Tracy Denton shows off one of the most popular doors carried by Building Materials Factory Outlet in Tulsa.
Building Materials Factory Outlet (BMFO) is located on 41st Street between Memorial and Sheridan in Tulsa. The company features an ever-expanding inventory of windows, vanities, doors, light fixtures, countertops, trim and molding, cabinets, light household variety tools, and much, much more. And the beauty of this store is that all the merchandise is available at discount prices. If you’re planning a home or business remodeling project, now or in the future, you’ll want to be sure to check out the merchandise and the deals at BMFO. They sell to the general public and to contractors.
BMFO carries a nice inventory of freestanding vanity sets that include the vanity, mirrors and freestanding tub. They come in a variety of styles, shapes and finishes. And, the showroom has over 1,200 vanity light sets in stock, in all types and styles.
If you’re considering a new or replacement solid surface material for your kitchen or bath, consider a manmade product called Mystera. Mystera solid surfaces look like natural stone with the added benefit of a solid surface, and provide elegance to kitchen countertops, center islands, vanity tops, tub surrounds and shower walls. For commercial project applications, the product is also used for wall cladding, counter faces, tabletops, elevator panels and more. Adding an element of design to any project, Mystera is also quite functional because it’s easy to clean and maintain. “Mystera is our cost-effective alternative to natural stone,” says Marco Scott, BMFO sales staff member. In addition to looking good, Mystera comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty, is non-porous, and is resistant to chemicals, stains, mold and bacteria. If ever damaged, it is also easy to repair. And one more good thing – Mystera is manufactured right here in Oklahoma.
BMFO stocks a large inventory of windows in assorted styles and sizes in vinyl, aluminum and wood. Many are double-pane windows with Low E glass, which is effective in reflecting heat back to its source. It is able to do so by utilizing an ultrathin metallic coating on or in the glass itself. BMFO also carries a selection of windows with argon gas between the glass panes.
Sales staff member Marco Scott says if you’re looking for vanity lights, check out the 1,200-plus in stock at BMFO.
You’ll also find interior and exterior doors of oak, mahogany, alder, pine and cedar at BMFO. In addition to wood doors, they carry a selection of steel products. Whether you’re looking for finished or unfinished offerings, double doors, or sliders for patios, it’s a good bet that they will have what you want in stock.
BMFO stocks trim materials including molding, crown and baseboard selections, plus fireplace insert kits in multiple styles and sizes, wood burning or gas.
When you visit BMFO, check out their cabinetry products in flat packs or pre-assembled. Flat pack units are pre-finished cherry, light oak or white, and require assembly and installation by the customer. Pre-assembled styles are mostly light oak and are ready for installation.
Sales personnel at BMFO are friendly, knowledgeable, and offer lots of good advice with suggestions to assist you in the decision-making process for your project. To sum it up, salesman Tracy Denton says, “This is a really affordable place with a huge selection.”
