Barn Doors – How to Select the Right Barn Doors
In our experience, the quality and ease of installation varies widely from one manufacturer to the next.

Barn doors are available from many suppliers and can be made from composites or real wood. They are typically all 84″ high and require additional wall height of up to 10″ to accommodate the rail hardware that the doors are suspended from. Most manufacturers recommend at least 2′ overlap on each side of the barn door ie. a 36″ door fits a 32″ opening. Some hardware systems only require as little as 4″ for situations like in finished basements where ceiling height (and wall height) can be limited. In our experience, the quality and ease of installation varies widely from one manufacturer to the next. For this reason we have decided to use Bill Brown Woodworking and Builders Supply as our preferred manufacturer for barn doors. There are 3 reasons for this:

This company uses real wood; poplar for paint grade applications and clear pine for when a client wants to stain their doors.
They will make a door to the exact size we need. This comes in especially handy with reduced height situations.

Their pricing to be competitive and their quality is better than most large scale manufacturers. A 36″ wide barn door including all hardware is less than $1000 – we quote at time of purchase.

When finishing basements we are often asked to install fireplaces… our customers are concerned that their newly finished living space will not be warm enough to achieve the comfort level they want.

I was extremely pleased with Mintcon’s recent renovation of my basement. I provided some inspiration photos and the end... result was very consistent with my expectations. My vision included a feature wall with linear fireplace and mantel, shelves on both sides of the fireplace, and a dog niche under the stairs. In addition, a 2 piece bathroom was constructed. Scott and his team were professional and took good care to minimize dust and debris by using dust extractors on their power tools. Scott communicated continually throughout the process to keep me informed of their timing, supply chain challenges and any issues that arose. I would definitely recommend Mint-con and would not hesitate to recommend them or use them more

I contracted Scott (Mintcon) to take care of installing some fixtures in my new home which entailed some challenging... heights, as well as electrical, drywall and painting work. Scott and his team did an excellent job on all of the work and they were meticulous in their attention to detail. They ensured I was completely satisfied and kept my home clean and organized throughout the duration of the work. They are very customer-service oriented, pleasant and professional. I have recommended Scott to other friends already and will contract him again in the future for any additional work I more
