Faux wood beam features
They’re Lightweight: Faux wood beams are so easy to handle that with a little assistance from a helping hand, installation can easily be completed by two people. This means less manpower, less labor and less cost. Real wood is very heavy, oftentimes awkward to carry and lift which requires more people for the installation process. Naturally, these conditions lengthen the time it takes to finish the project and may affect labor costs.
They’re Hollow. This characteristic affects ease of installation, but also impacts the types of applications in which faux wood beams are suitable. contractors, designers and homeowners appreciate this feature because it enables design and installation for surround sound, recessed lighting, electrical components as well as the option to hide wiring or structural flaws. Real wood beams are solid and don’t offer this advantage.
They’re Customizable. While this doesn’t directly affect the installation process, it does impact how long it takes you to complete the project from start to finish. There’s the option of purchasing finished beams for quick projects, or choosing unfinished materials for your own staining or painting techniques. If you’re considering real wood beams just know that what you see is what you get.
