Stock Building Supply now carrying PureColor Doors
Stock Building Supply’s Albuquerque branch is the latest company to be carrying PureColor Prefinished Interior Doors, which uses a high-performance, odorless, zero-VOC finish.
The doors are made with sustainable, recycled-material High Density Fiberboard with a hollow or solid core, and they come in a variety of color choices topped off with PureColor EvenGrain finishes.
“We are delighted to offer an alternative to the standard white doors typically seen in new homes,” stated Jason Loveless, Stock Building Supply market manager. “These doors are both ecofriendly and beautiful while also providing builders the ability to deliver custom touches to their interiors at an affordable price point, which homebuyers will embrace."
Additionally, PureColor is headquartered in Albuquerque, helping it better serve Stock Building Supply’s local customer base in New Mexico.
“PureColor is committed to innovating healthy product options for the building supply market and we couldn’t be more excited to work with our local Stock Building Supply branch to offer prefinished doors options to the New Mexico homebuilder market,” said Scott Caruso, PureColor president. “PureColor prefinished interior doors are sustainable, beautiful and durable which is great news for the environment, homebuilders, and homebuyers."
