Yes, absolutely! Our 3-sided beams can be installed directly over your ridge beam which will as as support. Keep in mind that inside dimensions of our 3 Sided U-Shaped Volterra beams are 2 inches narrower as each side is 1 inch.
The article is inspired by a letter below from Nancy.
Thank you for the wonderful product information. At this time, we are
finishing a three season room with an unsightly support beam sightly off
center in the ceiling area. The room also has a vaulted ceiling, which we love and do not want to lose; therefore, the beam has to remain exposed.
The only other option would have been a straight flat ceiling covering the
span of the room, which would have concealed the beam as well as the
vaulted ceiling look…plain and borrowing!
I saw your beam covers when I was browsing the internet for viable
options to cover this beam and thought it would be an easy and lovely fix
to our problem. So, I wanted samples of your beam cover to determine
whether it would be a good fit to rectify our current dilemma.
Anyway, we are in the finishing stages of this project and we need to
move quickly with a decision. When ordering the product, I was under the
impression the samples would arrive within 3 -5 days (we reside in
Northern, Virginia). As of today, we still have not received the samples.
Since I am unable to access the tracking information (including carrier), I
do not know the status of the samples arrival date to our location. If for
some reason you (your company) did not send the samples, then please notify
me and we will pursue other avenues.
As for your ceiling tiles, great idea - Remnant of days gone bye and my
grandmother’s home! Would definitely be a consideration for future
renovation projects in our home.
Should you require additional information from us, then please feel free
to contact me…sooner opposed to later would be greatly appreciated!
