What do you call this sort of vent?


The one on the garage above the window?

Looks to low to be a vent, on the main house the one at the top is called a gable vent.
Pictures take way to far back to be sure.

If it's not vented then it's an arch.

+1

The triangular section on the main home is a gable end vent.

The half moon section above the other window is either a half round window or a decorative half round header.
