My wife and I purchased our home 21 years ago. The bedroom had a cathedral ceiling and when the home was new, the seam looked good. However, as time has aged the house, the seam became increasingly difficult to keep intact. It has been repaired many times and due to the slight shifting of the ceiling, due to heat and cold, the crack would always come back over time.
My wife and I got tired of looking at the crack, so we talked about a beam. I said, I could build a beam in several pieces and mount it. Because of the weight involved, the amount of work involved, I kept putting it off. My wife said that maybe we could buy a beam on line and keep it simple.
Taking her advice, I looked on line and found fauxwoodbeams.com. I consulted with the company and requested a sample. Because our modest size room was longer than the maximum beam manufactured by 8 inches, I requested a sample about 9 inches. Fauxwoodbeams.com was able to send me the size piece requested with the premise, that if I liked the contour, I would buy the 16 foot beam and join the two together, thus making one long beam. Their typical length of sample was around 6 inches. Fauxwoodbeams.com was very accommodating.
As it worked out, the sample came and my wife loved the style and quality. I started the ordering process. Sure, the shipping was expensive, but worth it. It came in one long piece and undamaged.
In the garage, I mounted the beam on saw horses and supported the entire length underneath. I put 4 locating pins in one end, and made a guide so that I could push both ends together to come up square, parallel and perpendicular. After the initial fit, I glued the two pieces together and let it cure. Afterwards, I used an automotive "Bondo" material and filled in the part lines. I sanded and primed, and repeated as necessary. I had already trimmed to the proper length, less 1/8 of an inch.
Now the trick was, how to get it into the bedroom, located on the second floor. In the meantime, I installed the mounting board which was comprised of several 2" X 3" pine boards running down the cathedral ceiling. The 2 X 3 fit perfectly inside the beam. I made a support that would hold the beam in place while my wife, son and myself would position the beam close to the ceiling. We managed to bring the beam through a bathroom window. This bathroom was attached to the opposite end of the bedroom, so we were able to get the beam up on a roof and into the window. Being careful not to bend the beam, we got the beam into the room. I got the beam into position and secured it with glue that I purchased from fauxwoodbeams.com and used a power nailer which inserted nails into the 2 X 3 boards.
Now it was up, installed and looked beautiful. All that remained to be done was to fill the nail holes, caulk the edges and have the room painted. My wife could not have been happier. One beam was all it took in my case. In addition to hiding the crack, the beam now added architectural interest to the room.
"Mission accomplished" and now there are no more cracks in the cathedral ceiling joint.
I found the beams to be very easy to install and work with. they were very light and could easily be installed be 1-2 people. No issues at all! I cut the ends to a 45 degree point and joined in the center to create uniformity.
Delivery time was much less than expected. The product was excellent quality and easy to work with though it took time.
These Faux beams blow away real wood beams or constructing a couffered ceiling out of dry wall and moulding. We installed this ceiling in ONE day. We have 2 neighbors who constructed couffered ceilings the old fashioned way. One did it himself and it took over one month to complete. The other contracted someone to construct it and it cost FIVE times as much! These faux beams were cost effective and added unbelieveable character to our basement. Yes, those are pictures of a basement!
