Kavtek Releases Innovative Augmented Reality Home Design App for Monaghan Lumber

We’re excited to announce that we’ve released an innovative new augmented reality (AR) app for Monaghan Lumber. Introducing Kavtek’s technology has made Monaghan Lumber, an award-winning supplier of speciality wood products, one of the first building material suppliers in Canada to embrace AR with their own app for consumers.

“From day one working with Sanu & the Kavtek Team has been an excellent experience,” says Warren Rose Director of Sales and Public Relations at Monaghan Lumber. “We recognized the potential to help consumers by pairing Kavtek’s speciality, Augmented Reality, with our speciality, Flooring. The immediate impact on our service and customer experience has been tremendous, we look forward to using the new technology while we work closely with Designers, Builders, Renovators, and DIY’ers.”


The Monaghan Lumber app uses augmented reality to overlay their products on top of existing floors, giving users the impression that new flooring has been installed. Using the app, consumers can examine the intricacies that make Monaghan Lumber’s flooring products special and unique without ever having to leave the comfort of their own homes.

“Monaghan Lumber was one of our very first customers, they believed in our vision and we are very excited to introduce augmented reality to their consumer base,” says Sanu Somaweera, Co-Founder of Kavtek. “AR is an amazing way for companies like Monaghan Lumber to connect with millennials and Gen Z. The app caters to this “uberized” generation that needs instant gratification by empowering them to design any space with new products – effortlessly.”

The Augmented Reality Software Market for the consumer sector is projected to reach over $13 Billion by 2022, and Kavtek has positioned themselves to bring the incredible opportunities of the booming augmented reality sector to local businesses like Monaghan Lumber.

The app, Monaghan Lumber, is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play. 

Kavtek has experience helping small to medium businesses integrate AR into their customer experience strategy.
