The casual charm of rough sawn beams brings a relaxed touch to your home's interior or exterior. These straight-cut beams appear to have just come out of an Old World saw mill. We begin the process with an actual sawn wood beam. This beam still carries all of the saw and tooling marks. The next step is to make a high-quality mold out of that rough-sawn beam. The resulting faux wood ceiling beam is a perfect copy of all of the characteristics of the real wood, for an incredibly realistic appearance. You won't be able to tell the difference until you pick it up!

Love it!(Jan 23, 2012)
I love the beams, which I installed alone using 2x4 "Tees" attached to ladders for stability. I am a great grandmother and will be 70 this year so if I can do it anyone can install the beams. It gives my living room the cozy feeling that I was striving for. Thank you for a wonderful product. I will e-mail before & after photos.

Great product!(Apr 14, 2009)
My master bedroom has a 10 ft vaulted ceiling where the drywall finishing work was bad. So, I decided to cover up the poorly done drywall. I installed tongue and groove pine, with a coat of "natural stain" followed by a coat of "English oak." I then installed one of the larger rough sawn beams over the seam where the vault meets the flat part if the ceiling, a seam that was always cracking. I used a faux bracket to cover up a splice on a 21 ft run. Gaps between the tongue and groove sections were then covered with smaller beams. The room is not quite finished yet. Every one of my beams required compound miter joints which I did with a cordless circular saw. The material is easy to work with. Final fit was made after cutting using a file to get each joint just right. I hung all of the beams by myself, too. Even the larger sized 16 foot length. Great product! I am getting lots of compliments. :)
Easy to stain, easy to install, customer loves(Jan 4, 2009)
I installed the rough sawn 6 x 8 faux wood beams in a house a month or two ago. It was as easy as getting the solid stain from Ben. Moore and painting. Installing 2x4 in the pattern desired and attaching the beams to the 2 x 4 with glue and screws the whole project took half a day and looked awesome. And I can sleep at night knowing they hardly weigh anything, and won't add additional weight like real wood beams do.

Honestly happier than I expected, worked perfectly.(Dec 17, 2008)
I had a ceiling problem caused by snow weight that needed continual repair over the years. The beams fixed the problem, look fantastic and have amazed friends with their "look". I have saved a small piece of the leftover product to show people what it looks and feels like.

Transformed the room!(Dec 7, 2008)
We recently bought a "fixer upper" in College Station and used the beams on the vaulted ceilings. It was unbelievable how the room was transformed. The beams were so easy to put up, even with 25 foot ceilings, my wife and I put them up in a weekend. I would recommend all the faux products!!

Final Product Looked Great(Nov 5, 2008)
We built a custom wine cellar in an unfinished basement and needed to conceal the existing steel I-beam. The concealment needed to look appropriate for the high end space. The rough sawn beams had the right look and an interior deep enough to fit over the steel. We used one to cover the steel and a second one was added for symmetry. We had them faux finished on-site to match the custom flooring made out of barrels from the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, Ireland. It would be nice if they came longer than 10' since we had to splice ours to get the needed distance. Also, when they were nested together for shipping they arrived badly damaged. But when the replacement order was packaged separately, they arrived in perfect condition. The client is thrilled with the final result and most who have seen them don't realize they're faux unless they're told otherwise. We would definitely use them on future projects.
