Freefoam says It’s all about Colour.

We spoke to Freefoam Commercial Director Colin St John to find out all about colour fascia and soffit, the changes in the PVC market from white to colour and what this means for suppliers.

Tell us a bit about the background.

For many years white was the only option and the only choice for PVC Window, Doors and Fascia.

Colour was difficult to get and often had to be ordered well in advance and in large quantities.

But things have changed.

Manufacturers have developed new techniques and made colour a permanent part of their ranges.

So how are your colour products made?

Freefoam manufacture colour fascia, soffit and gutter using compounds as well as our own patented ColormaxTM technology.

The special process means the outside colour skin and the inside foam core are intrinsically bonded together creating hard wearing and long lasting colour products.

Is colour difficult to get hold of?

No, our technology means that we can manufacture colour fascia as part of our normal process. This means the majority of colours are now available from stock, and suppliers should see little difference in lead times between white and colour.

How  many colours are available?

We have a range of eight colours: white, black, leather brown,  pale gold, sable, storm grey, anthracite grey and dark grey. We are finding the grey shades to be the most popular, because they match to windows and doors. We recommend if suppliers want to get into colour promoting grey is a good way to start.

How can installers  benefit from the colour range?

Colour gives builders and home improvement specialists the opportunity to develop new business and give customers more choice. Developers and  architects like the advantages of using colour as a signature for their building projects and homeowners, inspired by home improvement programmes, now regularly choose colour to personalise their property and give it the all important ‘wow’ factor. All industry research shows the trend is set to continue.
