Mobile App Makes It Possible To Design a Custom Outdoor Living Space with the Touch of a Finger
WINCHESTER, Va., May 4, 2016 – Forget about the hammer or screws – the best new tool for designing the outdoor living space of your dreams is already in your pocket! Trex Company’s popular Trex® Deck Designer Desktop Tool has gone mobile, and now is available for complimentary download from the Apple iTunes App Store.
With the swipe of a finger, the Trex® Deck Designer Mobile App allows users to design a customized outdoor space using the robust portfolio of high-performance Trex outdoor living products. Starting by choosing deck dimensions, users can browse all 18 colors of Trex’s three decking collections, mix and match railing options, and select lighting accessories for virtually limitless design options and possibilities.
Once users complete a look, the App automatically generates a list of components used in that design to make the purchase process easier. In addition, a finished photo may be saved to the iPad for future reference, or emailed to friends, family or potential contractors for idea sharing and feedback.
“Planning an outdoor living space from scratch can be both exciting and overwhelming,” said Adam Zambanini, vice president, marketing for Trex Company, the world’s leader in high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products. “The Trex Deck Designer Mobile App provides a user-friendly way to experiment with the many decking and accessory options available – whenever and wherever inspiration strikes.”
Beyond the Trex Deck Designer Mobile App, Trex offers a number of digital tools to plan an outdoor living space:
Share Your Project: Located under the “Inspiration” tab at the top of the Trex.com homepage, the Share Your Project feature invites Trex deck owners to upload up to five images of their outdoor living space, along with details about the Trex products they chose to use, including railing, lighting and the collection and color of Trex decking. The photos and information then become part of an online gallery of homeowner and professionally-built Trex projects, and are shared across Trex’s social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Houzz and Instagram, thus providing visitors in the beginning stages of the deck planning process inspiration from real-world examples.
Trex® Color Visualizer App: Exclusively for iPad, this app makes it easy to explore hundreds of color and finish combinations. Featuring photo-realistic representations of Trex outdoor living spaces, users may experiment virtually to find the color combination that best suits their outdoor living space. Designs can be saved for easy sharing, and emailed directly from the app.
Online Sample Program: Trex recently launched a new online sample fulfillment program that enables consumers to quickly and easily obtain and compare samples of Trex composite decking. Visitors to shop.trex.com now can order sample boards from all three high-performance Trex decking collections in every shade offered, with convenient at-home delivery, to help with their deck planning and decision- making.
Social Media: With more than 164,000 fans on Facebook, nearly 7,000 followers of Twitter, and a growing presence on Pinterest, Houzz and Instagram, Trex’s social media channels provide daily inspiration for helping plan a dream outdoor living oasis.
