Barn Door / May 20, 2018 / Genevieve Roux
Barn door hardware is essentially large sliding barn doors that are slightly expensive but elegant looking. The hardware comprises of metal tracks and wheels and bolts required for it to be wall-mounted. An ordinary sliding track can be extremely costly - almost $800 for high-end quality. The doors are not included in this costing and must be purchased locally and later customized to fit your preferences. Some are fitted with sliding mirrors which can be used in bathrooms for extra privacy. The greatest advantage of course is that with it you need not reserve extra space that you would normally have to keep for an ordinary door to be opened. These doors do not slide into walls; rather these add to the overall decor of any room. Reasons To Choose Barn Door Hardware: * These doors are strong and durable being made of solid steel tracks.
With the growing demand of such hardware many companies offer various discounts and combo packages to their customers to beat the competition in the industry. Consumers can make the most of these discounts only if they know about them. Many such manufactures can be found on the internet. Their websites mention their various products discounts and rates. Installing a barn door is a very simple task. Many companies offer kits with manuals having detail information on how to install these doors. However if a person is not familiar or comfortable doing the same professional help is always available. Usually manufacturers selling such doors provide installation services free of cost. Nevertheless there are companies that offer this service of installation separately. Experts are sent to the house and the job is completed to perfection. Depending on the complexity involved in installing doors of different designs the companys service charges may vary.
Also it is a good idea that when it comes to purchasing the wood for your barn door you purchase wood which has already been treated. Then this means that you wont have to worry about adding a protective coating to the barn door you are building until after construction has been completed. However if you are going to use untreated wood then after cutting the various pieces of wood to size it is a good idea to add a protective coating to them before construction begins. This will help to ensure that all areas of the door are protected from the elements and ensure that water from the ground will not be absorbed by the wood at the base. When it comes to coating the wood you have chosen to use to build a barn door you have a number of options available to you. You can either stain or paint the wood which one you choose will of course depend on the kind of coating that has been used on the rest of the barn to protect it.
