About This Product

Now you can easily and economically recreate the rustic look afforded by authentic, aged oak beams with American Pro Decor Unfinished 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. Ideally suited for transforming ordinary houses, stores and restaurants into extraordinary, charming country style homes, shops and inns, American Pro Decor hollowed hand hewn beams are lightweight, sturdy, and easy to install on virtually any type of surface by means of affixing them via countersunk nails or screws to nailing blocks or wood planks. To heighten the overall authenticity of an installation, American Pro Decor offers optional rubber beam strapping and polyurethane U-brackets, which perfectly replicate the look of the heavy, forged wrought iron fastening hardware used to secure and affix the beams of yesteryear in place.

  • Beam size: 8 in. width x 5-1/8 in. height x 12 ft. 9 inches Long

Q:What is the recommended method of fastening the beam to the ceiling?
by|Oct 13, 2023
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Thanks for your inquiry. It recommended to use small wood blocks cut to size. The size must fit tightly across the internal width of the beam. The wood block would need to be anchored to the ceiling. With the anchors cut, you need to figure out exactly where they will be placed. A good rule of thumb is to start as close to the wall as possible leaving three of four feet between each anchor. This is contingent on finding a stud or joist. In order to do so, use stud finder. If you are having trouble locating one close to the wall, you can use mollies to lock down your anchors. Mollies are okay in this situation because of the light weight of your faux beam. While it is still preferable to latch onto studs or joist, as long as you are able to catch a few, the weight of the beam will distribute itself enough that there should not be too much strain on the mollied anchors.

            Awesome faux logs
            I was bit skeptical ordering faux logs; however, they were more realistic than the photos online. I used 3 different colors of gel stain, because wanted a weathered look. I used a base gray oil based gel stain, then briarsmoke, then black. Making sure each is dried/cured. I then I slightly diluted a small amount (cup) of whitewash stain. I dabbed here there and achieved the effect I wanted. Key is do not wait to rub off any excess. I think they turn out good for 1st time doing faux logs.

                The product has a very nice natural look. Using gel stain made it really pop. I did a lot of checking on-line for the same product at a lessor cost, but buying through HD is the way to go. It was easy to cut, handle and install. I used anchors from scrap wood, but I would recommend hanging a 2x4 the length of the ceiling for the target location.

                  We applied a primer first and then 2 coats of stain to get the dark color we wanted. During installation, it clipped off the stain in many areas and had to be toughed up, it is very easy to install and looks great.
