Roofbase has partnered with Freefoam, a specialist provider of uPVC fascia and soffit products, to explore their time saving, maintenance free innovative X-Wood cladding, manufactured with a combination of three different layers of PVC with its own distinct high performance characteristics.
As a proud supplier of Freefoam’s uPVC fascia & soffit products throughout our network of local merchants, we’ve put Freefoam under the microscope in this week’s manufacture insights asking key questions about their X-Wood cladding to inform roofing and building contractors.
Freefoam is a leading manufacturer of PVC-U and PVC-UE building products including a wide range of fascia, soffit, rainwater systems, external cladding and interior decorative panelling.
In 2018 Freefoam produced enough Hollow Soffit to reach from Northampton to Preston! (129miles)
The majority of foiled woodgrain effect cladding products are 10mm thick. X-Wood is a high density 16mm thick board with a Premium Woodgrain Foil. Coupled with a range of high-end aluminium trims this makes X-Wood unique in the marketplace.
PVC X-Wood cladding offers an ultra-low maintenance cladding option. No costly and time-consuming repainting and maintenance like wood cladding. X-Wood cladding just needs a gentle wipe down with water to keep it looking good for at least 10 years.
X-Wood cladding features an attractive ‘foiled’ woodgrain finish. Available in a choice of six colours: White, Cream, Greyed Cedar, Oak, Wine Red & Anthracite Grey.
The woodgrain effect is achieved with a superior market leading Renolit colour film. Renolit guarantees the colour will not change or fade for ten years. We simply pass this guarantee on to the homeowner.
The real benefit of X-Wood cladding is the high-quality attractive finish that requires very little maintenance. It is the ultimate fit and forget product.
Ongoing maintenance can be very costly. Over the long term X-Wood cladding gives excellent lifetime cost savings. No expensive repainting and repairing.
Yes, X-Wood cladding can be used anywhere where wood might traditionally be used. Ideal for replacing any wood exterior facades, gable ends and dormers. Perfect for new build projects, renovations or home improvement projects.
