With the growing interest in PVC cladding as a home improvement solution.
Freefoam Building Products is pleased to announce the launch of two handy online tools to help make choosing cladding for your project easier and simpler, a cladding visualiser and a cladding calculator.
Recognising that the majority of home improvement product research is now carried out online Freefoam have introduced a clever tool to help specifiers, developers and homeowners visualise the Freefoam colour range of cladding products on a variety of house types. With the ability to also select matching or contrasting trims the tool gives users the opportunity to experiment with colour combinations and create a realistic visual representation.
Having product quantities to price up a project can be extremely useful. The Freefoam cladding calculator gives customers the opportunity to generate an estimate of the number of boards and packs needed for a project. Simply type in dimensions in metres and the calculator works out the rest giving users a final quantity.
The Freefoam cladding range features a choice of 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 and Rosewood to contemporary Anthracite Grey and Argyl Brown or subtle Misty Grey and Cappuccino.
PVC-U cladding requires minimal maintenance once installed a major benefit for property owners and a compelling feature for any property developer or public sector housing provider. With significant environmental credentials, being awarded an A+ rating from the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) ‘Green Guide To Specification’ when installed with standard components, the range makes a real alternative to timber and fibre cement products.
Colin St John, UK General Manager explained:
“With a growing range of external cladding we wanted to help specifiers and home owners see the potential our products can bring to any project. Being able to visualise colour and calculate pack quantities on line makes our products much more accessible to customers and simplifies the decision making process”
