The cost of your interior barn doors

You can have a barn style sliding door that functions as an entrance to a garage or barn and even as an interior design sliding door, giving your home that traditional appearance. The barn style sliding door gives an advantage in that it does not take up any additional space, for it will slide along the wall instead of needing more cavity space inside of a wall. The advantage of exterior sliding doors means no more having to dig them out of the snow in the winter to get the car out of your garage. Also, sliding garage and barn doors are less in weight than your traditional doors, which prevents the tracks from being warped

  • Whether you get an interior or an exterior barn style sliding door, it is going to require a track to slide on and additional hardware. The cost of them will depend on how much weight it will be able to hold, its durability, size, I it is a one or a two door (the number of tracks will be needed), and whether it is intended or exterior or interior usage for those who use it as an interior opening generally have more decorative ascents
  • The lightweight aluminum, in a plain track system and excluding the doors will begin with a cost of between $100.00 to $200.00 dollars and holds between 75lbs. to 125 lbs. If you are wanting a basic package that is going to include everything needed in one deal, depending on the intended weight capacity, materials, and how many tracks you are wanting, it will run between $300 and $2,000.00 dollars. You can shop for barn door track system at for a wide range of different styles, including industrial sliding doors.
  • A standard size of lightweight sliding doors (on a track system) will run between $100.00 to $250.00 dollars. If you are wanting the appearance indoors of an exterior barn sliding door the cost will be between $300.00 to $700.00 dollars for custom and over-sized orders having glass inserts. For models that are entirely wood they run between $500.00 and $1,000.00 dollars.
  • Bringing a total cost for your track and door, not including the cost of installation and labor to $200.00 and $1,000.00 dollars, and this is for the simplest interior barn sliding door, however, if you’re interested in rugged exterior doors it is going to run between $500.00 and $2,500.00 dollars. Located in Washington, Uncle Howard’s is selling the classic barn doors, which include the hardware needed, for around $1,100.00 and $1.400.00 dollars, plus additional for shipping.
  • These doors can generally be installed within a couple of hours by the use of a ladder, carpenter’s level, and a power drill. This is a process requiring assistants in lifting the huge doors onto the tracks, which includes an additional cost for the handyman of around $100.00 to $300.00 dollars for the labor of installation, this will depend on the local going rates, size of doors, and the number of doors. If in an urban area, the cost of having them installed by a carpenter could be higher.
  • A sliding barn door can be built for just the cost of the lumber to build it, however, the track system itself will be an additional cost of $100.00 to $2,000.00 dollars, depending on the weight capacity, size, style, and materials needed.

What should be included

  • Sliding barn doors leave one side of the entry way visible and the other side will not be. They are installed on a railing that slides across the opening of the entryway (similar to that of a pocket door). These doors can come in a size large enough to cover a barn or a garage door opening and also as small as an interior standard size door. They are generally more heavier and have sturdier hardware than your pocket doors, this keeps the door from being able to swing at the bottom.
  • It is fairly easy to install sliding barn doors, there is not any demolition needed to the walls like with pocket doors. However, the bracket that the hold the tracks does have to be mounted with wall studs, or else ceiling joists. Never install sliding barn doors in an area where they will be opening and closing across windows, electrical outlets, pictures, or any other kinds of things.
  • Sliding barn doors comes in a wide range of styles. You can check-out the examples given on the uses of interior and exterior barn style sliding doors online at or Chic Coles Blog.
