Metal Building Cupola
A cupola is a small structure that sits on the peak of a building’s roofing. The base, which is often square or rectangular, usually has windowed or louvered sides. The cupola can be topped with a dome, a pyramid, a weathervane or another type of decorative finial.
Cupolas are a great aesthetic option for your next metal barn or steel building project, as they add interest to the roofline.
Metal buildings are already more resistant to mold, rot and other moisture issues than traditional construction. But including a cupola on your metal roof can help even more. Cupolas assist with pulling fresh air into your building via its roofing, as well as help control humidity, thus reducing the risk of mold, rot, and other issues associated with moisture that’s unable to escape. In hay barns in particular, barn cupolas also allow natural sunlight and fresh air into the hayloft all day long, from all four directions, to help dry out the hay.
Metal Cupolas from Worldwide Steel
Worldwide Steel Buildings has three different cupola size options to choose from. Like the rest of our building components, our custom cupolas are designed to compliment your project perfectly, and come pre-painted to match. Each of our cupolas can be designed to incorporate louvers or windows, depending on your needs.
What if you don’t know exactly what your needs are? Worldwide Steel experts are available to provide you with guidance on every aspect of your metal building design, and metal cupolas are no exception.
When working with our designers, we’ll be able to help you choose the location and number of cupolas to fit your project. Since even a decorative cupola can play an important role in ventilation, our team can help you decide if you need more than one, whether a 24 inch cupola or 48 inch cupola would work best on your building, whether a windowed or louvered cupola is ideal for your needs, and the best location for installation, keeping both aesthetics and functionality in mind.
Like everything else in your metal building kit, any custom cupolas included with your project will be easy to assemble and attach to your metal building during the construction process. Whichever building components you choose are added to your custom-printed assembly instructions, making your metal building process truly DIY, no matter how many building accessories it includes.
