CertainTeed Equips Homeowners with User Friendly Exterior Home Product Color Selection Tool

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed is making product selection a breeze with the new CurbAppeal™ app for the iPad®. The user-friendly app assists with review and selection of siding, decking, railing and fence products for a personalized look that combines complementary colors, styles and textures. A gallery of homes is also included for multiple design ideas and additional inspiration.

“The new CurbAppeal app takes the guesswork out of mixing and matching materials, styles and colors on your home to create a beautifully coordinated outdoor living space,” says Matt Gibson, director of channel marketing for the CertainTeed Siding Products Group. “It also brings product selection into the 21st century through the use of the iPad.”

CurbAppeal features a step-by-step, visual process that allows users to experiment with CertainTeed’s broad selection of materials, styles and colors.  It allows them to experiment and choose the perfect combination of products for their home. The wide variety of architectural styles showcased in the gallery is another helpful guide, with expertly designed outdoor living space examples. CurbAppeal joins web-based tools ColorCoach™ and ColorView™ to provide the user with confidence in their product selection.
