Freefoam was the first to offer an extended transferable 50 years Lifetime Guarantee on white roofline, rainwater and cladding products announced last year. This is the final stage of a longstanding commitment to provide quality products backed by meaningful guarantees.  Freefoam were first to offer an extended transferable 20 year guarantee, later rising to a 25 year long life guarantee followed by an increase to a 30 year long life guarantee as proof of performance in use built up.

In rainwater, Freefoam was first to develop a co-extruded gutter, a long life no-leak no squeak gutter seal, and first to provide protective tape on downpipes so products survive knocks in transit and can be installed without scratches.

Freefoam was first to offer a wide range of colours from stock on short lead times, and is still the only company with a 10 year colour guarantee, backed by its innovative Colormax technology.

Freefoam led in the move to produce safer products and were first to manufacture 100% lead free products.

Freefoam were first to add built in UV protection to its range, manufacturing with an advanced formulation with extra Titanium Dioxide (TiO2).

Aidan Harte Managing Director commented “The publication of this list is a significant landmark for Freefoam.  Making, and guaranteeing, long life, innovative products is a life-long company commitment that involves our technical and manufacturing resources and the cumulative experience of products in use over many years. Roofline, rainwater and cladding are fit-and-forget products. That’s what customers want to help them compete in difficult markets, and we have made a commitment to manufacture trouble-free long life products which meet their expectations.”
