X-Wood cladding creates superb refurbishment

Freefoam Building Products are proud to release a new case study featuring the PVC foiled X-Wood cladding range.

This beautiful property in rural Leicestershire originally featured white wood windows and a wood clad annex. The present homeowners decided to update the windows and refurbish the annex area to create an easy to maintain, long lasting façade that met the same high standards as their home. Online research led them to Freefoam and the X-Wood cladding range.  After receiving samples of several colour options the Anthracite Grey finish was selected to tone in with the brick work and roof. It’s easy wipe clean surface and high quality performance qualities matched the homeowner’s selection criteria exactly.

The X-Wood cladding range is an innovative PVC-U exterior cladding that looks and handles like wood but without all the usual maintenance issues associated with timber with a subtle woodgrain finish designed to bring a refreshing new look to the exterior of any refurbishment or new build project. Freefoam have used their manufacturing expertise to design and produce an attractive high performance cladding comprised of three different layers – a heavy duty through coloured plastic foam core, covered with a durable plastic skin and then coated with market leading Renolit film which creates a hard wearing, stable material with a beautiful subtle woodgrain effect finish.

The range is available in a choice of six contemporary colours to create an attractive finish. From subtle White, Cream and Greyed Cedar to traditional Oak and more dramatic Anthracite Grey and Wine Red all with an impressive ten-year guarantee. Suitable for both commercial and domestic new build or renovation projects and with its high-performance credentials X-Wood can also be successfully used in coastal and highly exposed areas.

Colin St John, Commercial Director, explains:

“We have seen the market appetite for PVC cladding steadily increase and are delighted to see this high performance durable product being used to such great effect. Ideal for architects, specifiers and homeowners the 16mm thick X-Wood board with its attractive finish is the perfect product for any development. We have developed X-Wood to complement our other cladding products and to give our customers the opportunity to approach new and growing markets.”
