My Cladding website delivers results for homeowners and installers

Freefoam Building Products has announced a new video testimonial to highlight the support it gives installers and consumers.

Homeowner Mr Eddie Bellringer wanted to replace old and tired looking render on his home and turned to Freefoam’s site Offering information about cladding styles, designs and colours with the opportunity to receive samples and an installation quote from a local company, the site is designed to give homeowners all the tools and support they need in one place.

Mr Bellringer explained: “My wife and I have recently retired and we were looking to make our house low maintenance and something that would fit in with the house style and the housing estate generally. Freefoam sent us samples of the X-Wood Cladding and arranged for Freefoam stockist and installer Tru Plastics to quote for supply and fit. We’re delighted with the results, during installation passers-by and neighbours were really interested in the products, and the installers ran out of business cards!”

X-Wood is a PVC-U exterior cladding that is said to look and handle like wood but without all the usual maintenance issues associated with timber. Freefoam has designed and produced a 16mm cladding board comprised of three different layers – a heavy-duty through coloured plastic foam core, covered with a plastic skin and then coated with Renolit film which is said to create a hard-wearing, stable material with a subtle woodgrain effect finish.

The range is available in a choice of six contemporary woodgrain finish colours from subtle white, cream and greyed cedar to traditional oak and more dramatic anthracite grey and wine red, all with a ten-year guarantee.

Louise Sanderson, UK marketing manager summarised: “We consistently get good results from our consumer websites. People are looking to maintain and improve their homes but want that process to be quick and simple. It’s powerful to get testimonials from homeowners that illustrate how manufacturers like Freefoam can facilitate and support homeowners, as well as delivering valuable business to our installer customer base – it’s a win, win, win situation!”
