With building companies looking for ways to expand their business, PVC cladding could offer the opportunity to revisit previous customers and develop new markets.
Thanks to shows like Grand Designs featuring new build projects with cladding, there has been a huge interest in external cladding products in recent years.
Cladding is a low maintenance alternative to timber that is becoming increasingly popular with busy homeowners. PVC-U external cladding is one of the fastest growing external building products.
It is extremely versatile as it can be used on a huge range of projects from a feature wall on an existing building, to giving an attractive finish to a loft conversion.
Producing a wide range of long lasting, low maintenance cladding products, Freefoam Building Products are specialist PVC manufacturers.
Featuring a choice of a smooth woodgrain finish or Fortex timber effect embossed boards in Shiplap, Double Shiplap and Weatherboard styles, the Freefoam cladding is available in a wide variety of colours, for example Rosewood, Mahogany, Slate Grey and more.
Furthermore, all ranges come with a high-quality,purpose made, easy to fit trim system allowing quick and easy installation.
PVC-U cladding is a real alternative to timber and fibre cement products, as it has been awarded an A+ rating from the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) ‘Green Guide to Specification’ when installed with standard components.
As manufacturers, Freefoam is committed to bringing products to market that give its customers and its customer’s customers opportunities to grow, explains Commercial Director Colin St John.
