Local Stores Offer Do It Yourself App's

Updated:

In this day and age, the saying "there's an app for that" is common lingo. Smartphone app's seem to offer help in all areas of life, even when it comes to redesigning your living space. With just a quick swipe of your finger on your smartphone, iPad or tablet, your home could have a new look....And you don't even have to step foot in a store.

"In our photo gallery, users can go in there and click a region to see which colors of shingles are available in their specific area." says Michelle Martin, with Tamko Products in Joplin.


As spring progresses, redecorating is a common topic on the mind of homeowners. With all the options, from new shingles to updated windows...it can be hectic...but now with interactive app's, it's becoming a little easier.

"Our app you can do a lot of different things with it. Say you want to put in an exterior door, you want to change your exterior door, with our app you can just type in exterior doors, and then it will take and pull up exterior door options, and then you can just scroll through and select different ones." says Ty Levins, Store Manager of The Home Depot in Joplin.

Corporate stores like Home Depot and local stores like Tamko Products both have unique app's that bring the store right to you.

"It is more user friendly now. And it also has more product information, several product shots, you can click and zoom in on the product, and really see what makes Tamko different and what would make you want to purchase our product." says Martin.

"We actually have something called augmented reality. So if you just touch on that, what it does it activates your camera on your phone. You can go outside or even inside and put this up to where you're looking at it like its on your door." Levins explains.

But with upgraded technology, does it take away from the experts in the store? Martin and Levins say...no way.

"Everyone seems to be going more electronically, so we have more people going to tamko.com, and now everyone's going mobile, so they are on their phones with their app's and now the IPads, so expanding it really allows all Tamko customers to see the beauty of Tamko products." Martin says.

"In this day in age people are really starting to do more things themselves, rather than hire them out as well, so that takes and helps with it too." Levins says.

Both the Home Depot app and Tamko products app are available for free on your smartphones or tablets.
