Conventional wooden beams and faux beams may look the same, but they are vastly different. Wooden beams typically need to be replaced every 5-10 years, as moisture absorption leads to twisting, warping, and cracking. They are also incredibly heavy, which limits where they can be installed. Lompoc custom faux beams are an almost indistinguishable replica, while being impressively lightweight and lasting a lifetime. They are highly moisture-resistant and incredibly durable.
