Self builders do it with one shade of grey!

Experienced self builder Mr Colin Goodwin has recently used Freefoam fascia and soffit in Anthracite Grey to create a striking contemporary roofline on his new four bedroom property. Freefoam added Anthracite Grey, Ral 7016, to its range in response to increased demand from builders and developers. The colour offers an exact match to specified window frames and doors.

Situated in an established residential area of Grimsby the property sits on a half acre site previously occupied by a 2 bedroom bungalow Mr Goodwin has already built three other self build properties but all were in a traditional style. He explains

“We wanted a much more contemporary feel for this house. The large windows on two elevations of the property were a key feature of the exterior design. I chose a grey finish for the frames to give a modern feel but wanted to make sure that everything else matched to create a unified sleek look. I was introduced to the Freefoam colour range through my local supplier and hadn’t realised it was available. Although we were offered a choice of three different greys Anthracite Grey in Ral 7016 was an exact match to the window frames and coordinates well with the galvanised rainwater system so made the perfect choice. We’re very pleased with the result.”
