New Freefoam Case Studies: Real Homes and Real Stories

  • 9 Feb 2022

Home transformations and improvements have been a major outcome of the events of the last two years. Homes have become places of work and leisure. People want to make their homes more spacious, convenient, comfortable, low maintenance and attractive. Many have used funds normally spent on travel and holidays on home improvements. To illustrate this trend, Freefoam Building Products have developed two new cases studies.

These feature cladding and fascia products, highlighting how a large number of homeowners nationwide are using low maintenance, cost effective PVC to update and re configure their homes. This is to ensure they are fit for purpose now and in the future.

Number 1

The first case study features Freefoam Fortex weatherboard cladding in subtle Misty Grey fitted on two refurbished and extended dormers. 

With teenage children the homeowner needed more space so decided to extend the dormers to create larger, more adaptable bedrooms.

He explains: “We looked at replacing with tiles, and also thought about render, but then found information about cladding. Cost was a factor and we liked the Freefoam cladding as it was suitable for our budget.”

Number 2

The second case study shows Freefoam PVC fascia, soffit and gutter fitted on a property in Yorkshire. Installation was by a local Freefoam Registered Installer. 

The homeowners, both recently retired, bought their home from new over 20 years ago. Built with PVC windows, but featuring wood fascia and soffit, the roofline had over time degraded, and needed regular maintenance. Part of their retirement plans were to update and modernise the house, and to make sure the maintenance was kept to a minimum to allow more time for travel. 

The homeowner explains: “We liked the Freefoam products. We chose white and were pleased to find out that it came with a 50 year guarantee and felt reassured that there would be no more tricky and costly maintenance.

“One of the other benefits for us was that the Freefoam installer organised the whole job. They arranged the scaffolding contractor so we only had to deal with one company. 

“The fitting team were great and worked hard and got the job done quickly and efficiently, with not too much mess. We’re really pleased with the results.”

Louise Sanderson, Freefoam UK Marketing Manager, summarises: “Our marketing team know how valuable homeowner testimonials and case studies can be. We focus on generating good quality, relevant case studies to showcase our range of products and illustrate how they are being used to transform and improve homes around the country. 

“We work closely throughout the whole supply chain with suppliers, installers and homeowners to shine a light on the excellent work that is happening throughout the UK.”
