WeatherVanes Rooster Logo With Text @2x

Good directions offers many different cupolas for all types and styles of buildings.  When you shop for a cupola remember to think about the size you will need and the style you want.  Size is typically chosen by the size of barn or structure that the cupola is going to be mounted to.  Style is up to the purchasers taste and often is chosen in order to match a property theme.

How to choose the right size of cupola for your building

The process of installing a cupola does not include cutting any holes into the roof of the existing structure.  A cupola can be added easily to your home or an out building to add a completely different look and feel to your property.  A weathervane is the perfect addition to the tops of your newly installed cupola.   The size of a cupola refers specifically to the length of the bottom of the cupola roof.

How to choose the right size of cupola for your home:

When selecting a size a cupola there should be 1.5″ of cupola for every foot of roofline.

Example:  20 feet of roof line x 1.5”, equals a cupola size of 30″ square.  If the cupola is too small or to large it will give an imbalanced look to the building.Example:  if you have 15 feet of unbroken roof line, take 15 x 1.5″  (cupola should be 22″ square or larger)

All cupolas we offer are built to easily attach a weathervane to the top.   All cupolas are made to fit up to a normal 10/12 pitch
