Barn Board Real Wood Beams
Description of Barn Board Real Wood Beams
Made from virgin wood, these barn beams match the color, texture and character of real barn wood as closely as possible. A perfect re-creation of vintage reclaimed beams that look to be 150 years old, these beams are indistinguishable from the real thing.
Their ultra-realistic look is captured from a proprietary wood treatment process, which is a mineral-based reactive stain. When the beam dries after this treatment, the wood becomes a beautiful, weathered color. Thanks to this carefully crafted faux finish, the beams not only look like reclaimed beams from the olden days, but they act like them, too. When they get wet, they darken. When they dry, they lighten in color, just like real wood.
The process these beams are made from is also sustainable and environmentally sound. The second-growth cedar they are made of is a renewable resource, and the areas they are cut from are always replanted. The benefit of this kind of virgin wood is that it is much less prone to cracking, warping, twisting and checking.
The beams are consistent in size, so covering existing structural elements is easier – the measurements will always be the same from one beam to the next. The other benefit of these beams is that they are offered in consistently long lengths, which is hard to come by with real reclaimed timber that is highly in demand. Planning and building trusses is also easier to accomplish with these beams, thanks to the consistency of sizes we offer.
Offered in many colors, these beams are lightweight and easy to install. They are everything barn wood is, and more.
Note: Due to its authenticity, lengths of 15.5 feet and over requires a scarf joint. Any beam with a width or height larger than 10” will have a seam. This seam could be evident when looking at the beam.

The color of the beams delivered is so far off from the color on the website that I had to have a painter re stain the beams, which was very costly. I spoke to a representative prior to ordering and was not informed that I could get a sample prior to ordering. Nevertheless, the color shown on the website and the actual color of the beams delivered were so different that I can only assume that there was a mistake in color at production. I have been in touch with the service professionals and I am waiting for some type of accommodation. However, the response time has been extremely slow, making what could have been an incredibly pleasant experience into a very frustrating experience and leaving me (an industry professional) with the feeling that once the sale is made there is little care for the customer.
That being said, the beams are beautiful but I would never again order without first seeing a sample.
Everything about the product is great.. My only complaint would be the time it takes to get products from you.. even small accessories like beam straps take Forever...
As you can see in the picture this mantel is not only beautiful but practical. Our electrician hid the television wires inside of it. We love it!
We absolutely love our new mantel. It is the piece that we searched and searched for. We wanted a barn board beam look and no one had exactly what we wanted until my husband stumbled upon your website. From the samples that we ordered to the awesome customer service rep that we worked with to the ordering process to the actual receipt and install of our mantel - everything was perfect. I would highly recommend your company and won’t hesitate to order from you again! I hope you post our testimonial!
