Here are some handy tips to help you choose the correct Freefoam fascia for your requirements:

Storage and Handling prior to fitting:

  • Store all fascias, soffits and any trim lengths on a flat surface. These should not be propped up against anything or bent
  • Stack boards no higher than 1m
  • Avoid contact with and paint, solvents, bitumen, creosote, etc
  • All coloured products should not be stored in direct sunlight as this could cause heat distortion

Cutting Fascia & Soffit Boards:

  • Use standard carpentry tools
