Designers, architects and homeowners can create a picture perfect home or building using Glen-Gery’s newly enhanced Virtual Design Tool, fully loaded with Glen-Gery products and colors.
Major technology upgrades to the tool allow a user to “See it before you live it,” choosing a home style that best matches their vision then applying product to fully visualize the outcome. The design process starts with going directly to the Glen-Gery website or by scanning a QR Code located on a sample chip in a Brickworks Design Studios. No QR code on your sample? No problem, simply use the search to find product name.
To help visualize brick or stone styles on a building, the website offers three options:
- PICTURE PERFECT
Use one of our pre-loaded commercial or residential images.
- PICTURE PERFECT DIY
Upload and prepare a custom image with auto-mask
- PICTURE PERFECT PRO
Have us professionally mask a custom image for a small fee.
According to Denise Smith, Marketing Manager, the tool is used mostly for residential design as architects have their own rendering software to realize commercial building design.
“With over 600 Glen-Gery products to choose from, the selection process has been overwhelming in the past,” she said. “The enhanced user interface and updated tool makes it much easier to select a product and apply it to all a home.”
Typically, homeowners will select one of our pre-loaded images or upload or their own image. That could include a sketch, front elevation, or a photo of their own home, or a neighboring home.
With the new enhancements, users can go from the Glen-Gery website directly into Picture Perfect with a product pre-selected so all that is needed is to select a home style. The visualizer also links back out to the Glen-Gery, making the two sites fully integrated and allows a user to view product details while applying the product to a home.
Other enhancements to the tool include viewing projects full screen, adding paint to wall sections, access to trending color palettes and a larger variety of stock images. Users have the ability to change roof, window, door, trim and mortar colors to completely design the
Should a couple want to visualize different products on their home, a comparison slider allows them to compare and print two designs simultaneously.
