Imagine you’re in a new home today without having to pack a thing. It seems like a dream, doesn’t it? It’s actually a fun feature on the website of one of premier roofing partners, GAF. North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, who won an innovation award from Home Builder Executive last week, provides a terrific way to visualize changes to your current home. It’s a virtual home remodeler and you can find it at

When you get to the site, the first step is to click on Residential Roofing at the top of the screen.   Once you click on Residential Roofing, a menu opens up and reveals options to explore regarding the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, other roofing products, warranties and more. Under the Plan Your Roofing Project category, you’ll find the Virtual Home Remodeler. Be sure to visit these other areas too as you begin to get a better sense of what roofing options from GAF and Storm Solutions are right for you.   The Virtual Home Remodeler gives you design options to change, including a variety of home styles to choose from. You can view options ranging such as Colonial, Contemporary and Ranch. Better yet, upload a photo of your own home for a truly personal experience.

Choosing a roofing option is next step in the process. Whether you’re a fan of shingles or slate, there’s an abundance of styles and color patterns from which to choose. You can even ensure the product you like is available in your zip code.   As you continue to create the exterior look you desire, take a few minutes to check your options for brick and siding as well as trim colors. Perhaps Neptune Blue best suits your tastes for a trim color. Maybe you’ll discover a love for Rockwood Red instead.   Along the way, be sure to save the project so you can make modifications later. This is especially important if you’re not the only decision maker in the house and you’ll need to run your ideas by that certain someone else. You can also print your project at any time.
