The X-Factor: Cupolas

Know More About Cupolas

We do more than just provide roofing solutions. At Cypress Metals, we go out of our way to find things that’ll make houses pop. In an earlier post, we talked about the charm of crown moldings. This time, we’ll talk about the allure of cupolas.

The Cupola

A cupola is a small, often dome-like structure on top of a building. In old structures, it serves as a lookout post or a place to let in light and air. It may not sound like much by reading the description, but it looks impressive once it’s up on the roof. It’s a small addition that makes a big difference.

Cupolas often appear on top of churches as belfries and belvederes; the association immediately sparks interest and makes the roof a focal point in the street – maybe even the neighborhood. Generating interest and standing out are two of the most important things a house can do, apart fro providing safety and shelter. This is because the value of a home depends on demand, and people will only want a house if it’s interesting.

The Architecture Trinity

Few things in architecture generate function, style, and interest all at the same time. This is because people already know about most of the things that are functional and stylish, so they aren’t very interesting. It’s not every day that homeowners find a slightly obscure roofing implement they can apply to their homes. That way, the house becomes unique, and can even become a small landmark.

If you want this kind of positive attention directed at your home, don’t wait another second and call us now.
