Alside Enhances Functionality of Window Design Showcase

New exterior view allows homeowners to view exterior window, siding, trim and shutter color combinations

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio – Alside, a leading manufacturer of vinyl windows and siding, has introduced new features to its Window Design Showcase, an interactive, on-line tool that enables homeowners to act as a virtual designer for their remodeling and new construction projects.

The Window Design Showcase is a visualization tool giving users the ability to discover a range of window and patio door design possibilities, including model configurations, color and grid options as well as cut glass styles.

“We understand that homeowners are constantly searching for different interior design options,” said Dana Schindler, director of window marketing for Associated Materials, Inc., Alside’s parent company. “The beauty of the Design Showcase is that it gives users, including homeowners, remodelers, builders and architects, the ability to customize a home's colors from the inside as well as outside.”  

Along with an interior room view, the interactive tool provides new features to offer an exterior view of the home. This allows the viewer to visualize how the high-performance FrameWorks™ exterior window finishes will work with siding, trim and shutter colors. Whether evaluating to a current or planned siding color, they can explore a variety of window finishes. When completed, users can print their unique designs to use as inspiration for their project.

“The Alside Design Showcase is a valuable tool not only for homeowners, but also for remodelers and builders to use as they’re evaluating window, siding, and trim color schemes for remodeling or new construction plans,” Schindler added.
