FREEFOAM ARE SERIOUS ABOUT SUPPORTING CUSTOMERS


‘It demonstrates their innovation and understanding of the marketplace and makes them such an excellent supplier to work with.’


Freefoam, the leading manufacturer of environmentally friendly and innovative roofline and rainwater products, announces it has recently developed a unique flexible ‘H’ soffit trim. Developed in conjunction with valued customer Willmott’s of Reading, this new addition to the soffit range features a flexible ‘spine’ that allows the trim to be bent to any angle between 90o and 180o.


Willmott’s of Reading approached


Freefoam looking for a product that would resolve several ongoing soffit installation issues. George Petts, at Willmott’s, explains: “We were increasingly coming across building projects that required us to fit soffits together


at varying angles, including porches, hip roofs with sloping soffits, and bay window corners. Whilst solutions acceptable to the customer could be found using existing trims, there was never a ‘one size fits all’ solution. This new trim is the answer!”


“It’s absolutely perfect, giving us a tailor made product for all these situations. We’ve always found Freefoam to be very receptive to our ideas and suggestions for product development. It’s one of the many reasons why Freefoam is our major brand. It demonstrates their innovation and understanding of the marketplace and makes them such an excellent supplier to work with.”


ASSURE TOPS THE CENTURY FOR NETWORK VEKA


Network VEKA is celebrating signing the 100th member to its Assure self-certification scheme just a year after the initiative was launched.


Now, more than 80% of all installer members in England and


Wales have the Assure accreditation, giving them subscription-free self-certification while some other schemes can ask anything from hundreds to over £1,000 a year. The century line was crossed by Camberley-based Complete Aluminium Systems, followed shortly after by the 101st, Hall’s Property Services of Aldborough. Both are also new recruits to Network VEKA; they signed up to the scheme as soon as their applications were accepted by the Steering Group.


Assure is one of several self-certification schemes but is available exclusively to Network VEKA members, who pay nothing more

than a token £1.50 certificate fee per registration. Self-certification is a statutory requirement in England and Wales but several Scots members have also joined Assure because of the added confidence it offers the homeowner.


Network VEKA MD John Ogilvie added that the scheme’s


exclusivity also gave homeowners the peace of mind of knowing that they are also covered by all of the other assurances and guarantees given to every customer.
