New Fence Tool Helps Homeowners Use Structure to Shape Their Yard

0

Homeowners can now try out different fence styles and colors before the first post is ever bought or placed, thanks to CertainTeed’s new online home exterior visualization tool, Fence-It.

Fence-It creates a stunningly realistic rendering of how various CertainTeed Fence Collection products will look in a yard before homeowners ever have to spend a cent out of their budget.

Select Type, Material, Color and Texture

Is your client “on the fence” about whether they prefer a hand-picked natural stone look, such as the one created by CertainTeed’s SimTek® EcoStone® solution, versus the realistic wood grain look of Bufftech® Brookline with CertaGrain® texture? No problem! With an interactive interface that offers eight different fence categories – such as privacy, semi-private, post and rail and more – and customization features such as fence height, color and texture, Fence-It makes it easy to visualize CertainTeed’s plethora of options before settling on a comfortable final decision.

Personalize to Location

The tool also indicates which products are swimming pool-compliant and have WindZone™ Performance or ColorLast® Fade Protection, helping homeowners decide which solutions will best frame their outdoor area.

Contractors can walk homeowners through the interface by first choosing whether they want to visualize a fence in the front or backyard of a home. After color, height and texture selections have been made, the rendering can be saved as a .jpg file and shared via email or text between the contractor and homeowner.

Close with Curb Appeal

While fences are a great option for framing up an outdoor living space, many homeowners don’t view them as decorative. CertainTeed’s Fence-It visualization tool will allow contractors to show homeowners the added value that fences can bring to a front or backyard – without having to convince them to spend any of their budget upfront.

Fence-It joins CertainTeed’s extensive arsenal of home exterior visualization tools, including ColorView® exterior style and color selector, ColorCoachTM virtual color swatch book, iDreambookTM interactive catalog, Trim-ItTM digital trim visualizer, CurbAppeal® product selector, EverViewTM railing visualizer, Blend-ItTM blended color selector and more.

While these tools provide an accurate portrayal of product use, CertainTeed recommends homeowners reference physical product samples for texture and color before making a final decision.
