barn door cost

When you’re looking to make a statement with your décor, or simply want to lend a rural flavor to your urban environment, interior sliding barn doors fit the bill. As with a pocket door, they slide along a track, so they stay out of the way when the door is open. However, unlike a pocket door, they sit flush against the wall rather than requiring a cavity (hence the name “pocket” door).

Styles range from authentic-looking barn doors to contemporary designs featuring windows and other decorative items, meaning there’s an option for every type of décor. Sizes also vary considerably, in both length and width. You can also install double sliding barn doors, which move in opposite directions along the track.

Pricing for Interior Sliding Barn Doors

Costs vary widely depending on size, the work needed to prepare the area for installation, manufacturer, materials, and whether you want a custom door. The weight of the door also plays a role, as it dictates the number of tracks required to support it. Typically, the cost of a sliding barn door is more than a pocket door but less than that of a traditional sliding door.

  • A lightweight door, about the size of a standard interior door, ranges between $100 and $250.
  • A door similar to an actual barn door in size and weight ranges between $300 and $700.
  • A door with glass inserts averages around $500.
  • All-wood and custom models average around $750.
  • A basic sliding barn door with track hardware starts at around $300 and goes up to around $1,000.
  • Rustic-style models, including track hardware, range between $500 and $2,500.

The Cost to Install an Interior Barn Door

The typical installation requires an aluminum track set over the door. The top of the door includes rollers that attach to the track and allow the door to slide back and forth easily. The bottom of the door may also include a guide to help prevent rocking.

Installation costs vary a great deal, depending on where you live (labor rates are highly dependent on local market standards) and the size of the door. A larger door, obviously, requires more labor and time to install, and typically needs at least two people to do it properly.

Typical installation takes around three or four hours, with an average price between $200 and $300 for lighter weight doors. However, custom-built models usually come with a higher cost for installation, up to around $500. Be sure to ask your vendor about installation costs before purchasing your new barn door.

Additional Cost Considerations

If your goal is installing an authentic barn door (at least in term of aesthetics), expect to pay more for both the door and the installation. Contemporary models typically fit a standard doorway, but oversized barn doors rarely do. If your door includes glass, you also pay a bit more. Expect to pay at least $500 for an oversized barn door, and up to $700 if it includes glass.

Heavier doors, particularly those made of walnut, mahogany, or maple, also cost more than the standard door, especially when custom made. You’ll pay anywhere from $500 to $1,000 for one of these models.

None of these prices include the hardware required, i.e. the aluminum track on which the door slides. For a door weighing 125 or less, this track system averages around $150. If the door weighs more than this, you need multiple tracks. That means that a traditional barn door could run you as much as $800 due to its weight.

If you install double barn-style doors, you need to double the number of tracks you’d need for a single door. That means that, even if each door weighs less than 125 pounds, you’ll pay an average of $300 for the aluminum track hardware.

Finally, decorative tracks and door hardware carry an additional cost. Prices here range from a low $300 all the way to $2,000 or more, depending on the type of material used and the number of tracks your door requires.

Comparing Costs and Vendors

As always, obtain quotes from at least three different vendors or manufacturers to help ensure you get the best price. If you’re looking for a custom-made door, this is especially important, as you want to ensure you get the best, most reliable workmanship from your provider. Ultimately, you want the best product for the best price. Do not, however, automatically choose the cheapest option. Look carefully at the proposal and ask questions. One may include installation or hardware where another doesn’t, so make sure you’re comparing apples to apples when reviewing quotes. Finally, don’t forget to look online for company reviews, where you’ll learn about the customer service, how well the company handled any issues, and how happy their former customers are with their product.

A personal loan is a medium term loan with a fixed interest rate that is repaid in equal monthly payments and it's usually limited to 24 months. Loan offers and eligibility depend on your individual credit profile. Our lenders can help you obtain as much as $3,000 depending on the lender, your state and your financial situation.

The owner and operator of businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and is not involved into making credit decisions associated with lending or making loan offers.

The website does not charge any fees for its service, nor does it oblige any user to initiate contact with any of the lenders or third parties or accept any loan product or service offered by the lenders. All the data concerning personal loan products and the industry is presented on the website for information purposes only.

Businessfinancenews.com does not collect, store or has access to the information regarding the fees and charges associated with the contacting lenders and/or any loan products. Online personal loans are not available in all the states. Not all the lenders in the network can provide the loans up to $3,000. Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form. The lenders may need to perform credit check via one or more credit bureaus, including but not limited to major credit bureaus in order to determine credit reliability and the scopes of credit products to offer. The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 

APR REPRESENTATIVE

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
