Freefoam fascia used for dormer feature
Prestigious house builder Shanly Homes has used Freefoam fascia on a new development at Helios Court, Maidenhead. The exclusive apartment block features a double fascia dormer detail using Freefoam roofline products to create an attractive stepped effect beneath the flat dormer roof. With developers looking for more sophisticated and original features Freefoam products offer the flexibility and opportunity to create bespoke installations without compromising on functionality or aesthetics.
Developed in conjunction with supplier Willmotts of Reading and site staff the styling is perfect for the west aspect of this corner site. George Petts, Sales and Technical Manager, Willmotts explained “As suppliers we work closely with house builders to help them achieve the best possible look and finish for their developments. I originally worked with Shanly’s Principal Carpenter and Technical Manager to develop this style of dormer, which has since become their standard format for Flat Roof Dormers. Having supplied Freefoam products for many years we know the range inside out, and use our technical knowledge and experience to generate bespoke detailing for our clients”
Freefoam 150mm Full Replacement Square Leg Fascia Board is supplied for both levels and cut on-site to 100mm for the Lower Section. General Purpose Board is used for one level and Vented General Purpose Board for the other level, to provide ventilation. Each dormer is also constructed to slope slightly from front to back, where rainwater discharges into a secret gutter and then on to the Main Roof. This avoids fitting rainwater to the dormers themselves, so creating a much cleaner looking installation.
Freefoam manufacture the complete roofline solution, fascia and soffit in a wide range of widths and depths for a variety of applications all guaranteed for up to 50 years.
Colin St John, General Manager summarised “This development is another illustration of the suitability and flexibility of Freefoam products for house builders, allowing them to create individual detailing and bespoke features, to provide high specification properties for todays discerning homeowner.”
