We think that your product is easy to work with and the finished product is amazing.
Heres a dramatic before and after picture of a tall ceiling family room where we installed Faux Wood Beams. Using them on another job now. Love this product!
We ordered beams from you four years ago and want to add a little something to two of them. We love our beams and people marvel all the time that they're not real.
This was the first time we worked with your product, and loved it. The product looks like you could get splinters in your hands when handling them. Our customer loves the job and is very happy with your product.
We thought you might be interested in these pictures since they show a mantle used as a shelf on an entrance alcove wall. We love the look and were amazed at how well the mantle took the stain. Visitors can't quite believe two women installed it, as it looks so like the real thing and appears to weigh a lot. Thanks for a great product!
We are very pleased with the corbels we ordered. The service and quality was excellent.
Here are pictures of our remodel we did last fall using your pre-stained wood beams. I didn't get any before pictures, but it was pretty boring drywall without your beams! They added such a great personal touch to the space. We had several beams left over, so our installer and my husband decided to use them on our high ledges, which now are my favorite touch. Our installer had never used faux beams before, but he quickly figured out a way and I think did a fantastic job - thanks so much for such a beautiful easy way to have the wood beam look.
Everyone has loved loved loved these beams and cannot believe they are faux. I love showing them the sample just to hear the ohh and ahhhs. This is a great product that so realistic its uncanny.. I was skeptical myself but after painting, glazing and sealing I love them..I am a designer and will HIGHLY recommend these to my customers! Keep up the GREAT products
I'm not sure if you are interested but I really like your products. I just wanted to show you what I did with them and to let you know it was pretty easy. I am attaching a copy of the house my husband and I built. You can click on it and move it around to get a closer look. However, I am pretty proud of this since I did most of it myself. I am a 58-year old woman and I never had any experience with carpentry but I have been a hobby seamstress. For this house project I made up some paper patterns and put the patterns on the wood so I would know where to cut and how to put it together. Anyway, I want you to know that all the wood you see on the front of the house if faux wood from your shop. The lace cut fascia board you see, I cut out myself with a jigsaw and router, after my husband showed me how to hold the tools. Never touched them before in my life.
I also designed and cut the Tudor trim you see on the left side of the house. I also cut and put together the shutters you see flanking the windows. All a very fun project and not that difficult. My husband helped me put up the fascia board and the Tudor trim but I managed the shutters myself. My husband was so busy with other projects (mostly installing the electrical) that I had to do something to help if I wanted it to look this way. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute. The weathervane, chimney pots and lawn is in now and all the landscaping so it looks a lot nicer but this was an early photo. We showed everyone that stopped by along the way your product and they were all amazed at how real it looked. No one can tell it isn't wood.
I am a single woman and I needed to know if I could handle the installation. After watching your installation instructions, I know I can! Thanks very much
Your beams made a perfect finishing touch to what could have been a pretty boring roof line in this home. I have attached some photos of the finished product. We stained these unfinished beams and put them through the great room and kitchen areas of the home. Including staining and finishing it took us about 2 days and was done just 4 days before the customers took possession. Nice product and great to work with.
We are writing to express our sincere appreciation for all that you and your company contributed to the Beach family's new home. It impresses us beyond words that in this economy you came on board to make a difference.
The Oxford Rustic Barn Wood panels and the timber planks that were added to the "Tree Fort" room were the perfect finishing touch!
We could not do what we do without the support and dedication of generous people like you. Together, we made the impossible, possible!
Wow! I absolutely love these beams. I did have a carpenter put them up as I didn’t know how to get the angles on the “freestanding” beams. He loved putting them up and what a great product this is!
I know many people just love these and they are completely right!! I want to put them all over my house now. My husband walked in when the carpenter was finished and said that it didn’t even look like our house. The pics don’t do it justice.
Thanks so much for a great product!!!
We installed a timber beam with corbels in our vaulted great room and we are very happy with the results. We used scrap lumber and attached 2 x 6 pieces accross the peak using long wood screws. I held the beam in place and my husband attached the beam to the support lumber. We used 2 beams and connected them in the middle around our ceiling fan. The colored caulk worked great and you can't tell it isn't one solid beam. The corbels installed the same way and were the perfect finishing touch. Everyone that walks in the front door immediately comments on the beam and they never believe us when we tell them I held it up while my husband attached it. An affordable, perfect solution for our large room. Great product!
Your product in comparison to real wood is by far the best out there . Service and knowledge is A+ . Our company has used Faux Wood Beams on other jobs and all the homeowners were extremely pleased with both the look and price . Keep the new product ideas coming , it allows us as builders , the capability to offer much more cost effective design elements for almost half the cost of real lumber and no efforts of up keep down the road for the homeowner
Everyone that walks through our door comments on our timber beams. They look at us in disbelief when we tell them they aren't really wood. They just keep looking up and staring at them! I am a designer and am VERY picky on what I choose to use for products in a home. I personally picked Faux Wood Beams because of the fair price, practicality, but most importantly their GREAT look!! One of my clients saw them, thought they were real, and when they found out they weren't-gasped in disbelief! She said that they had just spent a lot of money on real beams and the reinforcing of their ceiling/rafters to be able to support them.
I can’t wait to find more places to use these faux wood products!
My wife and I purchased our home 21 years ago. The bedroom had a cathedral ceiling and when the home was new, the seam looked good. However, as time has aged the house, the seam became increasingly difficult to keep intact. It has been repaired many times and due to the slight shifting of the ceiling, due to heat and cold, the crack would always come back over time.
My wife and I got tired of looking at the crack, so we talked about a beam. I said, I could build a beam in several pieces and mount it. Because of the weight involved, the amount of work involved, I kept putting it off. My wife said that maybe we could buy a beam on line and keep it simple.
Taking her advice, I looked on line and found fauxwoodbeams.com. I consulted with the company and requested a sample. Because our modest size room was longer than the maximum beam manufactured by 8 inches, I requested a sample about 9 inches. Fauxwoodbeams.com was able to send me the size piece requested with the premise, that if I liked the contour, I would buy the 16 foot beam and join the two together, thus making one long beam. Their typical length of sample was around 6 inches. Fauxwoodbeams.com was very accommodating.
As it worked out, the sample came and my wife loved the style and quality. I started the ordering process. Sure, the shipping was expensive, but worth it. It came in one long piece and undamaged.
In the garage, I mounted the beam on saw horses and supported the entire length underneath. I put 4 locating pins in one end, and made a guide so that I could push both ends together to come up square, parallel and perpendicular. After the initial fit, I glued the two pieces together and let it cure. Afterwards, I used an automotive "Bondo" material and filled in the part lines. I sanded and primed, and repeated as necessary. I had already trimmed to the proper length, less 1/8 of an inch.
Now the trick was, how to get it into the bedroom, located on the second floor. In the meantime, I installed the mounting board which was comprised of several 2" X 3" pine boards running down the cathedral ceiling. The 2 X 3 fit perfectly inside the beam. I made a support that would hold the beam in place while my wife, son and myself would position the beam close to the ceiling. We managed to bring the beam through a bathroom window. This bathroom was attached to the opposite end of the bedroom, so we were able to get the beam up on a roof and into the window. Being careful not to bend the beam, we got the beam into the room. I got the beam into position and secured it with glue that I purchased from fauxwoodbeams.com and used a power nailer which inserted nails into the 2 X 3 boards.
Now it was up, installed and looked beautiful. All that remained to be done was to fill the nail holes, caulk the edges and have the room painted. My wife could not have been happier. One beam was all it took in my case. In addition to hiding the crack, the beam now added architectural interest to the room.
"Mission accomplished" and now there are no more cracks in the cathedral ceiling joint.
The mantel adds a really nice look!!
We received our 20' beams and installed them. They were easy to install and they gave us the real wood look we wanted. You manufacture a great product. Thank you.
