ClAppBack Episode 1: Visualizer Apps

There are so many apps out there that builders, remodelers, and contractors can use on a jobsite. One type is visualizer tools, which use augmented reality to show what a product will look like in a space before it's installed.

In Episode 1 of ClAppBack, Associate Editors Kate Carsella and Amanda Hermans walk you through 3 visualizer tools that could help you in your next project. These apps help you see paint, countertops, and landscaping items before you decide to buy them.
