Freefoam release a new case study featuring Fortex embossed Double Shiplap PVC cladding on four new homes in Stourbridge.
Built by Worcester based house builders 11:11 Property, the four large detached houses are built with an attractive mixture of brick, render and cladding in Argyl Brown and Cappuccino colours.
11:11 Property specialise in small exclusive developments in the Black Country, North Birmingham and North Worcestershire. It particularly focuses on the use of old brown field sites to reinvigorate and improve local areas.
These four individually designed exclusive properties feature a soft colour palette consisting of pale grey windows, white render and two different brick finishes – the darker brick with the lighter cladding in Cappuccino and lighter brick with the darker cladding in Argyl Brown.
Gavin Warr, Managing Director 11:11 Property (below), explains: “We take great pride in the standard of finish of our properties.
“We have used cedar cladding on previous developments but found the Freefoam cladding online and have been very pleased with it. It was excellent for ease and speed of installation and looks really good, which is very important to us, as we want to provide high quality homes that are attractive to prospective buyers.”
Sourced from local Freefoam stockists UPL Ltd and fitted by on site carpenters the Fortex cladding range comes with up to 10 year guarantee. This works well for property developers like 11: 11 Property many of whom offer their own standard 10-year guarantee on all properties.
The Fortex range came into being over 15 years ago and the range now includes double shiplap cladding and weatherboard cladding. The colour options have grown over that time as consumer trends have developed and changed.
From the original white and pale cream options to the more contemporary sought after shades of grey with the Fortex portfolio now including four grey options.
Gavin summarises: “We’re already considering using Freefoam cladding for another development, so I would have no hesitation in recommending it.”
