FAQs – Barn Doors

 

Q – DO YOU COME TO THE JOBSITE IN ORDER TO MEASURE UP TO DETERMINE WHAT SIZE DOOR WE NEED?

A – NOT USUALLY. IT IS SELDOM NECESSARY FOR US TO DO AN ON SITE VISIT. ALL WE NEED IS A FEW SIMPLE MEASUREMENTS. A PICTURE OR TWO SENT WITH MEASUREMENTS BY EMAIL IS USUALLY MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU A FIRM QUOTE FOR YOUR DOOR. IF THERE ARE UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES, WE CAN DO AN ONSITE VISIT FOR FINAL MEASUREMENTS BEFORE WE BEGIN TO BUILD YOUR DOOR.

 

Q – WHAT MEASUREMENTS DO WE NEED TO GIVE YOU?

A – USUALLY WE NEED THE FOLOWING BASIC MEASUREMENTS:

  • FLOOR TO CEILING
  • FLOOR TO TOP OF OPENING
  • FLOOR TO TOP OF DOOR TRIM (IF APPLICABLE)
  • FLOOR TO UNDERSIDE OF CROWN MOLDING (IF APPLICABLE)
  • WIDTH OF DOOR OPENING
  • IF YOU HAVE MOLDINGS, MEASURE WIDTH OF OUTSIDE TRIM TO OUTSIDE TRIM
  • DETERMINE WHICH DIRECTION YOUR DOOR WILL ROLL AND MEASURE THE WALL YOUR DOOR WILL ROLL INTO TO CONFIRM THAT YOU HAVE ENOUGH ROOM

 

Q – WE ARE JUST STARTING TO RENOVATE. IS THERE ANYTHING WE NEED IN PREPARATION FOR A BARN DOOR?

A – WELL, BEST CASE SCENARIO IS THAT YOU INSTALL BLOCKING HORIZONTALLY BETWEEN YOUR STUDS ABOVE YOUR DOOR OPENING AND THE FULL LENGTH THAT YOUR TRACK WILL BE IN THE DIRECTION YOUR DOOR WILL ROLL. BLOCKING CAN BE 2″ X 6″ OR 2″ X 8″ OR WIDER.  OTHERWISE, YOU WILL NEED TO USE A LEDGER BOARD.

 

 

Q – DO YOU SHIP DOORS?

A – YES WE DO!

 

 

Q- HOW MUCH HEAD ROOM DO WE NEED IN ORDER TO HANG A DOOR?

A – THIS DEPENDS ON WHAT STYLE OF OUR HARDWARE YOU CHOOSE. TYPICALLY, BETWEEN

6″ AND 12″ HEADROOM IS REQUIRED. IF YOU HAVE DOOR FRAMES, YOU WILL NEED ENOUGH ROOM ABOVE YOUR DOOR FRAMES. THE SAME APPLIES IF YOU HAVE CROWN MOLDINGS.

IT’S BEST TO CALL US IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE REGARDING HEADROOM.

 

Q – HOW THICK ARE YOUR BARN DOORS?

A – TYPICALLY, OUR DOORS FINISH UP AT ABOUT 2″ THICK.

 

Q – HOW CAN I CALCULATE HOW BIG OF A DOOR I NEED FOR MY DOORWAY?

A – MEASURE THE HEIGHT AND WIDTH OF YOUR DOOR OPENING. IF YOU HAVE FRAMES AROUND YOUR DOOR OPENING, ADD THAT INTO YOUR TOTAL HEIGHT AND WIDTH. THESE FINAL MEASUREMENTS WILL GIVE YOU A BASIC IDEA OF THE DOOR SIZE NEEDED. WE WILL ADJUST THE FINAL MEASUREMENTS TO BE SURE YOUR DOOR FITS PERFECTLY.
