Considering a roofing restoration? Not sure what type of shingle to use? Or even what color you may want? Owens Corning Roofing may just have the tool for you.
This innovative shingle manufacturer, just introduced what they are calling, The Roofing Color Compass Personality Quiz.
While personality quizzes are not necessarily new, and have been used in a wide variety of contexts, they are, depending on the version of the personality test, typically quite accurate.
As most personality tests are based on Carl Jung’s original work on archetypes, and then adapted to create the 16 personality types identified in the Myers-Briggs personality inventory, the industry standardization has helped increase validity. Even the DISC personality profile is based on the Myers-Briggs test.
Owens Corning, however, utilized famed color expert Leatrice Eiseman to help develop the test and design specific colors to match personality question responses. Once the personality test has helped to identify a specific color-personality match, this color can then be found on Owens Corning Color Comparison chart, which features all of the color offerings the shingle company manufactures shown side-by side for comparison.
Perhaps the best part of the entire Owens corning color experience, however, is what Owens Corning calls the Design EyeQ. This unique website property allows you to view your shingle color selection on a home. Using the Design EyeQ then allows you to get a sense of what your color-personality match will look like in real life — and perhaps on your own home.
While the Color Compass Personality Quiz and Design EyeQ can help you differentiate from the many color options available, and eventually make your shingle selection, Owens Corning suggests that you view the shingle selection in a sample version, or actually installed on a home, before making your final selection as, they note, “due to manufacturing variances, the limitations of your monitor resolution and the variation in natural exterior lighting, actual shingle colors and granule blends may vary from the images you see.”
