Years ago, before central air conditioning or circulating fans, cupolas (pronounced “COO-pull-ah”) were used to ventilate buildings and to keep their inhabitants cool in the hottest summer weather. Though modern conveniences have virtually eliminated the need for such an addition, today’s homeowners increasingly desire old-fashioned, traditional decorative touches for their home. Like copper chimney pots and weathervanes, cupolas are a dramatic decorative accent whose charm has withstood the tests of time and technology.
Our white vinyl cupolas are the ultimate in maintenance-free home decor. Whether mounted on a garage or home, they’ll be simply charming. The Dover Vinyl Cupola is traditionally designed with rounded paned “windows”, a simple smooth base, and a pagoda-style sloped roof. This cupola is designed for roofs with a pitch up to 10" rise per foot (known as 10/12" pitch). If your roof is above a 10/12” pitch, please call one of our product specialists at 800-919-1904 for information about an Extension Base.
Buyer’s Tip: All cupolas are more impressive when using two per roofline, so consider doubling up! For information about making sure what size and type of cupola is right for your home or garage, check out our Frequently Asked Questions in the info-link below.
