How to Build an Archway in Minutes with The Arch-Rite Arch Kit

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

We all should know to leave the hard work and precise jobs to the professionals, but where we can accomplish the same task with little effort and for very little cost, we should hop on the opportunity to do it ourselves. One example of a job that most people can achieve is putting in a simple archway into their home. Archways are popular and can transform any entryway / doorway into a beautiful architectural appealing opening.

Just like with any job, there are tricks and tools to make the job easier. For building an archway, the Arch-Rite Arch Kit is this trick! The Arch-Rite Arch Kit ships directly to your house and is ready for installation as soon as it is delivered. All you have to do is pop it out of the box and simply nail into place.  Let’s go over the simple steps to give you a better understanding.

Simply Measure the Width of your opening to figure which arch you will need to order from Arch-Rite.

2nd, Mark your opening.

3rd, Nail or Screw the arch kit into place. (Quick tip: If you do not have a nail gun, it is easier to screw into place.)

Optional 4th step, If your opening is greater than a 2″x4″ opening simply finish the split cut already provided on the arch with a circular saw. (Yep you have 2 equal pieces now)

5th Step, Nail or Screw each arch piece. One piece should run flush with the front of your opening and the second should run flush with the back of your opening.

6th Step, That’s it! You are Finished! Ready for drywall.

So next time a professional stops by your house you can let them know you put that arch up in 5 minutes.  You will have them scratching there heads and wondering in amazement!

Arch-Rite Arch Kits: Low Cost Arch Kits that Transformed My Kitchen Doorways

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.)
