Freefoam Building Products has experienced an increase in demand for its PVC-U cladding products from stockists and installers.
Recently, the popularity of PVC-U external cladding has surged. Renowned for its versatility, it is one of the fastest growing home improvement products on the market.
This increase in interest can be attributed to aspirational TV shows, such as Grand Designs. Whilst timber and fibre cement products are still popular, PVC-U cladding offers a low maintenance alternative.
Cladding can transform the look of a home, quickly and simply. It can be specified to provide an exterior finish for a new extension or loft conversion, or to create a feature wall on an existing building.
When installed with standard components, PVC-U cladding boasts an A+ rating from BRE’s ‘Green Guide to Specification’.
Roofing and home improvement companies can maximise their order books and expand their businesses by investing in PVC-U cladding. The product provides an opportunity for businesses to revisit previous customers, and options to develop new markets.
Freefoam has experienced an increase in demand for its cladding from stockist and installers.
The company’s cladding range encompasses a variety of low maintenance products, in different styles and finishes. Its Fortex timber effect embossed boards are offered in Shiplap, Double Shiplap and Weatherboard styles; smooth woodgrain finishes are also available.
Colours sets include the ‘traditional’ – Rosewood, Mahogany, and Oak – and the ‘contemporary’ – Black Ash, Slate Grey, and Anthracite Grey. Subtle ‘New England’ shades of Misty Grey and Cappuccino are also available.
All PVC-U boards are supplied with a trim system, to ensure ease of installation.
