Every so often I encounter a builder who claims "I get my arches for free." Up until yesterday it had been at the International Builder Show, but it happened again and I can bet it will happen at least once more.
First, let's start off with some things we know to be true. Curvature adds warmth and character to your homes. You put the arches in either because they are on the plan or you know that if there are arches it will sell, call it the Field of Dreams approach. It takes a lot of time and a lot of practice to be able to build a quality arch in the field.
Second, ARCHES ARE NOT FREE. Any subcontractor who tells you this is either a lousy business person or thinks you are. Trust me no one lifts a hammer for free on a job site. The arches are in the square foot price or (more likely) your sub is going to hit you with overages to cover "last minute changes".
All right, now let's talk about why you should use Custom-Arch. Every time you bring in a component product you put the power of building back in your hands and away from the subcontractor. You wouldn't have them build doors, stairs or cabinets, would you. The materials (and Waste!) used to build the arches can be better allocated to their intended purpose. Every day you save in construction gets you to closing faster.
Our arches are built to your plans. Every arch is built to a perfect radius. You eliminate arch related rework, warranty and buyer dissatisfaction issues.
Custom-Arch arches are easy to install. We turn orders around in a few days. We deliver at dry-in. No orders are too small.
To those builders who claim they don't pay for arches...sometimes you get what you don't pay for!!!
And this costs a whole lot less that the rework on the above pictures...
