Wide soffit just got woodgrained

Freefoam Building Products has added four woodgrain finishes to its wide 605mm soffit range. The wide General Purpose Board is said to be becoming a popular choice on many contemporary house styles.

Available in a choice of rosewood, light oak, black ash and anthracite grey, the woodgrain finish is said to allow for a fully coordinated roofline.

Freefoam says its woodgrain range is manufactured to last using Renolit Exofol MX foil that features solar shield technology, a technology to provide built-in UV protection, to reduce heat absorption, temperature build-up and expansion. Freefoam offers a 10-year guarantee on all woodgrain fascia and soffit.

According to Freefoam, colour for external PVC products such and windows, doors, balconies, fascia and guttering has been one of the major style-changes in the new build market in the last five years. Housebuilders are reportedly increasingly using colour to bring style and definition to developments and utilising colour elements as a cost-effective way to add a contemporary feel to developments.

Freefoam says it made a long-term commitment to colour right at the start of this trend to embrace new ways of manufacture and ensuring that colour and woodgrain facia and soffit are available across the entire range.

Colin St John, UK general manager, said: “Research and customer feedback has led us to add this wide soffit in woodgrain colours which will ensure that our range gives housebuilders and domestic installers the products they need to meet this growing demand.”
