Barn Siding
« on: August 06, 2006, 07:51:43 PM »
My cousin has this barn that he wants to take down, he wants to use some of the old siding down in his basement, but someone told him that he needs to have the wood cleaned before he can use it indoors... they said it had something to do with birds. Can anyone enlighten me please... cuz frankly I was thinking about doing the same thing :)?

While he may not have to have it cleaned, old bird droppings can be very hazardous to your health.
Wear a good mask if there are any droppings on it while removing it, and I would suggest spraying it down and then letting it dry a bit before bringing it inside IF there are droppings on it.

My parents did that a few years ago.  They had the boards sand blasted lightly before putting them in.  It cleaned them up nicely without removing the grey colour.

Might want stick it in a kiln for a while, too, to kill all the critters hiding in that old barn siding.
I used to think I could fix DanG near anything...now I know I can...or I think I can...or maybe I can?
