Custom Cupola With Shingles

Step-by-Step

This custom shingled cupola was installed on a garage that was attached to a cape-style house. Here’s how we built this custom shingled cupola, step by step!

Step 1: The saddle, which gets installed and flashed to the roof.

Step 2: The base is installed, complete with a generous 8″ access hole with PVC plug for ease of wiring and installation.

Step 3: The window unit, complete with wiring for a hanging lantern, is installed next.

Step 4: The pre-roofed top goes on, shingled to match the house. Copper was also an option, but the homeowner preferred this look.

Step 5: The cupola is crated with care, securely packaged and shipped to the job site.
