Installing can be done with two people and a ladder when the BQ is hung and ground level or 6 feet above. For those hung at a higher distance, a bucket truck or scaffolding is recommended. See our short video and instructions below.
How to Install a Barn Quilt.
Sometimes a picture's worth a thousand words. So we did a "fast recording" of a barn quilt installation to show you how easy peasey it is. The instructions are below.
INSTALLATION The Chatt Hills Barn Quilt committee will coordinate the installation of barn quilts on its trails. For installations on taller structures, the committee will work with the City to obtain an installation contractor. For individuals desiring to do their own installations, the following advice is provided:
Select the appropriate equipment:
For barn quilt sizes up to 4x4, installations may be done with a ladder
For larger barn quilts, a scissor lift or bucket truck may be needed.
Select the appropriate fasteners:
On smooth surfaces, the barn quilt may be installed directly to the surface with the recommended exterior screws.
On uneven surfaces such as those that have siding or barn board, wood strips may need to be installed to the surface first with exterior screws, and then the barn quilt would be screwed to the strips. Note: Care should be taken not to “over tighten” the screws, as this will cause the Aluminum Composite Sheet to bend.
The last step is to take a photo of the barn quilt with the host and the barn quilt painter.
