At Weathervane Factory, we make it easy to choose the right metal cupola for your building. With hundreds of options in color, material, size, style, and appearance, you’ll find just what you’re looking for in our inventory. Selecting a metal cupola is an excellent way to get the most value out of your investment since our metal cupolas are designed and built to last for many years.
Calculating the Right Cupola Size
Use this simple formula to make sure your cupola is the right size: Ridge Line length x 1.25”+ Minimum Cupola Size. It couldn’t be any easier to choose a beautiful cupola to fit your home, pole barn, or shed. Consider a few additional items of interest for the best appearance and function:
- For any roof length over 48’, consider adding one or more cupolas to create a more balanced look and add additional function, whether ventilation or light.
- A roof length over 60’ could easily support two smaller cupolas on either end with a larger cupola in the middle.
- Consider creating a mock-up cardboard cupola the size you’re thinking about buying and placing it on your roof to get a better idea what the real thing will look like.
1-2-3 Metal Cupola Selection
- Choose a shape that will complement the look of your building. At Weathervane Factory, we carry an exceptional selection of square, hexagon, and octagon-shaped cupolas to meet your needs.
- Decide on windows for improved lighting or louvers for added ventilation. Regardless of which way you go, you’ll find numerous options available under each selection.
- Now is the time to consider the size of your metal cupola. Use the simple formula provided for the best possible results.
- Take a few minutes to make sure metal is the right choice for your cupola. While metal comes with many advantages over other types of material, it’s not the best choice for all of our customers. Feel free to reach out to us with your questions.
- Select a cupola roof style from straight, concave, or bell-shaped.
