Problems fitting UPVC window into opening with arch

Postby texteditor » Sat Jul 04, 2009 12:24 pm

I want to replace my kitchen window with a upvc unit but the top of the window opening is slightly arched.
Can I get a upvc section to cut to shape? or can I have the window made to fit? I don't want to fit upvc with a wooden batten above as this does away with the no maintenance properties.
Thanks, texteditor.

texteditor,
Get a flat piece of upvc and cut this to fit the arch so it overlaps the frame, superglue it in place.
