Circle-top Window Prices and Costs
October 11, 2010
Circle-top windows add a decorative touch to your home. These half-round windows are installed above existing windows to let in more light and add visual interest. Because circle-top windows are primarily an architectural detail and are placed in inaccessible locations, circle-top windows typically do not open.
Circle-top window prices and costs will vary according to the exact specifications of the windows chosen. The window size, frame material, glass type, and hardware all factor into the total circle-top window cost. When considering circle-top windows from different manufacturers make sure to compare windows with similar features. One manufacturer's "standard" feature may be another manufacturer's "optional upgrade."
