This year’s Ideal Home Show in London has two properties both featuring Freefoam Fortex cladding.
Pale Gold Double Shiplap cladding formed the exterior finish of a three apartment structure designed to reflect the three stages in life, first time buyer, new family home and downsizing.
The second show home, a 21st century cottage, featured Pale Blue Weatherboard cladding. The traditional cottage with a contemporary twist was designed to appeal to metropolitan families relocating to the countryside or as a second home.
The house featured a thatch roof and timber cladding with the lower level also clad with ultra hard-wearing, low maintenance Freefoam Fortex PVC cladding.
David Richards, Director David Richard Associates, commissions the homes each year and wanted to showcase the flexibility of modern PVC building materials and to show how they can be used on both contemporary and traditional developments.
Freefoam Marketing Manager, Louise Sanderson comments: “Cladding is rapidly becoming a very popular home improvement product and our range is meeting the demands and aspirations of homeowners and house builders alike.”
The cladding is available in eight subtle colours, developed specifically for both renovation and new build projects.
