More Cupola Details
Copper roofs feature 16 oz, 25 gauge genuine copper; the optional Staybrite coating helps to keep the copper from oxidizing. Steel roofs feature 26 gauge painted steel.
Louvered cupolas can provide ventilation and windowed cupolas can provide lighting for your structure.
60 and 72 inch cupolas are constructed with double midsection panels.
Window configurations vary slightly depending on cupola size and shape.
Cupola windows can be removed to change bulbs. You can also order one window with hinges.
Weathervane/Finial Mount consists of an opening ¾” in diameter at the peak (closed with a rubber plug) and a metal bracket inserted below the peak to hold 5-6 inches of the weathervane rod.
We can make custom sizes and styles of cupolas, just call for details.
How To Choose The Right Cupola Size
Choosing the correct cupola size will ensure it is in proper proportion with your structure.
Calculate 1.25 inches of cupola size for every foot of unbroken roof ridge line.
If the size you need falls between available sizes, choose the next largest cupola size available.
If you are using 2 or 3 cupolas, calculate 1.5 inches of cupola size for every foot of roof line.
If you are using 4 or more cupolas, calculate 1.75 inches of cupola size for every foot of roof line.
How to Measure Your Roof Pitch
Mark on the bottom of a level the spot that is 12 inches from the end.
Place that end of the level against the roof, and keeping it horizontal, measure from the spot you marked on the level down to the roof below.
That measurement is the amount of vertical rise in your roof pitch.
For example, if you measure 7 inches from the level to the roof, your roof pitch is 7/12 (7 inches rise over 12 inches of horizontal).
