Maximise your existing order book with Freefoam cladding

All home improvement and roofing companies are looking for ways to expand their business. Products to upsell to existing customers, opportunities to revisit previous customers and options to develop new markets – for window, roofline and conservatory fitters PVC cladding could be that opportunity.There has been a huge interest in external cladding products in recent years, partly driven by aspirational TV shows like Grand Designs where it seems that every new build project features cladding in some way. Timber is still popular but homeowners are now looking for low maintenance options – many busy families have little time or skill for the on-going re-painting and repair that timber requires.

PVC-U external cladding is one of the fastest growing home improvement products. Its versatility means it can be used on a huge variety of projects from a feature wall on an existing building, an exterior finish for a new extension or to give an attractive finish to a loft conversion. Cladding is one of the quickest and simplest ways of totally transforming the look of any home.

Freefoam Building Products are specialist PVC manufacturers producing a wide range of long lasting, low maintenance cladding products. The Freefoam cladding range features a choice of a smooth woodgrain finish or Fortex® timber effect embossed boards in Shiplap, Double Shiplap and Weatherboard styles. Available in a wide variety of colours from traditional Mahogany, Rosewood and Oak to subtle ‘New England’ shades of Misty Grey and Cappuccino and more dramatic contemporary options like Anthracite Grey, Slate Grey and Black Ash. All ranges come with a high quality, purpose made, easy to fit trim system making installation straight-forward and quick.

PVC-U cladding also offers significant environmental credentials, being awarded an A+ rating from the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) ‘Green Guide to Specification’ when installed with standard components, making PVC a real alternative to timber and fibre cement products.

Commercial Director, Colin St John, explains “Cladding is fast becoming one of our success stories. As manufacturers we’re committed to bringing products to market that give our customers and our customer’s customers opportunities to grow and have always recognised and accepted that our Customers success was our success. Creating the ultimate win win has been our driver over the years. Developing winning products for winning stockists and installers and being part of the whole sales process has been key to continued growth.”
