Kerb appeal

Freefoam Building Products has showcased its dark grey fascia at a new Morris Homes site in Leicester.

The product was selected by to complement the grey window frames, juliet balconies and garage doors to achieve a coordinated, contemporary look.

Phil Shaw, procurement manager, said: “The site at Glebelands Park is one of our more contemporary sites. We’re often driven by planning guidelines and pride ourselves on being able to offer local authorities a ‘non-standard’ look that will enhance the local area. One of the ways we achieve this is by using colour instead of white. It immediately raises the profile of a house design and gives instant kerb appeal.”

Coloured fascia, soffit and guttering is manufactured using Freefoam’s Colormax technology – a master-batching process with a blend of natural PVCU and pigments that are simultaneously co-extruded.
