The following is a customer testimonial about his experience working with us and our product line. Enjoy!

Dear Arch-Rite,

Eyebrow Arch KitI used a couple of your arch kits in my recent home improvement project.  My wife loves them!  She thinks I’m a genius.  It made our 30 year old home look elegant again (along with new carpet and furniture). I’ve attached a few photos to this email.

I have very little construction and/or handyman experience and I was concerned about whether I could tackle a tough job like adding arches to two of my doorways.  Then I found your web-site.  Ordering was easy.  Your customer service reps answered all of my questions and I received my arch kits a few days after ordering.  The instructions were crystal clear.  I also watched your on-line videos for help before starting.  I had both arch kits installed in less than 30 minutes.

On a side note, I couldn’t believe that your arch kits were so inexpensive.

I had researched a few other companies’ arch kits, but they were at least twice as expensive.  (They also looked more complicated.)

Thanks, Arch-Rite for a great product that made my job easier.  My only problem now is that my wife wants me to put one of your dome kits in!
