were developed to provide ventilation and light for buildings
while keeping rain and moisture out. You can see cupolas in
the shapes of domes on churches and public buildings. In fact,
the word “cupola” is derived from a word meaning “little
dome.” Cupolas on barns and houses usually resemble miniature
houses or sheds. Cupolas also made buildings look more visually
attractive, adding another eye-appealing feature to roofs.
Today, cupolas are available made from
wood, fiberglass, or vinyl. Wood cupolas are the cupola of
choice for traditionalists. Not only were the “original” barn
and home cupolas made from wood, wood cupolas have a look,
texture, and feel that no other material that is used to
make cupolas can match.
If you are looking for a wood cupola,
you will be able to find one in many styles. Wood cupolas
are available in variations of square, hexagonal, and octagonal
shapes. Wood cupolas come in different sizes to meet your
ventilation needs. You will also have a choice of copper
or aluminum for your wood cupola’s roof.
Whether you are building a new
home or barn or you are replacing an old cupola, you are
sure to find a wood cupola that pleases you.
