Project of the month Project of the Month
Trammell Crow Residential builds multifamily residences all over the USA. This photo shows a room in their Alexan Springs II development in Texas, featuring our Raised Grain beams.

Julie writes from Houston: "Thanks for the great product and making TCR Alexan Springs II look so good." And we thank TCR for a striking example of how much a few simple beams can do. Picture the room without them!

We'd love to see your project.
Please send us a good-quality photo and brief description, and we'll send you a $100 check if we include it on our Testimonials or Portfolio page.
Cracked beam Quick Tip
What if you accidentally drop a faux beam or step on it, and it cracks?

You can easily fix most cracks and splits so they're completely invisible.

Spread adhesive on the inside of the cracked surface and apply wood splints across the crack. Make sure the crack is tightly closed, and let the adhesive cure for 24 hours. Then touch up the crack with matching stain if needed. For more details, see our step-by-step procedure.
