Freefoam helps stockists and installers grow

  • 8 Sep 2022

Yorkshire-based stockists Building Plastics Direct says Freefoam has helped them and their installer customers grow.

With two branches in Barnsley and Castleford and a thriving online business, Building Plastics Direct supplies fascias, soffits, cladding, guttering and other PVC products to customers across Yorkshire and beyond. For husband-and-wife team, Scott and Nikki Whitelam (pictured above), Freefoam is a brand they trust. 

Scott says: “We started off just stocking Freefoam’s fascias, soffits and guttering. We have since added different ranges, and we now stock Geo-panel and Fortex cladding in five different colours. As we’ve expanded the range, we’ve increased our range of customers as well. 

“A lot of customers will buy off us just for Freefoam. We have quite a few registered installers that work with us and insist on Freefoam products. It’s been nice we’ve been able to support them. If we try and do the best for our customers, they’re always going to come us.

“Freefoam want us to grow, and we see a positive future. We’ve been with Freefoam for a number of years now and I can’t see that changing anytime soon.”

Nikki adds: “In the building trade, Freefoam is just one of those logos you know you can trust.”

Building Plastics Direct has been supplying Freefoam products to Barnsley-based Freefoam Registered Installer, C&S Fascias, for years. 

C&S Fascias is run by Steve Jubb and his business partner, Steve Bray

Steve Bray says: “Freefoam offers a massive range of products and colours. We get loads of support and if we’ve got any technical queries, they’re always there for us. 

“They support us with guarantees that gets us a hell of a lot of work. The products are great to work with. Even the joints and corner trims make a big difference and look good. We don’t get that with any other manufacturer.”


Colin St John, Commercial Director at Freefoam, says: “We support all of our customers, and building strong and lasting relationships with them is so important to us. We want to help our customers grow and flourish with Freefoam’s support. It’s great to see Building Plastics Direct and C&S Fascias doing just that.”
