Real wooden beams are incredibly beautiful, with a strength nearly unmatched by anything else. Unfortunately, they are also incredibly heavy which limits where they can actually be installed. Real wood is prone to absorption of moisture and humidity, ultimately leading to cracking, warping, and twisting. Typically, wooden beams need to be professionally replaced every 5-10 years.
Faux wooden beams from our Santa Fe custom beam manufacturing company are impressively lightweight and can be installed in virtually any spot. They are designed to last a lifetime without the need for professional attention or replacement. Faux beams are highly resistant to moisture absorption.
