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!
I just wanted to share pictures of my finished project. They went in easy and we love them in our office.
The mantle that I bought from you guys worked out wonderfully. Very good alternative to an expensive real wood beam, that is if you can find a rustic one anyway. The stain applied easily and turned out amazing, you can't tell it's fake! Thanks, and I will by buying again.
I ordered Timber beams from you a couple weeks back and installed them a few days ago. I recall seeing an advertisement to send in pictures and if you use them on your website, I could receive a $100.
Here they are! Fast shipment and easy installation. They look awesome!
Please consider posting these pictures on your web site.
My wife and I, both of which are in our sixties, stained and installed the beams on our 12' high ceiling. We used a drywall lift so we did not even have to carry these lightweight beams up the ladder. This also reduced the possibility of us dropping or cracking a beam. We have received many compliments about the beams. The only time I tell people they are faux beams is when they ask how we got them up on the ceiling.
Just a note of thanks for a great product! We are still getting raves from the neighbors on the Chamfered Outlookers we installed over our garage as a custom-looking arbor. Your product was a snap to install, and of perfect quality. And, they really do look like real wood — without the weight! That was a real plus when handling these nine feet above the ground. When our contractor painted our house after the installation, he couldn't believe they weren't really wood! From ordering, delivery, to installation, your company was great to work with!
Thank you for your wonderful product. We couldn't wait to show you the finished product. The beams made the room come together perfectly.
We’d like to thank you for the great speed at which you helped resolve the cross border issues in getting your product into Canada for us recently. We just recently completed our installation and it looks fantastic. Even while I installed them, “eye to beam” they looked real, and I knew they were not. We'll recommend to our friends to consider your products for their homes (especially with the favourable Canadian Dollar at the moment!) We've attached a couple pictures of the finished room.
The biggest attraction was having a single light beam to span a 16' 6" span 14 feet off the floor. The installation was simple for 2 people and it was easy to sand the edges to make the piece fit up the sides of the wall. I can't image the weight and difficulty of installing a real wood beam - plus I never had to move the pool table!
Thank you for the service!
I will watch you on HGTV and I should send you photos of my faux beams... They are wow!
I have a real post and beam home an needed to add the post and beam look to and addition reg. frame construction. The beams have been stained with 3 shodes to match my 200 year old beams... No one can tell the old from the new...
Thank you for a great product.
Oh my gosh. Can I tell you how much the Executive Producer at HGTV loves your product... She felt that it really added value to the "Curb Appeal" show, and that it provided great tips for our viewers. I've been in Florida this week shooting two more episodes. So I apologize for my delay in getting back to you.
I know that your episode is currently being edited by HGTV. The new season premiers sometime early Spring, 2008.
Thanks again for your help!
We have used these beams in 3 new homes, they look like real wood beams. Installation is simple and one person can insall alone.
Fantastic product, they look like real beams. I'm not a professional installer, my wife & I did it. It gave a warm look to my living room , dining room, entrance & bar area. Next step it's going to be the kitchen. Thank you.
No one believes my last job beams are faux. Everyone has to reach up and tap on them.
I was 60 years old when I installed approximately 200 feet of the Walnut Timber Beams (BD-20A & BD-20B) in my ceiling. The ceiling ranged from 10 feet to 22 feet high. Working off of a scaffold and following the included directions I was able to complete the installation in two days. I used only the tools I had including a table saw, circular saw, reciprocal saw and knives. No special tools were needed. It was easy! Anyone with a background in building anything can do this!
Most important - we have had a multitude of guests in our home and not a single one guessed that the beams were made of foam. Our subcontractor even brings prospective clients to our home! We even held a three foot piece within 3-4 feet of them and no one guessed! This stuff is awesome!
I just wanted to compliment the team members of yours, they were a wonderful help to me. I know in today's world finding excellent customer service is very rare, I had the pleasure of working with your customer service team to place an order for some beams and she was OUTSTANDING! The follow up was great and they were able to answer all my questions and concerns. They even found the beams I needed that were on back order as she knew I was trying to get my room done for Christmas and she was so happy and excited for me!
Wanted to install a mantle on my bare brick fireplace, but mantles are expensive! Then I thought I'd just buy two wood corbels, and make my own... but they're expensive, too! Google led me to fauxwoodbeams.com, and I ended up with a gorgeous (in my opinion) fireplace mantle at a very low price! Extremely easy to stain and install, and no one can believe the corbels aren't real wood. Just have to fix my screw holes, did a bad job puttying.
Great to hear from you today. I can't stress enough how impressed I am with your involvement in our order. It sure makes me feel confident that I'm dealing with a quality company that doesn't treat you like some anonymous number in their system.
The product you offer is not only unique and full of character, it appears so close to real with it's color and quality I find myself visually tricking friends that stop by.
Thanks for standing behind your company and it's products.
