Most Loving Review

Custom Tuscany Beams Customer Rating: 5 Stars Submitted by Michelle E on February 1, 2013 Absolutely gorgeous I have attached before, during, and after pictures of my 1964 fireplace remodel. You cannot even tell it is the same fireplace! The beam is absolutely gorgeous, and anyone who comes to see it is amazed by how real it looks. Even though we ordered a 9’ long mantel, it was easy to install. I added a light coat of stain to achieve a darker look to match my décor, but I let some of the original Cedar stain show through. I am very pleased with the end result! Thanks again for your wonderful customer service and amazing product!

Most Loved Blog Post

There are many different types of faux wood beams to choose from, but what do all those names mean? In February 2013, Roland posted a comprehensive guide to each style of beam and their unique characteristics, from Timber to Pecky Cypress. Click the title to read the post:

What Are The Different Types of Faux Wood Beams?

Its extremely hard to tell the difference between our faux beams and a real ceiling beam just by looking at them on your ceiling. Faux wood beams are molded from the real thing for an ultra-realistic appearance. All the characteristics that make a ceiling beam unique is recreated perfectly thanks to the molding process. Faux wood beams are very easy to paint or stain to match your exact need if we don't have a finish that works for your design. Whether its a rough chop of an axe or subtle tooling, your false beam will stay true to the original.

It's hard to go wrong when a kitchen has big windows and a great view. Lovers of wood adore this design. Our faux wood beams, accented by beam straps, keep the ceiling from being an overwhelming white.

Most Loved Product

With its rugged, natural look of real rough-hewn wood, many sizes to choose from and ready to ship fast, it's no wonder why the Timber Beam is such a fan favorite.
