Thank you! The mantle looks awesome and was easy to install.
We bought an older house in the beginning of this year. We fixed up everything, and are very happy with it. But the biggest bang for our buck came from FauxWoodBeams.com. It made our living room look and feel like a fancy old house.
Our living room looked terrible when we bought the house. It had one 4”x10” beam sticking out under a horribly sheet rocked ceiling. No way was it going to stay that way! We didn’t want to lose any height in the room, so just lowering the ceiling was not an option. We were thinking of accentuating instead of hiding. This is how we came up with the idea of two polyurethane beams. One to hide the ugly beam and one to balance out the room. To create a more rustic look, we installed rough sawn spruce.
While looking for the beams on the Internet, I found that the FauxWoodBeams.com was the most user friendly website. It offered many choices, in a concise way that was easy to navigate. The prices were very competitive; you were the number one choice.
The beams arrived quickly, and very well packaged. No damage. After looking at the installation videos on your website, it was very easy and short work. It was easier and quicker to put the beams up than it was the spruce ceiling. The weight of the beams was so little and the sawing so easy that it was no work at all. We went from an interesting spruce ceiling to a beautiful and impressive spruce ceiling in a matter of 2 hours witout any hard work!
So for less money than any other project in the house, we have a beautiful living room that every one complements us on.
"We can't believe how realistic these beams look in our home. If I hadn't lifted them up and helped with the easy install, then there is no way I would believe they were not real wood."
After coming back to the USA after my first trip to England I realized how young our homes were. I didn't think I could capture that old world spirit in my home until I found this product. The rustic beams and corbels allowed me to bring a historical look to my interior. You don't have to be a carpenter to install this product. In an afternoon, I was done. What a difference!
"We installed these beams in our construction project and could not be more pleased with the service from Faux Wood Beams and the product they delivered. We strongly feel that the extra decorator detail of the beams were key in the sale."
I was shocked to see how sturdy the beam was. I had to piece 2 beams together because of the length of the room. It went up fine. I am very pleased and would highly recommend your product.
Thanks for your help.
We just received the samples... Wow, how do you get them to look so real? You were right, the Rustic style beam was the way to go.
Thanks for that suggestion. Your customer service department was very helpful. Anyway, w e just placed our order on line.
Can't wait to get them installed. Thanks again for all your help.
It's Derek from Southern California. We are tremendously happy with the product we ordered from you. The beams look great! I just put in another order for some extra corbels to go under our kitchen counter bar.
Wow. When my first order of beams arrived I was amazed at how easy they were to put up. I knew they'd be light and much less work than real wood but I was amazed at how fast my customer's place, an old Victorian, became the bed and breakfast he wanted. No sanding, sealing, heavy lifting or waiting. We used your stuff throughout the entire place — faux walnut beams inside, faux corbels outside and faux scrolled out lookers to replace the old ones. My customer thinks I am a rock star!
I Purchased beams in 2005 and loved them... We are now building new home (and have ordered more).
Prior to finding your Web site, my local Home Improvement Center offered me NO help! Thank GOD for a smart brother in law who gave me your site.
I spent around $10,000 on your Timber Beams in our new home this past year, and everyone who see's them is just blown away!!! First I tell them that they were from an old french castle and that they weigh hundreds of pounds and that it took 8 men and a hoist to get them in place. And they believe it! Then I tell them what they really are and they can't believe it!!!
Thank-you. The beams are absolutely beautiful. I could not be more pleased.
Received my order and timbers are up. They look great! Thanks for all your help and supplying such a realistic looking product, they fooled all my neighbors.
We had purchased the faux ceiling beams and LOVE THEM... When we tell people that they are not real they have to touch them and are amazed... So we are now doing the outside of the house and I wanted to jazz up the front of the old farm house up and thought this would be the perfect way and something that wouldn't take as long as using the real thing.
Very good web site. Great product descriptions and measurements. Customer service answered right away and had a quick an knowledgeable answer. Impressed me!
Congratulations Faux Wood Beams on your HGTV appearance!
We are so very pleased with our Faux Wood Beams! Should you need customer testimonials we'd be willing to share our story and Faux Wood Beams installation.
Our builder and all the subs who have been working on our custom home are amazed at how real the beams look and the ease of installation. I am so grateful that I discovered you on-line because the prices we had been quoted for real wood beams, installed on a 16 ft. high ceiling, prohibited us having the room we wanted. Thank you for being there and making our beam purchase and installation so easy!
