External Cladding – Traditional style with modern materials!

All our durable cladding products provide not only a decorative but also a protective facing in building exteriors, and act as an additional thermal insulation agent. uPVC external cladding is a fantastic way of transforming the façade of a building quickly, and easily.

To ensure you can choose the finish that is right for you, we offer a wide range of cladding products including Fortex textured cladding in a choice of styles, embossed finishes, sizes and colours. We also offer standard open v cladding and shiplap cladding styles in white and woodgrain finishes.

All cladding products are available with related trims and matching colour ranges of fascia boards, soffit boards, and architraves, to ensure a neat and professional installation.

Fortex Cladding

Fortex cladding is a range of low maintenance uPVC exterior cladding available in a attractive finish; an authentic embossed wood effect available in double shiplap and weatherboard profiles in a wide range of subtle colours.

Benefits of Fortex Cladding

  • Durable: The Fortex cladding range is manufactured to stand the test of time. The white products are eligible for an impressive 20-year manufacturer guarantee and colour for 10 years, backed by Freefoam’s environmentally friendly lead-free formulation.
  • Light and easy to install: Fortex cladding panels are designed to make storing, handling and fitting quick and easy. With the weatherboard cladding weighing just 3.15kg per 5 metre board it is 4 times lighter than comparable fibre cement board.
  • A+ rated: PVC cladding offers a sustainable solution. Fortex comes with significant environmental credentials with the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) ‘Green Guide to Specification’ giving PVC cladding an A+ rating when installed with standard components.

Knowing how much exterior PVC cladding you will need for an installation project can be difficult. Freefoam has made it easy by providing a free Cladding Calculator to help you estimate how much cladding will cover the area in question. The calculator will help to eliminate high amounts of wastage, saving you money and the environment.

Using the Cladding Calculator

The Freefoam Cladding Calculator will estimate the number of boards and packs needed for your project. Choose your desired external cladding board and enter the dimensions of the cladding area into the relevant boxes. We have two calculators; one for triangular areas, perfect for gable ends, and one for rectangular areas. Just combine them both if you have a larger project.

To help you visualise your ideas, Freefoam has created an interactive Cladding Visualiser. Our handy tool provides an example of the entire range of colours available in the Freefoam Fortex embossed cladding collection.

Using the calculator is simple. Just select a house image like your project, then click through the coloured uPVC cladding options available for both the external cladding board and trims.
