Red Barn Siding
Red barn siding offers the most classic “Americana” feel available in original face lumber. For centuries, barns across the northeastern United States have been painted red with white trim. Ferric oxide—the chemical that creates the redness of barn paint—was the cheapest and most readily available chemical for early farmers. The chemical makeup also acted as a preservative, protecting barn wood over the years. This is how our red barn siding comes to you, as a product cracked, weathered, and yet preserved by time.
Because each barn varies, the coloration and makeup of our red barn siding varies too, from hues of soft blush to bright, vivid red. This product is often used in reclaimed siding and wallboards that add a pop of color to farmhouse and Americana décor.
Red barn siding varies dependent on what is available in individual barns and wood sources. Inventory is cut to desired specifications upon request.
