DaVinci Roofscapes makes it easier to visualize your dream roof color. 

These days, people don’t simply plunge into painting a room. They get samples and “try on” the colors they like with paint chips or by painting a portion of a wall. They make sure the color works for the room before committing to it. The same is true when investing in a new roof. You want to “see” what a roof color will look like before making a final decision.

Many roofing manufacturers understand that desire to audition a roofing color. At DaVinci® Roofscapes, they’ve created a free online Color Visualizer. It offers a fast way to see how different colors and products will look on your home. 

DaVinci Roofscapes makes it simple to “try” before you buy.

There’s two ways you can use the visualizer. You can either upload a picture of your own home or use one of the ten home styles supplied in the gallery. Try different options to show how roofing styles and colors look on your home or the outside of a similar house. You’ll be able to choose from different composite shake and slate products to gain different looks.

Personally, I think one of the best aspects is that you can try colors on your home. Take the time to see new roofing, body and trim colors on your house. You’ll get a complete picture of any updates you have in mind. And, you can do this without assistance, from the comfort of your home.

Once you’ve narrowed down the options, you can contact customer service at DaVinci and request samples of your favorite colors. Place those samples on your roof and alongside your home. Then you can then see how the colors look during different times of the day and night to get a true feeling for the color.

Immerse yourself

The DaVinci Color Visualizer is a great way to look at different colors of your potential new roof. However, if you’d like to truly immerse yourself in a totally new home exterior, there’s another online tool you’ll want to try … the Immersive Experience.

This 3D interactive online tool from Westlake Royal Building Products™ lets you explore different products, colors and texture options on three different home exteriors. You get to choose the roofing, siding, trim and outdoor elements on both the front and exterior elevations of the home!

An avatar gives you an overview introduction to each home. There’s a Custom Home, Mid-Range Home and a Multi-Home Builder design. You can select key hotspots to learn about product details and color options. 

Touring the houses

On the Custom Home exterior, the six schemes feature roofing from DaVinci® Roofscapes, TruExterior® Siding and Trim, Eldorado Stone® and Cultured Stone® sidewall treatments, Zuri® Premium Decking and Kindred® outdoor elements. The textures and colors amplify the designs and elevate the senses.

For the Mid-Range Home exterior, Unified Steel™ Stone Coated Roofing and Newpoint™ Concrete Roof Tile options are highlighted, plus Celect® Cellular Composite Siding and Trim and Cedar Renditions™ aluminum siding. Versetta Stone® sidewall treatments, Zuri decking, Kindred outdoor elements and Atlantic Premium Shutters® help transform the home with boundless designer options.

The Multi-Home Builder exterior features Newpoint™ Concrete Roof Tile, Foundry® and Royal® Estate™ siding, plus Versetta Stone sidewall treatment. Mid-America® shutters, Royal Trim and Kindred outdoor materials complete the home tour options.

Each Westlake brand has a broad color offering, making it easy to find palettes that harmonize across the products. Try out a favorite of mine when you’re looking at the Custom Home. That’s the DaVinci Province™ Slate in the European blend of colors. Match it up with the Eldorado Stone Ledge in Whitecap with the white, pale gray and black. It’s an elegant combination I think any homeowner would love. 

And, when touring the homes in the Immersive Experience, remember to get a full visual look at each roof. Just click the button for the complete aerial view.

When shopping for your new roof, these online visual tools can help give you colorful ideas and set the palette for your home exterior!
