Barn Wood Facts

Wood naturally expands and contracts throughout the seasons due to changes in temperature and humidity. Spanned over decades, this process makes barnwood denser (typically 40 points on the Janka hardness scale) than its virgin counterpart. Denser wood is less prone to warping, splitting and cracking, making barnwood a stable and long-lasting choice for almost any application.

Wood oxidizes over time, resulting in a desirable grey weathered look. Barnwood that has been in constant contact with the elements also develops a subtle surface texture, adding warmth and character. This hallmark of authentic barnwood is among the more difficult to replicate.

Nails, bolts, chains or any piece of metal that touched or penetrated the wood will leave behind mineral stains that infuse the surrounding grain and create the distinctive, streaked barnwood look that can’t be manufactured
