Why does everyone seem to choose red to color their barn? Well, choosing red is in line with a long tradition that some historians have traced back to the first American settlers while others bring it all the way back to the origins of our solar system. The theories about the establishment of the color red vary from economic reasons, red being the cheapest paint, to functional reasons, red paint being made from rust which wards off fungus and rot, and finally, to folk tales, such as stories of early farmers who mixed blood into their wood sealant to color it.  Keeping in line with the tradition, barn red is still one of the most popular colors for metal instant barns.
