Fall In Love With Your Home All Over Again
February 20, 2016 | Filed under: Newsletter Articles,Uncategorized
Ah yes! February — the month of love! We say that we love all kinds of things … our relatives, our friends, our pets, hopefully our jobs, and also our homes. But, as with anything, occasionally that love needs “freshened up” a bit. Our Visualizer tool may be just the way for you to freshen up your love for your home!
Our free online Visualizer allows you to upload a photo of your home and then “install” any colors or profiles of our metal roofs onto your home. Have you ever wondered what your home would look like with a green roof or a red roof? A slate look roof? A standing seam roof? Now, using the Visualizer, you can easily see all of those options and many more! And – spoiler alert – that “fresh look” may just cause you to fall in love with your home all over again!
In addition to using a photo of your own home, you can also use our gallery of pre-loaded homes and look at them with different roof colors and styles. And, if you run into questions while using the Visualizer, we have produced a full set of tutorial videos to guide you through the process to a perfect image!
We have found that the Visualizer tool helps homeowners in their purchasing decision for a new roof. One thing we always tell potential customers is, that no matter what you think about the benefits of a particular roof system, you must “love” the look of it before choosing it for your home. No one ever wants to come home to a house that they just don’t like the looks of, do they?
Tips for Photographing the Home You Love
When choosing a photo of your home to “Visualize,” choosing an appropriate photo is important. Choose a photo that shows as much of your roof as possible. Taking the photo from an elevated position looking down onto your roof and home can be helpful. Additionally, taking the photo looking “squarely” into the side of your home being photographed is very helpful. This will facilitate the Visualizer process and make it easier to get great results that you love!
Another thing that might help you “love” a roof is what the company that produces it stands for. Studies show that increasingly, consumers choose products because the company that produces or sells those products does the “right thing.” Companies such as Tom’s Shoes and Warby Parker have made kindness and charity core parts of their missions, and that makes their customers feel good and appreciate them all the more.
Putting Our Money Where Our Heart Is
At Classic Metal Roofing Systems, we have our own take on being a company you might love; it starts with our unique Core Values that guide our actions. We often hear from homeowners that it was our Core Values that attracted them first to our company. We love hearing that. One of our Core Values that we feel most impacts the world is our commitment to Economic Development. We hold very dear our responsibility to be a root of economic development throughout the world.
As one of what seems to be a declining number of privately held US-based manufacturing companies, we do not take lightly the economic impact we have wherever our products go. While we have about 50 team members in Ohio, the number of individuals and families we touch quickly balloons into the thousands when you consider the companies and individuals that work hard to supply our metals, our coatings, our packaging, and a huge variety of other things that go into producing the world’s most beautiful metal roofs. Keeping with our commitment to producing US-made products from US-made raw materials, these suppliers reside in many states.
And, after that, we think of the thousands of people who sell and install our products in the United States, Canada, Japan, and other countries. We take very seriously the number of people who depend upon us for their livelihoods – to “pay the rent” and put food on their tables. That means a lot to us and, as a Core Value, it means we’re going to do all we can to support more and more involvement with our products across the globe. The dollars and earnings that are generated by our products, for us, help to carry God’s light, love, and hope into the world. We want to be a big part of that!
