Now you can easily and economically recreate the rustic look afforded by authentic, aged oak beams with American Pro Decor finished hand hewn beams. Cast from the molds of genuine reclaimed wooden barn beams in high density polyurethane with exacting realism, American Pro Decor hand hewn beams not only convey all of the characteristic distressed markings and rugged texture of the wood beams that were hewn into shape by early settlers, they are indistinguishable from the originals after which they have been manufactured.

Hello ZenReno
You can fill any gaps or screw holes with a non-shrink wood putty and the manufacturer recommends tinting the putty befor installing. You also can fill with stainable putty and stain at the same time you are staining the Beam.
Here is the pdf file for more helpfull hints.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product Stunningly realistic, easy to install, and a great company (American Pro) to deal with. Shipped on time, well packed. 100% satisfied. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made the whole house look custom We wish we had done it along time ago, the beams really changed the look of the house. We added 8.5 ft of the 13 ft long beams to the top of our tray ceiling in the living room and used the remaining 3.5 ft for down the hall. I bought 4 beams and placed them 4 ft on center in the living room and 5 ft down the hall. They are not hard to cut, but to cut them square with little or no gaps was not easy. I used a manual hand sander with a dry wall screen attached to sand them flush and smooth on the ends. Worked great. Suggest cutting them about 1 inch longer than measured and work with each end to insure they are square. I used pine boards 1 x 3 (2.5 actual) x full length of beam to mount the beams. I drilled 3 holes on center of each board, held them to the ceiling and match drilled thru the dry wall. I then installed dry wall plastic inserts that hold 75 lbs each. Screwed the boards to the inserts, and then screwed the beams into the boards from the sides. 2 screws every 2 ft. (each side of beam). I did have a few gaps that I filled in with thin strips of the scraps using glue to hold them. They came double boxed. No issues. January 27, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks amazingly beautiful! These beams add so much to what I wanted to accomplish in my living room design. So realistic. April 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Faux wood beam Great product. Don't order short and try to extend it. Difficult to find on home depot website. Go down the specifications on the sample beam and find the code. Enter the product code in search box. I really liked it. October 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by accurate title Overall I highly recommend this very inexpensive and easy installation solution for wood beams in your home. I have never seen one of these before nor handled anything like it so it took me about 2.5 to 3 hours to fully install. Three things to note: 1. Measure the width of your ceiling and cut, using a hand saw, the faux beam to 1/2" to 1" longer than the width of your ceiling placement. You can later slowly trim it down to size to fit securely so there are no gaps between the wall and the beam. 2. There are no install instructions so I had to do some research on YouTube. The key to the install is cutting a 2x4 to 8" to 10" lengths as framing/braces and nailing/screwing them to your ceiling equally spaced apart. I used 5 braces on my 12'8" ceiling width so my spacing was about 2ft apart per brace. You then slide the beam over the braces - make certain your first and last brace are against the ceilings edge at the wall and one in the center of the ceiling then space accordingly with the remaining braces. 3. The inside of the faux wood beam is NOT perfectly straight...this will cause you to have to shave/cut the width of the 2x4 (naturally 3.5"s wide) brace down to the specific inside width of faux beam at each location you intend to place a brace. Cut the width just snug enough that each braces fits firmly into the faux beam and make the braces flush with the open side of the faux beam and number the beams from 1 to X AND place the word "UP" next to the number. From end to end, measure the center point of faux beam and draw a line through the lengths of all the braces...this will be the center point of each shaved/cut brace - each one will be different based on how and where the inside of the faux beam warps back and forth. NOTE: On each brace continue the center line down the edges of the braces as if you were trying to draw the center line all the way around the brace. This last step is important because all your center lines are now facing UP and will be placed against the ceiling, with out the continued center line down the edges you won't be able to see the center lines which is quite necessary. 4. Pull all the braces out of the faux beam and mark the number of the brace to the bottom side - you can also extend the center line from the edges to the bottom of the brace to. 5. Next A) Draw a center line on the ceiling where you want your faux beam to go. Hopefully this center line crosses some studs so have something solid to attach your braces to B) on the ceiling roughly outline the begin/end points of where each brace will attach to. C) Starting with brace #1, with the word "UP" is facing the ceiling, match the center line of the brace to the center line on the ceiling within begin/end points and screw/nail it to the ceiling - make certain its firmly attached - if not able to hit a stud, you WILL need anchors to attach the braces to the ceiling. D) Finish all braces to the ceiling in the same fashion. 6. If #2 and #4 were followed well, your faux beam should just slide right up over the braces for a snug/firm fit - if you are off in any of your measurements, meaning, the NOT straight, curvy inside of the faux beam not matching up with your original brace placements - then the inside curvy edges of the beam won't probably fit correctly over where the braces are placed causing you to have redo some brace cuts and/or placements. You can always pinch the beam around a thinner brace, but you don't want to force the beam wider around too thick of a brace. 7. With the beam over the braces and snug up against ceiling, use two screws per brace (one for each side) to attach the beam to the wood. I suggest screws and NOT nails otherwise if you ever need to take the beam down you will tear the beam up trying to get that nail out. Also, recess the screw about 1/4" into the beam so you can later cover the screw holes up with marker or screw covers cut out of the excess beam you cut away. Good luck. February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful real wooden looking beams These beams are more than I expected. They are absolutely beautiful and authentic looking. Every one thinks they are real wood beams. They made a major difference in the look of our kitchen and I love them. The carpenter said they were easy to install (he is a professional) and it didn't take too much time and no mess at all. Great beams and price. August 6, 2014
