Energy bills are high and set to get higher in the future. While we have little control over these increases, we

accumulations of dampness - is costing you dearly? In fact, a damp exterior loses almost all of its insulation
One solution is to insulate the exterior of your home with Fortex cladding. Not only will you reduce your
energy bill, but you will also reduce CO2 emissions thus directly benefitting the environment. Designed for
all types of exteriors - brick, masonry or concrete - the fixing of Fortex cladding is quick and easy, and you
will feel the benefits immediately.

home you will make that job easy - itís UV and weather resistant and just requires an occasional wipe
down with water and a mild detergent to maintain a clean and grime free appearance. Freefoamís cladding
products qualify for a 10 year guarantee*.
