Radius top, casement windows with gothic grills?

lexmomof3December 4, 2012

I really want the gothic or cross arch, radius top windows in the dormers but I'm having a hard time finding them in a vinyl window. One is in a bedroom so it must meet egress requirements, the other two can be fixed. I really would like to do vinyl windows to save on costs and I'm leaning towards Soft-lite Pro in the almond color. The style of the gothic/cross arch window really adds a lot to the overall look but Soft-lite does not offer this option as far as I can tell. From what I have gathered, Ply Gym isn't as good as Soft-lite. Is there really that big of a difference between the quality of the two? I'm looking at the Pro version of each. Are there any others that offer a similar window? I don't think I can go with a double hung and radius top transom without making the dormers larger because of the egress issue. This is a picture of the windows I like.

You can get them in a tilt and turn.

We did a set and the customer loved them.

WOW - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that window! Who makes that one? Is it vinyl? After looking at Ply Gym again, I'm not sure that they have a single piece window like that. It looks like the ply gym window is a window with transom. Any idea on the cost? Window size (as shown for the rectangular window in the plans) is 2'8" x 4'4".

Radius top windows look great! We recently got champion Window to do our replacement windows, and they did a great job of it. Those were ordinary casement windows. Just call them to find out if they have the kind of windows you're looking for?
