Owens Corning's updated Design EyeQ lets builders and homeowners preview various color options for roofing, siding and trim.

The company has recently updated its Design EyeQ SnapShot, its online app that lets homeowners try various color options before making a final decision on roofing. New additions include the 2017 color of the year, Sedona Canyon, and the app will soon have the 2018 color of the year.

To start, homeowners upload a photo of their house, or choose from a library of common house styles, then choose from a list of shingle colors. Users can specify a particular product line if they choose. The new version of the app has been updated for iOS users, has a better zoom function, and enhanced editing tools, according to Owens Corning.

The same program can be used to select siding, masonry and trim.

Once a homeowner chooses the roofing, the file can be sent to a contractor to get a quote.
