George and Jeff are our design engineers, and they're here to help you. If you're a builder, architect or professional remodeler, you want to get to know these design consultants.
With engineering degrees and years of experience in the building industry, they can analyze your plans and blueprints, suggest appealing and creative designs, and recommend appropriate beams and accessories. They can also provide you with sales tools to win new business and assist you with quotes.
Knowledgeable, creative, detail-oriented, geniuses at technical stuff -- but we'd better stop, we're embarrassing them. Just call and ask for George or Jeff.
Featured Products: Big Beam & Corbel Brand new to our collection: a massive Timber faux beam measuring a full 12 inches wide, 15 inches high and 19 feet long. That's one big beam.
And at about 10 by 14 by 21 inches, the matching corbel is a heavyweight in its own right.
Both are in stock and ready for quick shipment (items BD-38, CB-38).
Project of the Month
Speaking of Timber faux beams, Steve B of Rosedale, California, sent this photo of the 8x10 and 8x5 beams he installed in his home.
"All my contractor friends were so impressed," Steve writes, "and all say these beams look better than the real wood beam installations they have done in the past." We've sent Steve a check for $100 to thank him for sharing his project with us.
We'd love to see your project! Please send us a good-quality photo and brief description, and we'll send you a $100 check if we include it on our Testimonials or Portfolio page.
