Faux beams and conventional wooden beams are designed to look exactly alike, but each is vastly different from the other in function and versatility. As a five-star Templeton custom beam manufacturing company, Woodland Beam creates faux beams that are incredibly lightweight and designed to last a lifetime. Each is highly resistant to moisture absorption, protecting themselves against warping, cracking, and the need for replacement.
Conventional wooden beams are naturally quite heavy, which severely limits where they can be installed. Because real wood is prone to absorption of moisture and humidity, they expand and contract which leads to cracks, warping, and the need for professional replacement every 5-10 years. Traditional wooden beams can take longer to manufacture and deliver as well.
