You don’t want to invest in products that will not stand up to the test of time, so it’s important that you know your faux beams are virtually maintenance free.

Heavy Duty Construction

Faux beams are made of a high density foam product that is both lightweight and extremely hard. This allows it to mimic the look and feel of real wood beams while making it significantly easier to work with in construction. High density foam is poured into a master mold and when extracted is very dense.

Durable Finish

Beams are available in a variety of textures that mimic natural wood. Once the beam has been formed, a finish coat is applied to the outside, or the beam can be left primed for a custom faux finish application. Faux beams are a great option for updating your home’s interior and exterior without having to worry about future maintenance. These beams are made to last, and they come in many varieties so you can order exactly what you want the first time.
