Preview Your New Roof with the GAF Virtual Home Remodeler

By Stacy Mellete

Choosing the right shingle for your home’s style can be difficult because of all the factors involved. That’s GAF developed the Virtual Home Remodeler. This website feature will help you visualize the effect your new shingles will have on your home’s appearance.

Affordable Roofing Systems explains its features.

Customizable Home Styles
As the expert in residential roofing in Tampa FL, we recommend using the remodeler because it allows you to see how beautiful your home will look with a new roof. It does this by providing an example photo of certain architectural styles.

Simply select your preferred home style and shingle type, and the remodeler will show a picture of the result. You can choose from Colonial, Victorian, Mediterranean Tuscan, Tudor, Shingle, Ranch, Mountain, Modern Contemporary, French Country, and Craftsman style homes.

For increased accuracy, you can even upload a photo of your home. You simply need to create an account at GAF’s website and take a clear picture. Creating an account also allows you to save multiple virtual home remodeler projects.

As the trusted name in residential and expert roofing company Tampa FL, we recommend this because it gives you multiple choices for your roof replacement. Just print out the pictures and it will give us a clear idea of what you want for your project.

Customizable Shingle Types and Colors
You need to choose your shingle style next. The Virtual Home Remodeler features GAF’s entire range of shingles and their color options. For instance, when you select Camelot® shingles, you can choose from eight possible colors. Simply click on the shingle type and color you want and the picture will change accordingly. We are the certified expert in roof installation and residential roof repairs in  Tampa FL. This means that regardless of the options you select for your roof, we can install and provide it for you.

Customizable Trim and Siding
The Virtual Home Remodeler is not just limited to shingles. You can also choose the trim color and brick/siding color for the picture. This allows you to see which color combinations work well with one another. GAF can assist you through short summaries and recommendations with every shingle color your select. For example, the Aged Oak color for Camelot shingles supports warm colors, while the San Gabriel color looks good with tan, brown, and beige shades.
