A prevalent question when buying a sliding barn door is: how tall and wide should my barn door be? What most people do not know is that measuring your door frame for a barn door is different from measuring for a regular swing door.

All our doors are made of solid wood and available in 20 different wood species. We cut and sand each plank by hand and can assemble it for you, or send it in pre-cut pieces for a fun & easyDIY barn door project! Planks are pre-cut and slotted, and the door can easily be assembled, finished, and installed in a weekend.

*Please note: All hardware is sold separately, please see our barn door hardware kits for sliding hardware options.
We highly recommend adding a finish to your door to protect it and make sure that it is eligible to be covered by our warranty.
If you'd like us to take care of door finishing, we will apply several coats of the finish of your choice on all sides of the planks. When the kit arrives, you can assemble the pieces yourself. If DIY isn't your thing, we'll finish and assemble your door - just select those options in the menu above! Clear finishes are only available if we assemble the door for you.
Each species of wood we offer boasts its own unique characteristics. Finishing your door with a clear urethane will not only protect it, but enhance the beauty of the wood by bringing out the striking color and detail of the grain. We offer Osmo clear satin finish, which is a hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions and coats the wood; or clear urethane, which is a plastic sealing coat that is water-resistant and more durable for environments that can cause lots of wear and tear on a door. Read more about the finishes we offer here.
Our color finishes are made for those who want to add some interesting elements to their space. We mixed these colors ourselves to ensure we could offer exclusive and high quality formulas, in the exact colors we wanted to see! From Coastal White (a pure white barn door finish) to Pacific Blue (a jewel blue tone inspired by the ocean), you're sure to fall in love with these versatile finishes.

Please note that all barn doors will ship separately from sliding hardware when purchased together. Doors are pictured with hardware for context. Sliding hardware is sold separately, and not included with the purchase of a door. Doors will not be pre-drilled for hardware. If you order a door and a hardware kit, we are unable to ship hardware installed on doors due to the risk of shipping damage.
We designed these doors with interior applications in mind. We don't recommend exterior use, and can't guarantee against warping or damage if you install your door outside. To have this door specially crafted for exterior use, call us at 1-800-694-5977and we will be happy to help!
If you need more than 10 doors, or if your project requires special consideration, please call 1-800-694-5977. We'd be happy to help!
When choosing a sliding barn door size, we recommend that the door overlaps the doorway slightly to minimize gaps. An inch of overlap on each side is a good rule for barn doors. In this case, a 36” x 80” doorway would need a 38” x 81” sliding barn door.
We offer the most common sliding barn door sizes online, but we are able to make doors in any size you need. Please call our team at 1-800-694-5977 for custom door options.
