While faux beams are carefully designed to exactly replicate conventional wood, they are vastly different from each other in function and versatility. At our Orem custom beam manufacturing company, we create faux beams that are impressively lightweight and designed to last a lifetime without the need for replacement. Faux wooden beams are extremely resistant to moisture absorption, which protects against warping, cracking, and other damage.
Conventional wooden beams are made completely from real wood, making them incredibly heavy and limited in where they can be installed. Real wood is prone to moisture and humidity absorption, which makes them expand and contract, needing to be professionally replaced every 5-10 years.
