The windswept texture of raised grain beams adds a subtle but compelling presence to your interior or exterior decor.
The way we make all of our faux wood beams is the same. We start with an actual real wood beam. We then sand blast the real wood beam to raise the grain to make it more pronounced. Then we make a high quality mold out of the distressed real wood beam. This mold is used to make the faux wood beam. All of the characteristics of the real wood beam are perfectly copied to the faux wood beam.
The availability of four-sided beams makes it the ideal choice for creating trusses for that timber framed look.
NOTE: If you are looking to cover and existing Beam or Column, you CANNOT use these Beams (or any of our monolithic/molded as one piece Beams). This can be accomplished by using either our Custom Beams, Quick Ship Timber Beams, or Real Wood Beams. You cannot use any beams other than the aforementioned Beams in this type of application. Due to the nature of our manufacturing process, Monolithic/Molded as one piece Beams can have considerable variations on the Inside dimensions and shape of the Beam (even from Beam to Beam on the same size OD Beams).

We use these beams anytime our clients want beams in our custom homes and they have never failed us. Easy install and amazing look!
These beams were the perfect addition to my family room. They were pretty easy to install. My husband and his friends installed three twenty foot beams in a few hours. I love the way they turned out.
We came up with a method to paint the beams to make them look weathered. We had an artist / Contractor build a blend of stains, sand, glue and grout in a two step process to really make your beams look weathered. Your Beams are so cool. If you are ever in so. Cal I would love to show you.
The beams look outstanding, installation was average difficulty. The only drawback was the rubber strapping material used to cover splices in the beam - I would suggest using the custom formed splices instead.
Very impressed with the lightweight quick and easy installation done in one day. Very easy to form the product with a knife, sander, or grinder. Decrative straps also add to the look and were also easy to install. I will never use solid real wood beams again for interior ceilings or trusses.

The beams were great to work with. This being the first time we used them we didn't know what to expect. To our amazement they were easy to handle and went up quickly. Everyone looks at them first when walking in the room and ignore the corner fireplace with stone facade. Many of our vendors and trade partners have commented on how real they are.
This train station was rehabilitated after a fire set by vagrants gutted the entire building. We used the faux wood beam in the raised grain as a replication of existing hand cut beams from the early 1910's. Over 2000 patrons visit this station every day and I have personally witnessed comments of awe wondering how the contractor got the heavy wood beams up into place. Ha, little did they know a few 2"x6"s for the truss structure was all that was needed for the complete installation of the beams.
I can't believe the number of people who tell me that they thought it was real.
We installed faux beams in the great room of our Parade of Homes entry in York County, PA. We received SO many positive comments from folks on the tour! I am certain it was a huge factor in the sale of the home.
Visitors can not believe the beams are not real. I have actually had to argue with some folks. We stained them with the same stain as the rest of our woodwork and they look absolutely real.
We just completed construction of our new gymnasium at our school. We wanted to give it a lodge look and was told about Faux Wood Beams. After researching other products we made the decision to go with Faux beams based on the look, the price and what appeared to be the ease of installation. We were not disappointed. As a matter of fact I am the CFO of the school and I was the one who installed the beams since it was not in our contractor's scope. I would recommend the product to anyone, commercial or residential that is looking for an authentic wood look without spending enormous sums of money. Best of all you can do it yourself. FAUX WOOD BEAMS ARE TRULY A GREAT PRODUCT
We needed no extra structure or supports and the beams look great! We have installed beams in three homes in the past year and they're always a big hit with our customers.

I first used this product in our office building and then decided to install the beams in our get-a-way home in the mountains. The beams absolutely changed the look and feel of every room they were installed. I first installed them in the kitchen and family room and have now finished the Master Suite and game room. Our friends and family have now added them to their home with outstanding results. It does not get any better than this. I am a builder and have attended the National show each year and this product is by far the best of the best. They will exceed your expectations.
Included in this testimonial are some pictures of the faux beams my wife and I are extremely happy with. After considerable phone advice from the helpful and patient staff at Fauxwoodbeams.com we ordered the Raised Grain 10
