Veneer Barn Siding
Our adhesive backed reclaimed wall paneling is only 1/8″ thick, making it lightweight, easy to install, and allowing it to maintain a very low profile for installations over existing finished wall and ceiling applications. We use the highest quality double sided adhesive with excellent hold strength and elasticity. The extra thickness of the adhesive strips allows for the paneling to properly bridge slight imperfections in the wall surface for a long lasting installation that looks just like solid wood paneling. The paneling is straight and true to dimension, with pre-squared ends for ease of installation and minimal cutting. Veneer barn siding boards are random in length, ranging from 18”-5’ and a uniform width of 5 1/4″.
Solid Barn Siding
Our solid barnboard is great for heavier duty applications, and it can be used for stand alone features like partitions, shelves, and other projects. At 5/8″ thick, it can be installed over bare stud walls, or on top of finished walls where drywall or other finishes have already been installed. Solid barn siding boards are random in length, ranging from 18”-5’ and a uniform width of 5 1/4″.
