My wife and I wanted to send you a note to say thanks! After much debate about what should go over our fireplace, we decided on a mantel. Luckily, I found your products on your website. We wanted to tell you about our satisfaction and share our appreciation. Everything went according to plan and the FauxWood mantel we purchased really looks good. The look and results are just what we wanted.
Enclosed is a picture of the start and end results. Of course, my wife is still looking at other things, but this mantel is just what we wanted. And everybody who has seen it has been very impressed. They also can't believe it was a project I could handle without a professional.
My master bedroom has a 10 ft vaulted ceiling where the drywall finishing work was bad. So, I decided to cover up the poorly done drywall. I installed tongue and groove pine, with a coat of "natural stain" followed by a coat of "English oak." I then installed one of the larger resawn beams over the seam where the vault meets the flat part if the ceiling, a seam that was always cracking. I used a faux bracket tp cover up a splice on a 21 ft run. Gaps between the tongue and groove sections were then covered with smaller beams. The room is not quite finished yet. Every one of my beams required compound miter joints which I did with a cordless circular saw. The material is easy to work with. Final fit was made after cutting using a file to get each joint just right. I hung all of the beams by myself, too. Even the larger sized 16 foot length. Great product! I am getting lots of compliments. :)
After searching for old barn beams for a mantle to go along with our rustic taste, I was getting very discouraged...until I came across your site. I ordered a mantle immediately and was completely surprised! We just finished and I think it looks amazing. No one knows it's not the real thing. Thank you so much!
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!
