Shed sliding door hardware

by John
(Virginia Beach, VA)

I am building a 12' x 12' storage shed with a door opening 5'w x 7'h and would like to install a barn style sliding door.

Where is the best place to find some sturdy hardware for a sliding wooden door at a reasonable price? The only quality sliding door hardware I have been able to find is extremely expensive.

I would like a quality exterior use product that can stand the test of time since the shed that I am building is of very good quality and construction. Most would probably say overbuilt.

Any recommendations or feedback you could offer would be appreciated.

Excellent feedback, thanks! I went to Southern Supply (farm & feed type store) and they had the perfect hardware at 1/5 the price. It is sturdy, functional and attractive. I installed it and it works (and looks great) on my home made wooden doors.

Sliding Barn Door hardware
by: Anonymous

Hi John,

When I re-did an old barn years back, I bought some sliding barn door hardware at a lumber supply company called Furrows. I don't believe they are around anymore, but check out tractor supply if you have one or even quality farm and fleet. They usually have everything farmers need to fix up their barns.
