IKO®, a North American manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products, has announced the release of an updated and upgraded version of its ROOFViewer™ tool. ROOFViewer is an intuitive software that utilizes artificial intelligence technology to show users a vividly realistic rendering of how any given house would look complemented with the IKO roof of their choice. The robust software enables users to upload an image of their home or to choose from dozens of stock house photos available on the ROOFViewer site. ROOFViewer includes 18 color options throughout seven different IKO shingle styles. The featured shingle styles include dynasty and Nordic from the popular performance line, and the suite of IKO designer shingles, which mimic the look of natural slate tiles or cedar shakes.
ROOFViewer, which first launched in 2003, has earned its reputation as a vital tool for both homeowners and roofing contractors during the shingle style-and-color decision-making process. The ROOFViewer user experience has been redesigned for homebuyers in the 2020s.
ROOFViewer can be found on IKO’s North American residential website and is easily accessible via a standard web browser on a desktop computer or smartphone. The featured homes offer a wide variety of styles that include colonial, ranch, Victorian, and more. Once a house is selected, home-exterior details, such as colors for window and door trim, can be selected to reflect the user’s home or personal preference.
