Decorative Cupola Features
All About The Decorative Cupola
Enhance your cottage with the charisma of a Decorative Cupola! You do not need to cut a rough opening in the roof of your building to install this beautiful feature. Our cupolas are constructed with a rough sawn hemlock frame, pine board and batten siding, and come with your choice of roofing, along with matching flashing. A Decorative Cupola can add visual interest to your building with minimal changes to the underlying structure.
If purchasing a cupola for any pre-cut kit design, your cupola will come ready to assemble. The bottom angles will be flat, for you to match to the roof line of your building. No rough opening is necessary for the installation of a decorative cupola.
