Customer Questions & Answers

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.

Yes, they are quite versatile and can be used on almost any flat, smooth material.

Can this be used for exterior doorways?

Asked by: candice
I don't see why not, but are you going to have a curved door in the doorway?

how many per box?

Asked by: Jim
You get 2 3 1/2" x 13" radius prefab'd arches to make 1 arch kit per box. Each half also comes with a split cut feature which allows you the option to deepen the arch if your wall depth is greater than 3 1/2" (Standard 2x4 openings) See photo gallery

Do I need to use corner bead on the archways?

Asked by: Gman9267
I don't remember what the directions say but I used a plastic corner bead. I found it hard to get a really nice edge so the corner bead was helpful. I used a lot of screws to make sure it curved well.

13 in. Prefabricated Framing Arch Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 46.
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 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 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 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!
