 front sliding doors for morton pole barn

We are building a 36'x12'x56' Morton pole barn and I like the diamond M sliding doors which have a crossbuck on the bottom, and window with grid in the top (like you see on horse barns). They want $3500 for a pair (12' tall, each 7'wide). Any other options to get the same look for under $2k?? I see Raynor overhead doors come with that look, but very pricy also.

 front sliding doors for morton pole barn

Chris; Sliding doors have lots of negatives compared to an overhead. Number one is the wind. First unless you use a lower track to hold the bottom of the door against the shed both while open or closed the wind loves to swing and bang them around. Second, if you are in snow country they can be a problem to slide open when snow and ice build up along the building where the door slides. Third, if you plan to insulate the building it's pretty hard to get much of a seal between the door frame and the doors when they are closed and still have enough clearance for them to slide freely along the side of the building. I've never had any doors with the design you speak of, but a common sliding door track, track cover, rollers and lower track and the door material it's self even with the design you like don't seem like should cost that much. If you can make an overhead door work it will eliminate 99% of the problems of a sliding door. Frank.

That's an obsurd price. Sounds like someone is marking it up 2-3 times over cost.

I built a pole barn for a customer. I flipped out when I found out through a local door supplier to the barn supplier, that the barn supplier marked up the door I was using $500 or 100% for doing nothing more than making a phone call to the door supplier---the barn supplier din't stock, handle or even touch the door---it was delivered directly from door supplier and installed by them. When I asked the barn supplier for a discount he had the ba___s to tell me they don't make but a "few bucks" on the door, so no discount!

You should be able to get a extremly high quality, Fiberglas, insulated overhead door for that much including appliques that make it look like a barn door like you want---including installation. It will look great, seal well, last for years and won't bang around in the wind. AND you can use an overhead door opener. If you don't like the segmented or panel-type OHD, consider a commercial roll-up door that winds up over the door opening rather than coming back and over the floor area.

 front sliding doors for morton pole barn

I'm currently getting a 32' x 48' x 14'6" tall pole building built. Am going with overhead doors 13'x12' and 10'x12' at the gable end. I have sliding doors on another building (25'x 45') and they can be a pain as was said.

A sliding door takes slightly less vertical height for the same opening size but the extra height is not that expensive. I went with a 13' tall door to clear for a 5th wheel, if one happens in my life someday.

I agree that the price you quoted seems really high for the sliders.

I don't know if they're common elsewhere, but up here we have a bottom track system that is great for dealing with snow and ice in regards to sliding doors.

It is sort of like a piece of eaves trough that that mounts to the bottom of the wall, except the opening is lined down both sides with a sort of strip of bristles like a long thin broom head. The two strips, one front and one on back meet in the middle in a sort of peak roof style, when the door is opened the bristles hold the door from flapping in the wind, and when the door is closed the bristles form a sort of roof to keep a space open for the door to open into.

They work quite well at keeping the door functioning in winter.

If clearance is an issue you may want to look at overhead bifold door mechanisms, or if you are a little handy they're quite simple to make yourself.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the info. I need to look at the Raynor prices for overhead doors. I like that barn look, so will see what can be done. I would like an area to play basketball, and the overhead door would hurt that idea. I was going to eliminate a truss in one of the 8' bays to create a vaulted area as wide as the barn, and 16' long, at one end, for basketball. I could always put the overhead door on the side of the barn, and then see about how to design the front (gable) to make it look "barn-like". The other issue is whether I should put concrete slab in right away, or wait a year for the fill to settle.
