DaVinci Roofscapes, a polymer roofing manufacturer, has launched a home exterior color contest. Open to all homeowners nationwide, the “Shake it Up” Exterior Color Contest includes a $5,000 cash grand prize to help the winner add color to the exterior of his or her home.
To enter the contest, homeowners should visit the DaVinci Facebook page and “Like” the page. Then, a person can enter by submitting a digital photo of his or her home’s exterior along with up to a 250-word description stating how he or she wishes to “shake up” the exterior of the home with colorful products.
National color expert Kate Smith will help judge the contest to determine five finalists. She will then work with a professional artist to create renderings and product wish lists of how the five finalists can transform their home’s exteriors by adding color and colorful products by the contest sponsor and partners. The original photo submission and the artist’s renderings for the five finalists will be posted on the contest site for two weeks of online public voting. The finalist with the most votes will receive the $5,000 grand prize.
“This fun contest will show people how easy it can be to add ‘top down’ color to a home’s exterior,” says Smith, president and chief color maven of Sensational Color. “We’re going to help people turn ordinary home exteriors into extraordinary, color-coordinated showstoppers!”
The contest sponsor, DaVinci Roofscapes, offers polymer slate and shake roofing tiles in 49 standard colors with the option to custom create any color a homeowner desires. Each of the product partners for the contest, including Therma-Tru, Fypon and Simonton Windows, offers colorful product options for homeowners to enhance their home’s exterior.
The “Shake it Up” Exterior Color Contest is open for online entries now until April 21, 2013. After the selection of the five finalists, public online voting will take place from May 13 – 26, 2013. The grand prize winner will be announced on June 3, 2013. Visit the Facebook page for more information, along with the entry form, and complete rules and regulations regarding the contest.
