Our Favorite Pros For Roof Cupolas

If you have already determined that you would like to add a new shed or garage to your property, then it may have crossed your mind to think about what design touches you can add to your new structure to make it uniquely your own. One of the best ways to add style and differentiate your shed from your neighbors is by adding a shed cupola. However, in addition to a great style feature, cupolas have many beneficial uses that can ensure longevity for your shed or garage. Below you will find our favorite pros of roof cupolas:

  • Useful For Ventilation: Cupolas were originally created for barns so that fresh air could be ventilated to the livestock inside. Even if you don’t plan to house livestock in your new shed or garage, having adequate ventilation is still an important way to allow heat and moisture to escape from your new structure. When working correctly, a roof cupola can keep air circulating to protect stored items from mildew and mold.
  • Added Light– Cupolas can help to add light to your otherwise dreary shed or garage interior.
  • Not Mass Produced– When you partner with Sunrise Structures for your shed or garage cupola, we make sure that it is handcrafted with integrity and old-fashioned hard work. All our cupola models can be detailed and sized correctly for your outdoor structure.
  • Unique Design– With their unique designs, shed and roof cupolas are a great way to spruce up an otherwise ordinary structure for the better. We stock a wide selection of cottage-style weathervanes that you can view today!

As you can see, there are many unique benefits to installing a cupola on your shed or garage. If you are interested in adding one of our many weathervane styles to your current or future build, contact us today!
