Sizing Guide Cupolas and Weathervanes

Selecting the Ideal Cupola Size

Proportions are important when choosing the ideal size cupola for your building. Generally, a cupola that has one inch of base for every foot of uninterrupted roofline will provide a pleasing accent. For example, a Model 220 (22" base) would look best on a 22' uninterrupted roofline. Placing a similar sized cardboard box on the roofline and viewing it from the ground is another way to determine what size and location are best for your particular situation.

  • Model 220 is the most popular size and is great for mid-sized buildings such as garages and small barns and storage buildings.
  • Model 320 is the perfect size for large building such as barns, utility buildings and larger garages.

A combination of cupola sizes can also be used.

Choosing the Ideal Number of Cupolas

Again, one inch of cupola base for every foot of uninterrupted rooline is a good guideline. For example, if you have 22' of uninterrupted roofline, you could install one Model 220 (22" base).
