​A Look at The BarnCraft Two Piece Barn Doors

The patent-pending Two Piece Barn Door collection features barn doors that are assembled as two pieces with quick-connect fasteners and hardware. This means they can be assembled in just a few minutes! This collection offers a variety of medium density fiberboard (MDF) designs as well as solid BarnWood Knotty Alder designs and is available in four sizes.

The Two Piece Barn Doors feature hollow core 1-½" thick doors produced with MDF. These doors feature a white-primed coating on both sides and the door design router is carved on the front side of the door. The back of the door is flat and smooth. The primed coating allows you to design, paint, or stain the door however you wish.

The Two Piece BarnWood Knotty Alder Barn Doors use real 6-inch wide ¾" tongue-and-groove wood planks. The 1" thick wooden cross rails are mounted on one side of the door only. Total door thickness at the rails is 1-¾". The BarnWood Knotty Alder Texture features knotty alder wood with enhanced distressed markings for an authentic weathered barn wood look.

No matter which Two Piece Barn Door you choose, you will be thrilled with the easy assembly and choice of six finishes. If you choose to paint or finish the door yourself, our guidelines are below and we are always here to help.

Finishing Guidelines

Going the DIY route to finish your Two Piece Barn Doors? Not to worry, we have everything you need to guide you along the way. First, we suggest you choose a quality wood stain such as Minwax, Behr, Sherwin Williams, or Cabot.

At the BarnDoorz factory, we use water-based stains, but you can use water, oil, or solvent-based stain systems based on your preference. When painting your door, we suggest using a primer coat and a compatible finish coat. For best results, sand all surfaces between coats of primer and finish.

Be sure to confirm that the top, bottom and side edges of the door are finished correctly after the door is trimmed for installation. Before installing your new barn door, allow 24-48 hours for the door to adapt to your area’s general humidity and temperature. Inspect your door thoroughly before installing. If you notice a problem, notify BarnDoorz for further instructions. Follow the Storage & Handling guidelines below prior to finishing.

Storage and Handling

●Before installing your new barn door, allow 24-48 hours for the door to adapt to your area’s general humidity and temperature.

●Always store doors flat in a clean, dry, well-ventilated room. Protect them from dirt, water and if stored for long periods of time, seal with a high-quality sealer or primer.

●Do not expose doors to abnormal heat, direct sunlight, direct moisture, extreme dryness or humidity.

●Deliver doors to your building site after plaster and cement are completely dry and avoid exposure to air-conditioned or heated environments prior to finishing.

●If stored on the job site and to avoid moisture absorption, be sure to seal all ends and edges with a wood sealer.

●To prevent oils and dirt from penetrating the wood grains, always handle doors with clean or gloved hands.

●Always lift and carry (do not drag) doors to prevent damage to the surface.
