Dakota Barn TinBecause they are salvaged from Midwest barn roofs and machine sheds, each individual piece you receive comes with its own unique characteristics. Most will have small holes or warps from where they were originally fastened, some will have brand marks from the original steel manufacturers. They have an interesting range of coloring, including metallic grey, rust orange, light brown, and even a yellowish hue. Add contrast, character and depth to any ceiling or space. Feel good knowing our reclaiming process saves energy and keeps materials out of recycling centers and landfills.
Orders will be a mix of majority rust, majority galvanized and partial rust. Our most popular style, random mix is recommended for large projects. It is not recommended for small projects due to the large variation between pieces.
Premium Partial Rust
This tin is the best we find. Each piece is a nice mix of rust and galvanized that can only be created from natural weathering. It is also flatter with less warping. Recommended for smaller applications such as door inserts, statement wall, or art and craft projects.
Colorado Rustic SteelAfter receiving customer feedback about the need for a more consistent, yet still rustic feel free of nail holes or warps, Dakota Tin introduced the Colorado Rustic Steel™ collection which features three different "faux" styles of corrugated, metal steel, each with unique color and texture patterns. Create a mountain retreat, ranch or southwestern-style look in your home or commercial space by applying corrugate to indoor and outdoor rooms, walls, ceilings or home decor and furniture.
Pre-rusted and created with an all-natural, accelerated rust treatment. Because the solution is spray applied, rust is more evenly distributed, the result is a more even coat of copper rust color, but still with small variations of blue/grey that you’d get from the antique galvanized style.
We start the rusting process, but if you'd get your panels and would still like more rust, learn how to increase the amount of rust here.
We recommend sealing this style with a clear coat, as the rust finish can rub off.
Antiqued steel, dark grey look, weathered, flat texture. NO RUST or color variation. Finish wears with time (can produce white rust with exposure to moisture), will continue to age with exposure and may scratch.
We recommend sealing this style with a clear coat for high-wear areas or where oils can get splattered, since it has a more porous surface.
