Our website is our catalog! Because we regularly add new products, styles and colors to our lineup of products, we feel that a printed catalog would become out of date too quickly to justify the printing and shipping costs. In addition, that enables us to be more environmentally friendly and, by not printing physical catalogs, we save money that we can pass on to you by offering our products at a lower price.
Be assured that our website is regularly updated, and features the most accurate and up-to-date information about available products, costs, shipping details and more.
Because we use real wood to create our beams, there are limitations in the length we can provide using single pieces of wood. When you order a beam exceeding 14’ in length, there will be a visible scarf joint where two lengths of wood meet.
Alternatively, you can order individual sections of beam up to 14’ long, and butt the flat ends up against each other to create the appearance of a single, longer beam. However, once again, the joint/seam will be visible.
We recommend using a decorative strap to conceal any joints. These are rubber straps that resemble the iron bands that used to brace real timber beams. Many customers use them even when there is no seam to cover.
If you are ordering a beam that has a width or height of more than 10.5”, there will be a seam where two lengths of wood are connected to create the width needed. While we do our utmost to prevent any obvious visible seams, we do need to produce our wider products like this to reduce the chance of any issues in the future of the wood “cupping” or “bowing” as is normal on planks that are wider than 10.5 inches.
We can ship worldwide, but if you live outside of North America we will need to consult with your shipping broker.
If you’d like to “try before you buy”, we do offer physical samples of our different products for you to approve. Our expert Customer Care representatives will also be able to assist you with any questions you have about our products.
How you decide to place your beams is entirely up to you. We recommend looking at project photos and the ceilings of homes with real timber supporting beams to see what style you like and what looks most realistic.
Aside from that, though – it’s entirely up to you. You could have the first wood beam start right up against the wall or leave some space between the first beam and the wall.
Alternatively, you could start with a half beam – one beam that you have cut lengthwise down the middle – or you can order an L-Header. Place this up against the wall, placing the other half against the opposite wall, and you’ll have the appearance of beams embedded inside the wall, much like you’d find in a true timber-framed home.
The slideshow on the right shows these three different looks for your ceiling beams.
