Achieve a barnwood look in your home or business by adding the unique aesthetic of this weathered wood as wall paneling, DIY projects or wall accents. Seasoned to rustic perfection, reclaimed barnwood siding has the durability to withstand the test of time. Rich with a working history, the timeless beauty of old barn wood is unmistakable. No two planks of antique barnwood are the same, and feature characteristics such as nail holes, screw holes, dents and knots. The coloring and weathered characteristics of each barn board depend on if the barn was located on a hill, in a valley, covered in ivy, or left exposed to the sun. The siding on a single barn will also differ, from faded red to gray and brown board, and everything in between!
Reclaimed barnwood siding is salvaged from century-old utilitarian structures that are no longer used for our modern farming practices. Most likely sawn from the nearby woodlot, the wood species of barn board siding can be varied and unpredictable. While the origin of our barnwood may be old, we choose our wood products selectively to ensure we’re delivering a high quality product for every building project. We provide these wood wall planks as-is, denailed, power washed, and kiln dried. Antique barnwood planks are available in specific and random widths, as well as a wide range of colors to suit a variety of siding projects.
Old barn wood products are great options for both interior and exterior DIY projects. A recent trend among homeowners is to add this siding as a unique wood accent wall for a barnwood look.
