New CertainTeed Fence-It Tool Lets Homeowners Visualize Their Ideal Outdoor Living Space

Homeowners can now try out different fence styles and colors before the first post is ever bought or placed, thanks to a new online home exterior visualization tool from CertainTeed, a leading North American manufacturer of exterior and interior building products. The tool, called Fence-It™, creates a stunningly realistic rendering of how various CertainTeed Fence Collection products will look in a yard before homeowners spend a cent out of their budget. 

“While fences are a great option for framing up an outdoor living space, many homeowners don’t usually view them as decorative,” said Doug Mucher, senior marketing manager for CertainTeed Outdoor Living. “CertainTeed’s Fence-It visualization tool allows homeowners to play around with their choices in a fun and interactive way before deciding which color and style may be right for their yard. It also lets them share their ideas visually with their contractor to ensure the final design turns out exactly how they had hoped.”

Using the digital desktop tool, homeowners can try out various fence styles over a stock home photo to visualize which products will best fit their overall outdoor design. Using the pre-loaded gallery, users can choose between a front yard or backyard setting before picking a fence category (private, semi-private , contemporary, classic, traditional or post and rail), style, height and color. The tool also indicates which products are swimming pool-compliant and have WindZone™ Performance or ColorLast® Fade Protection for easy decision-making based on area needs.

Once the rendering is finished, it can be saved as a .jpeg file and printed or shared via email or text with a contractor.

Fence-It joins CertainTeed’s extensive arsenal of home exterior visualization tools, including ColorView® exterior style and color selector, ColorCoach(TM) virtual color swatch book, iDreambook(TM)interactive catalog, Trim-It(TM) digital trim visualizer, CurbAppeal® product selector, EverView(TM) railing visualizer, Blend-It(TM) blended color selector and more. While Fence-It provides an accurate portrayal of product use, CertainTeed recommends homeowners reference physical product samples for texture and color before making a final decision.
