Blog

Stay up to date on trending topics, and new ideas, and read what our expert team has to say. You will find a variety of articles posted here that may be applicable to your situation.  Our goal is to provide good information about barn doors.  We know doors well and are sharing them with you so to improve your experience.

We will tell you about things like ALL Tennessee Barn Doors include “quiet track”. We add a track to the bottom door groove that eliminates the “rubbing sound” other doors have.  This makes a huge difference.  We also stick with our two hardware suppliers and have been with them for over 9 years.  Why, because it works and we trust their quality.  We have replaced other cheaper hardware and we will not take that chance with our quality.

Besides providing information about barn doors, we also work closely with some local builders.  They are excellent builders and if you would like to work with them see the attached links.  http://carbineandassociates.com/   https://gregghomebuilding.com/
