How To Choose the Right Size Cupola

Take a few moments to review the information presented here to help you select the right cupola. Cupolas and weathervanes make great-looking additions to homes and other buildings. Cupolas can be used for ventilation or can just be a decorative accent. (Most of our cupolas are purchased as decorative accents.)

In selecting the right size cupola for your building, a good rule of thumb is one and a quarter inches (1.25") of cupola base for every foot of unbroken roof line. The key idea here is the unbroken roof line measurement.

For example, if a roof section measures 20', the minimum cupola base should be 25". However, we usually suggest the next size larger. Our experience tells us it provides for a more pleasing appearance. If the cupola is too small, it will look like a bird house. In fact we recommend going one or two sizes larger, especially if there is significant height to the structure, or an adjoining building.

All of our cupolas are "weathervane ready." They do not require a roof mount or any additional hardware. You will only need a hand saw, a screwdriver and silicone caulk.

* Made from hand selected Northern White Pine.

* Topped with 16 ounce 24 gauge copper.

* Some cupolas come ready to assemble with easy to understand instructions.

* Complete installation guide included with every cupola.

* All cupolas come with one coat of a high quality primer.

* All cupolas 36 inches and larger must ship motor freight.
