Freefoam Building Products Launch New Video To Showcase Pilkington Plastics.

May 4, 2021 | Videos | 0 comments

Based in Horsham, West Sussex, Pilkington Plastics specialise 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 needed replacing and the homeowner wanted a finish that complemented the design and style of the property.

Pilkington Plastics are a relatively recent Freefoam customer who started trading in 2017 set up by long- time friends Paul Le Grange and James Etherington. They are a typical example of a Freefoam customer who has started small and, with dedication and hardwork by the team, alongside Freefoam’s support, have developed into an established, well respected local business.

James commented “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. They offer 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 relatives property in the same development!”

Prior to starting the business Paul had been involved with selling UPVC for 20 years plus, and during that time had always worked with Freefoam. James had also been fitting Freefoam for many years, so their joint experience gave them the skills needed to run the own business. Paul explained “I think people choose Pilkington Plastics because of our knowledge of products. Having a good understanding of our products and services helps to improve the confidence of our customers.”

Pilkington Plastics has changed and developed a lot already in the last 4 years. It took 2 years to get established, but is now continuing to go from strength to strength. Paul summarised “I do feel that Freefoam want to help my business to grow and 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.”
