Step 4: Mounting the board

After you have marked the stud locations and checked them twice, you can confidently mount the backer board!

Use a level to ensure that the backer board is as straight as possible. Attach one end of the board using wood screws, re-check the level, and then attach the remaining screws.

If you’d like to hide the screws, cover them with wood filler and then touch up the marks with paint. Though not key to install a barn door, this detail work will make the finished product look more professional.

Step 8: Maintain your barn door

If you occasionally clean your barn door, you will keep it looking nice for years to come!

Using a diluted soap solution and a sponge, gently wipe the areas that get touched the most. This should keep grubby fingers from leaving a mark! Thoroughly dry the door to prevent moisture related damage and drip marks.
