USA: Barn Siding Manufacturers
ABOUT BARN SIDING
Recycled wood barn siding is available from suppliers across the USA who dismantle historic barns which are beyond repair. Many old barns are mended and reused. However, many are suffering from critical disrepair. Once its roof starts collapsing, a barn's wood beams and barn board interior will soon deteriorate beyond repair. Most recycled barn wood comes from original stands of old growth forests and, as a result has remarkable color and texture. In addition to barn siding, it is well suited for use in timber frame homes, post and beam construction, open ceiling beams, exposed wood beams, barnwood furniture, barnwood flooring, barn oak furniture, and moldings.
Recycled siding is available in widths of between 7 and 12 inches, and is typically between 1/2 inch and 1 inch thick.
