Freefoam has launched a new colour to its popular Weatherboard style cladding range, in response to market demand and feedback from customers.

The new colour, Sage Green, is a natural, soft shade with grey undertones. Subtle yet stylish, it is ideal for any location, from rural countryside, coastal situations and urban city environments.

Marketing Manager Louise Sanderson talked about the high level of interest in Freefoam’s cladding range, which has featured in new build developments, home renovation for extensions and dormers, as well as caravans, lodges, home offices and summer houses.

“Colour is an important factor and we find that consumers are particularly attracted to more natural subtle shades. The new Sage Green gives our trade customers more choice and the opportunity to open up new markets,” she said.

The new colour comes in the 170mm wide Weatherboard embossed textured cladding board, along with a range of matching fitting trims to create a neat professional co-ordinated finish.

Freefoam offer a range of 11 colours, including contemporary shades of grey and blue, more traditional cream and brown and now green.

PVC-U cladding requires minimal maintenance once fitted, which is a huge benefit for property owners and an interesting feature for any property developer or public sector housing provider.

Its A+ rating from the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) ‘Green Guide To Specification’ when installed with standard components examples its significant environmental credentials, making this range a superb alternative to timber and fibre cement products.

Colin St John, Commercial Director, commented: “We’ve seen a surge of interest in our Fortex cladding range with sales doubling last year. Now is the right time to add a new colour to augment our existing range and to give our customers a valuable addition to their portfolio of products and a real opportunity to develop new business streams.”
