New video showcase

Freefoam Building Products has launched new video to showcase Pilkington Plastics.

Based in Horsham, West Sussex, Pilkington Plastics specialises in the supply and fitting of fascia, soffit, cladding, windows and doors. Installation is a busy and growing part of the business and the new video features a recent project on a large four-bedroom home with Black Ash fascia and Black guttering.

The original white wood roofline had been on the property since it was first built about 20 years ago and needing replacing, and the homeowner wanted a finish that complemented the design and style of the property.

Pilkington Plastics is a relatively recent Freefoam customer which started trading in 2017, set up by long-time friends Paul Le Grange and James Etherington; they started small and, thanks to hard work and Freefoam’s support, have developed into an established, well-respected local business.

James said: “We offer clients a full roof and roofline service, replacing tiles as well as fascia, soffit and gutter. From my experience Freefoam is the best roofline range on the market. It offers a wide range of colours and finishes, and they all come with strong guarantees – 50 years on white products and up to 10 years on colours.

“We’re also Freefoam Registered Installers, which again helps us grow our business. We receive free leads from Freefoam on a regular basis and plenty of marketing materials which help us to promote the products. This homeowner is very pleased with the installation and we’re now pricing up a relative’s property in the same development.”

Prior to starting the business Paul sold PVCU for 20+ years, and during that time had always worked with Freefoam. James also fitted Freefoam for many years, so their joint experience gave them the skills needed to run the own business.

“I think people choose Pilkington Plastics because of our knowledge of products,” Paul said. “Having a good understanding of our products and services helps to improve the confidence of our customers.

“I do feel that Freefoam wants to help my business to grow, and I find the support we get from Kim, our area sales manager, really useful. We like the products and have built up a strong partnership, so we don’t see why there wouldn’t be a positive future for Pilkington Plastics and Freefoam.”
