal of a newly updated StyleSelect™ Color and Style Selector. The update encourages builders and owners of homes to review various different colors and styles on mock up houses before committing to a decision. “The new updates make it easier for customers to find the perfect shingle style and color,” Neil Robinson, TAMKO creative director of marketing stated. “Using the tool will give them a better idea of how each color and style of shingle will appear on their own home.”
In the past, users were only able to view a gallery of unchangeable sample homes. This allowed them to preview TAMKO shingles on a home that was similar to their own, but failed to allow for more dynamic options. Now it is possible for users to upload an image of the building they wish to work on, and from there apply any of TAMKO’s entire line of residential shingles including: laminated asphalt, 3-tab strip and metal shingles. Having the ability to see the exact effects of what a specific building will look like grants customers the ability to make informed decision on which shingles best suit the look and feel of their home. The procedure can even be done on smart phones and tablets, allowing designers to work stationary or while on the road.
The process is simple: users begin by uploading a picture of their home and choose a simple marker – such as a door – to help determine scale. The user may then begin drawing a mask by outlining their roof, which sets a perspective. This short process is repeated for each roof that needs to be worked on. A tutorial is also available to help users along the way.
If you don’t have the time to create the mask yourself, a team of professionals can be hired to accomplish the task for $15. Most tasks will be done within one business day. For convenience, users may also create an account to check on their work whenever they see fit. Projects can be shared with others via email or social media sites such as Twitter and Pinterest. The StyleSelect Color and Style Selector is available online at www.TAMKO.com or on the TAMKO ShingleStyles app for iPad®.
