To make all of our Chalet Ceiling Beams, we start with actual wood beams. This beam has all of the natural characteristics and imperfections found in wood. This includes such things as natural wood grains, knots, and splits. We make a mold of a real wood beam, so what you get is an exact replica. First we decoratively router the edges. We then lightly sand blast the beam to raise the grain.
I had this beam put up to cover a crack that was badly repaired. It covers that mess and looks like it has always been there. The color I chose matches perfectly with my cabinets too. I am very pleased with the results!!
They accomplished exactly what we were looking for(Nov 29, 2010)
These beams made our patio roof look great compared to what we started with. We covered some kind of partical board ceiling with Hardy Board and then used your beams to give it a finished quality look
Well made, look great, small difficulty(Dec 23, 2008)
The beams look very authentic, and surprisingly durable during installation, although they could have been manufactured with a wider glue surface to make adherence easier. Also darker than the Ipswich pine pictured; glad I didn't stain other woodwork till these arrived.
