Installing Simonton 5500 Reflections Double Hung BOX With Half Round Attached.


I need professional advice on how to install a Simonton 5500 Reflections Vinyl Double Hung BOX With Half Round Geometric Attached on top.

Window TOTAL Size 72" Wide x 86" Tall including Half Round.

Two separate double hung windows are factory mulled together
Double Hung Window has head expander.
Double hung are 72" wide by 50" high.

Separate Half Round Geometric is 72" wide at bottom by 36" high and will attached to top of Double Hung Windows.

Do I install the double hung windows first or the half round?

Should I put a bead of Silicone sealant across the top of the double hung windows before attaching the arch?

Any suggestions on how to prop up the Half Round while screwing it in if Half Round gets installed first?

ALSO, DO YOU HAVE ANY VIDEO'S ON THE INTERNET ABOUT INSTALLING THIS TYPE OF WINDOW CONFIGURATION?

Thank you in advance for your professional advice.

Pretty sure Simonton frowns on DIY installation, and insists that a contractor does the job.

We would always get that window in one piece when we get 2 windows lower and upper they always get 2or3 2x6 in between them. Go back to the manufactures for instructions. Every video that I have watched make some mistakes or are leaving out some detail so using them can give you a bad install.
