Julio from Cape Coral, FL sent in this video to show how quick and easy a faux beam installation can be.
These beams are very well engineered and assembled. I took my time performing all the measurements and cuts. Although I ran into a few screws while making the cuts to the arched beam, I was amazed at how well hidden the screw heads were. I had opted for the unstained version so I could customize the color. The staining process was easy and they turned out great. I previously purchased some discontinued beams on clearance with a more rustic grain. I matched the base coat of the arched beams to cover the stain on the clearance beams so the stain color would match. It worked like a champ. I followed the installation instructions provided by FauxWoodBeams, and everything came out great!
I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous job your guys did on our beam order! They arrived on time and in perfect condition. We were able to faux finish these and have started installing them this morning. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you. It is not very often that a company represents itself so professionally. I can not thank you enough for your great customer service!
We were seeking a casual, relaxed retreat. The [reclaimed] beams helped keep the home from feeling “brand new”. We furnished the home with reclaimed woods, found antiques. The beams helped tie the structure in with the décor and furnishings. We wanted to keep the material consistent and not introduce something else. In addition, wrapping the steel support beams tied the beamed ceiling detail in and brought the reclaimed beams ‘down’ since it is such a large two story space.
Very easy! The ordering process and installation instructions was easier than anticipated. We have already spec’d the beams for other upcoming projects.
Enjoy the holidays and thanks for the trade courtesies and amazing customer service. You are on the top of the list of favorite vendors. Please forward this to your supervisor(s). The level of professionalism from Faux Wood Beams has raised the bar considerably!!!
I just installed some light fixtures on the stairwell, and I just finished my first concrete countertop for the kitchen island. The faux panels have been a big hit, I used them for our stairwell in the entry way going down to the basement. I also used them to cover the island in the kitchen after joining an extra base cabinet.
It is strikingly different looking now. I think it turned out nice (we are very happy with it). I will also post a positive review online - thank you for your help and follow thru.
What can I say...
You have been an amazing continual support to our team. This episode marks the beginning of it all! We could not do what we do without the support and dedication of generous people like you!!
I thought you might like to see the pictures of my house after the installation of the faux beams you designed for my living room, dining and kitchen areas. As you can see, the beams are FANTASTIC! The beams look as if they were put in when the house was built and they really warm up the rooms. With the tall ceilings I have, it felt a bit cavernous in my living room especially, but now it fells warm and truly gives that rustic farmhouse feel to the room that I wanted. I can’t say enough good things about how it looks now. Everyone who has come over to see them thinks they are real wood beams and ask me how much the “reclaimed lumber” cost. They are shocked when I tell them the beams are faux.
My contractor did a great job installing them—the trim carpenter that put these up said the video on the web site really helped him get it all together and that is was pretty easy to follow the video and the design you sent to put them up. Though I had to wait on the schedule because of my vacation and other jobs the contractor had going, once they started installation it went very smooth and they actually took less time than they thought. Thank you very much for all the help you gave me. My contractor is really excited about your product—he took the samples I ordered originally to select the beam style because he thinks some of his other customers doing remodels would be interested in this given the cost and ease of installation. Maybe you will get some more jobs, who knows.
Again, my thanks for your professionalism and quality design!
Hi! Love your product and wanted to share an installation photo with you. Thanks!
We are in a new sub-division where every house has stark white plastic exterior columns. Wondering what would be cost effective and aesthetically pleasing as a DIY solution, we stumbled across FauxWoodBeams.com. There was only one testimonial photo on the website showing exterior columns, so we were hesitant at first.
The 4 sided beam product we selected as easy to cut with a hand saw; we chose a long beam and cut it in half. I was able to use a pneumatic finishing nailer to attach the 4th side in place while the glue dried. A bit of brown caulking made the seam invisible.
The neighbors have been coming up to the house to ask how we did it. Even caught someone taking pictures the other day. Knowing also that these columns will withstand a Canadian winter is fantastic!
We are very pleased with the outcome.
I could not be happier with how awesome these beams look! They look and feel like real wood, but at a fraction of the weight. The look I wanted to achieve was done at a very affordable price without a single modification to the structure or trusses.
We loved them so much we also did some floating beams across our master bedroom tray ceiling! THANKS!!!
Our team here really likes your product! Here are some photos we just took of a home in Sylvan Lake, Michigan that has Faux Wood Beams on the ceilings throughout the home.
I wanted to share these photos to show the impressive change that faux wood products made in our house. We utilized an 8 foot fireplace beam supported by faux corbels as a replacement for a heavy particle board shelf below the new arches and railing, which open to a former bedroom and current breakfast room. I ran downlights and an uplight in the mantel, as well as hid the still quite audible doorbell in this wide beam. We used a tongue and groove faux panel and corbels for the interior roof, which support well the real concrete tiles and hanging lanterns. On the ceiling I used four BD-25 Timber beams having cut one in half. Down the hall, we covered a sheetrocked wooden beam with a piece of a woodland beam (below the faux grapes) to separate living from family rooms. Next winter, we have unique additional plans to finish the room with other faux products, and we will send those photos upon completion. All-in-all, the faux wood products are quite easy to use, if a lay person like myself could create with them. I have received numerous compliments upon this project, but would not have been able to pull it off without the use of a quality product. My living room is quite an eye opener now, a far cry from the plain 22 foot wall and white ceiling that greeted us before.
I have attached a few pictures of my finished project using "Woodland" faux beams. I hope you can use one of them on your website. Thanks for a great product. The look is fantastic, and actually quite amazing!
Hello – I would like to show you my project. My husband and I did the finish work in our master bedroom addition. When it came to time to do the beams, it was so nice to be able to do the installation with just the two of us. The beams were easy to cut and amazingly light weight. The large center beam went over an exisiting prelam roof rafter, descizing it perfectly. My contractor and electrician couldn’t believe the beams were not real wood. We are so pleased with the way they turned out. We plan to use them again in other parts of the house.
Here are pictures of your product installed in a home in Granite Bay, CA. They consist of exterior lintels over the windows and french doors. The interior beams are raised grain beams. They look great!
