A cupola is the perfect home improvement project

Cupola and Blue Heron Weathervane on Our Roof

Now that the snowdrifts have melted from the front porch and you can actually get out in the yard to assess the aftermath of winter, take a good, long look at your house, barn or garage. Is it in need of a minor facelift? If so, we have just the prescription -- a wood or vinyl cupola that makes your building stand tall and proud among the rest. Cupolas have been used for centuries worldwide to add beauty and elegance to homes, churches and government buildings, and when it comes to getting a lot of bang for your buck, cupolas soar over other home-improvement projects.

  For as little as a few hundred dollars, you can get the perfect size and style of cupola to match your taste and your home's architecture, increasing its value and curb appeal 10-fold. What's more, this is one of those remodeling projects that will last a lifetime with little or no maintenance, even in storm-prone areas, because our cupolas are rated to withstand 120-mph winds.

  We have cupolas with windows, cupolas with stained glass and cupolas with louvers that can be used for ventilation. We have octagonal cupolas, cedar cupolas and cupolas with lights to make your new space shine at night. Many of our domes have copper roofs, providing the ultimate in elegance and durability. All of them come with free shipping in the lower 48 states.

  Each of our cupolas is handmade by three generations of Amish craftsmen right here in the United States, so you know you're getting the best quality around. We also give complete instructions on how to choose a size and install your cupola, which comes in three sections for ease of handling. We put one on our own house and took photos to show you the step-by-step details. That was 10 years ago, and not a day goes by that we don't admire it as we pull into the driveway. I'd say that was a pretty good investment.
