When faced with the choice between conventional wooden beams and faux beams, there are a few key differences that should be noted. Though conventional wooden beams are incredibly beautiful and bring a natural, robust appearance to any space, they are known to be extremely heavy and prone to moisture absorption. This eventually leads to cracking, warping, twisting, and the potential for mildew growth. Additionally, conventional wooden beams need to be replaced every 5-10 years.
When you choose a custom faux beam from our carpenters at Woodland Beam, you will be receiving an almost indistinguishable replica of conventional wooden beams. These are carefully designed to be moisture-resistant and warp-proof, and are expertly built in the USA by master carpenters.
