Every faux wood plank at Barron Designs is made via the same process used to create our beams. Each piece is a high-quality mold of an actual wooden plank with unique ridges and details reproduced every time. They look as beautiful and rich as real wood - the difference being that they last longer and cost a lot less! Their polyurethane makeup eliminates wood's disadvantages such as high cost, rot, weight, insect/animal issues and wear. These planks possess the same warmth and charming appeal that real wood offers - you won't be able to tell the difference. They are also easy to handle and install, saving you time and energy.
