Cupolas for Metal Buildings
Plyco Cupolas for Barns, Metal Buildings and More
A cupola, whose root base means “small dome” in Latin, is not only an aesthetically pleasing addition to most any post frame constructed building or ranch style home, but it also has a few practical purposes as well. Most people think that cupolas are merely decorative, and their only function of any note is to hold a weathervane, but this is simply not the case.

How Cupolas Help Control Ventilation
Originally, cupolas served as lookouts. However, it was soon discovered that they were extremely valuable for ventilation control. Science teaches us that warm air rises making cupolas perfect for fresh air circulation within the structure.
Not only will this make the temperatures a little more bearable in the summer, but the resulting lower humidity will eliminate moisture damage, rot, mold, and other harmful conditions that can deteriorate a horse stall or other post frame structure over a period of time.
Cupola Size Guidelines and Products
The standard rule for cupola size is easy to remember. Typically, for every one foot of roof ridge line, you will need one inch of cupola. Plyco offers several different models of 24 inch, 36 inch, and 48 inch cupolas. Our cupolas come economically packaged to save you money on shipping costs, are made of the highest quality materials.
We’ve got a wide variety of decorative weathervanes to choose from. They assemble in minutes provided your rough framing is done correctly. Cupolas for sale from Plyco can also be ordered with weather vanes, custom colors or even lite kits.
