Functional and Practical
Originally, cupolas were designed with a practical purpose in mind. Cupolas were used to provide necessary ventilation to the attic spaces of houses. With the various changes in weather, lack of ventilation would create moisture buildup inside the house. This moisture often led to mold and long-term structural damage to the interior of the house. With a small vented cupola on the peak of the roof, air was able to escape and prolong the integrity of the house for years to come. Give your attic space the fresh air it needs with an elegant, vented house cupola.
Later, as house cupolas became more practical, people began to request cupolas that added an aesthetic appearance to the house as well. As the cupolas developed, different designs emerged. Variations in roof style, colors, and size provided people with the opportunity to find something that matched their house specifically. Even though they did not need ventilation, many people pursued house cupolas mainly for the beauty that they house to their house overall. Today, house cupolas are still common and add a distinguished beauty regardless of where they are placed.
