Customer Questions & Answers

Can this arch kit be used on windows as well as doorways?

Asked by: bb
No. This arch is preformed to a 13" radius. Most arched windows are either half circles or segmented arched windows (eyebrow). You will want to custom order the arch via the manufacturers website.

Can these arches be used on wood door openings as opposed to sheetrock door openings as demonstrated in the videio

My door openings are wood as opposed to sheetrock.
Asked by: WeeK
You could but I'm not sure how you would blend it into the rest of the wood. You would have a little step at the ends of the arches and you would see the screws unless you recessed them and filled the holes. Also it wouldn't match the rest of the wood. If you used filler and painted it you could probably make it look good. You can cover anything with drywall and enough mud!

13 in. Prefabricated Framing Arch Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results ! Far easier than trying to build your own. The installed in about 10 minutes and look great. The hardest part of the whole project was the drywall, mudding and texture, I recommend using 1/4 inch drywall for the curved part of the arch. Wet the backing and let it sit for a while. bend it into place and screw it in. Worked like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Arch Kit simplified my door conversion to an arched entryway. As a do-it-yourselfer, I was really excited to find the Arch Kit on the Home Depot web site. The kit came with great installation instructions and the product is a very robust, simple to install arch that helped transform a boring doorway into a modern archway. A quality product that is reasonably priced. A great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good but installation instructions had one issue. These are a great help if you want to build arches in your home. They are made of solid materials and there are PDF's and videos online that you can watch to help you install. The only issue I have is with their instructions on how to bend the sheet rock. They just show the guy wetting the back a little and then it bends right up. No way! I let the water soak in and it still wouldn't bend. I researched it and the only way to bed sheet rock seems to be if you buy 1/4" flexible sheet rock. I had to make cuts in the back every inch to bend it up. I also noticed on the sheet rock video that the guy just put a line of screws down the middle of the sheet rock which I thought was not very smart, and next thing there was a cut in the movie and he had them on both sides. That was just amusing though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, cheap price, high quality materials... The Universal Arch Kit was much easier to install than I expected. I am not a handyman by any means, but this product made me look like one! I checked with a local contractor to have an archway built for my hallway and wasn't in my budget, this product saved me half the cost and didn't take much time to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Arch product PERIOD Extremely quick and easy install. Remodel or new construction this is your archway remedy. Great paper instructions come in the box and there's a video from the company of you're still not sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy! Perfect Corners! I put a wall in my entryway, and I wanted a rounded door frame. Basically I could only find two options: A full rounded arch piece for around $300 or this simple corner kit for $20. It was an easy choice for me. The kit is super simple (just two pieces of wood) and fool-proof to install. I built a square doorway, then tacked these pieces up into the corners, and that was it. Super easy! I've never built a wall or doorway before, and never hung drywall before. But I did this project by myself and it was a since. Great buy!
