The right barn roof decoration can change a humdrum barn into a work of art. Whether you have a traditional barn, stable, chicken coop, or pole barn, our custom cupolas and copper weathervanes can add style and flair to your barn. Built from high-quality materials - such as Azek vinyl, Western Red Cedar, painted steel, and 24 gauge copper - our cupolas and weathervanes can withstand time and Mother Nature for decades without losing their charm and beauty. Take a look at some of our finished projects:
This beautiful 65’ barn features three matching Hartford style cupolas. The arched double louvers provide plenty of ventilation and the concave copper roofs complement the slope of the barn roof. In order to get a balanced look on this long barn, the customers chose a 48” center cupola flanked by 32” cupolas on either side.
These customers loved the traditional “red barn” look. Our Azek vinyl cupolas not only offer long-lasting beauty with minimal maintenance, they can be easily painted to match your barn. The copper roof really pops against the red, and the window panes of the cupola perfectly mirror the multiple windows on the barn.
This 30’ barn features multiple roofs and gorgeous natural wood. The 36” Carlisle window cupola adds another layer of beauty to this barn as well as plenty of natural sunlight. A polished copper duck weathervane is the perfect finishing touch to this barn.
This magnificent barn features our most popular cupola, the CNC window style. This simple yet elegant design perfectly complements any architectural style and comes in a wide range of sizes. Three 28” cupolas are the proper proportions for this 50’ roof.
Even commercial barns need beautiful roof decorations! We can create custom cupolas to meet any size and design specifications, as we did for the renowned Highlander Training Center in Sulphur Springs, TX (pictured above). Over the course of several months we designed, built, delivered and installed seven cupolas to the customer’s exact specifications. Each cupola has both windows and louvers to provide both natural sunlight and plenty of ventilation to the training arena and horse stalls.
Another popular barn roof decoration is the traditional weathervane. For centuries farmers have used weathervanes to predict the weather and add a personalized flair to their barns. Our adorable Hen & Chick Weathervane is perfect for chicken coops, featuring a mother hen with four chicks perched on the directionals. We also have a brand new Horse and Colt Weathervane that is the perfect size for large stables or barns. This weathervane is available in black aluminum and polished or verdigris copper.

A Tour of Our Finished Garage Cupolas with Weathervanes
Our first stop is this 24' wide 2-car garage featuring the popular 30" Concave with Louvers cupola. The louvers have a stylish eyelid arch and the straight roof perfectly complements the nearby chimney. The cupola is topped with a Flying Duck weathervane which measures 22"L x 20"H x 27"W (wingspan). This garage cupola and weathervane add much needed ventilation to the garage while adding visual interest to the single-story roofline.
Next we have a 30' wide garage with a steeply pitched roof sporting a 36" Alexander cupola. The Alexander cupola is from our Signature Series and has arched custom molding on the louvers with a center keystone accent. The taper of the concave roof draws the eye to our Fisherman weathervane, who is in the process of netting his catch.
Ahoy Matey! This mighty Whale weathervane with patina finish is the icing on the cake of a beautiful garage cupola. Perfectly sized for this 28' wide 2-car garage, our 36" Carlisle cupola features beautiful paned windows that allow a cupola lantern to light up the night. We added extra corner trim to the base of this cupola to complement the trim around the garage doors and windows.
All of our garage cupolas come in three easy-to-assemble parts. Decorative cupolas, like this one, are placed right on top of the shingles, so there's no need to cut into your roof. The windows of this 32" cupola match the windows of the garage doors, forming a cohesive look. Topped with a frolicking Fox weathervane, this cupola adds one-of-a-kind style to this garage.

Designed to emphasize the apex of a roof, gable, spire, or cupola, copper finials are typically placed on the tallest part of a building to accent its height. Finials are a great way to add a distinctive flair to any roofline, piercing the sky with their elegant spires. At Valley Forge Cupolas, our beautiful collection of copper finials is inspired by royalty, Arthurian legend and famous cities. Take a look at some of our favorite finials below to see why finials have enjoyed tremendous popularity for centuries!
The Enduring Appeal of Copper Finials
Copper is a fantastic metal, able to form and hold complex shapes while maintaining durability and strength. It is also extremely corrosion resistant. Over time, copper develops a beautiful patina that protects it from the elements, allowing it to last for decades. Copper is a lightweight metal, so our finials are easy to mount and don't put a strain on your roof.
Copper Finials from Our Collection
These two elegant spires capture the classic Victorian finial styles. As elegant and mysterious as its namesake, Morgan Le Fay, the Morgana finial is available in three heights: 28", 40", and a breathtaking 53". Our tallest finial, the Morgana makes a bold, dramatic statement on any roofline. On the right we have our newest finial, the Aragon. Available in 28" or 40", its thin, tapered height is the perfect complement to traditional homes.
Reminiscent of the lances carried by valiant knights, our Avalon and Lancelot finials are inspired by Arthurian legend. The petite Avalon is perfect for small garages, sheds or cabins. The Lancelot finial fits nicely on our small to medium cupolas or homes with short rooflines.
Our finials are available in a variety of finishes, including verdigris. If you don't want to wait for patina to develop naturally, or want to be sure of a uniform patinated color, the verdigris finish is an excellent option.
Many of our beautiful copper finials are now available with decorative copper roof mounts, shown above. When selecting the height of your finial, factor in whether it will be mounted directly to your roof or on top of a cupola. Determining the right size finial for your home will depend on a combination of factors, including the height and length of your roof and distance perspective. The experts at Valley Forge Cupolas can answer all your finial questions and help you choose the perfect height for your home.

These materials not only offer great durability and style; they can be easily painted or stained to match your home.

Selecting and ordering my CRC 32" cupola could not have been any easier with the help of Beverly and her husband. I forwarded pictures of my garage so they could photo-shop the image and the outcome was phenomenal. They offer much more assistance than just taking your order, and I received a quality product, packaged very well to avoid shipment damage, and it really looks great. Good people to work with!! - Terry W. (cupola pictured above)
From the get-go, it was a pleasure dealing with Beverly! The cupola was custom designed and delivered to me on time and in perfect condition!

The CNC cupola complements nearly any building, with large windows to add much needed light to an attic or workspace. A bonus for DIY-ers is that our cupolas are easy to install, whether decorative or functional.
For this attached garage, the homeowners chose a 32" Double Louver cupola with a concave copper roof and flared base that blends seamlessly into the slope of the roof. Topped with a 28" Morgana finial, this cupola is an elegant finishing touch to a 26' two-car garage.
These rustic garages show how easily our cedar cupolas can be stained to match the finish of your home.

Available with arched or straight windows to match the other windows in your barn, these cupolas can easily be incorporated into existing structures.
A must for large barns, the Salem cupola provides maximum ventilation to a structure. The height of the Salem cupola makes it the perfect central cupola for long rooflines, with smaller, complementary cupolas on either end for a balanced look. It can also stand alone as the sole cupola on tall barns, creating a graceful peak to the roofline.
Traditional and distinguished, the Winchester looks at home on any barn. The octagonal design and concave roof provide a touch of elegance, while the tall, paned windows allow warm sunshine to flood the building. Available with straight or arched windows, the Winchester cupola is the perfect combination of form and function.

The right cupola placement can make all the difference on your home. On the surface, cupola placement appears straightforward: place the cupola in the center of the roof. But different roofs require different considerations. For example, a long roofline may require a cupola on either end as opposed to a central cupola. Here are a few examples of proper cupola placement to help you visualize a cupola on your home.
Examples of Proper Cupola Placement
For this L-shaped home, the customer chose two complementary cupolas. For the main building, a large, window cupola takes center stage, providing a beautiful focal point. The smaller louver cupola on the wing is both appropriate for the shorter, one-story roofline and echoes the main cupola instead of vying for attention.
Cupola placement on this home is complicated by multiple roofs, a double garage and a pair of dormers. Centering the window cupola between the dormers creates a cohesive look that echoes the peaks of the roofs and brings balance to the roofline.
For houses with multiple roofs and stories, it is best to place your cupola in the center of the highest roof, even if it is not perfectly centered on the house. As the highest point of your building, the cupola will draw the eye up and tie all the elements of your home together.
For this elegant estate, the homeowners wanted matching cupolas for the house and three car garage. Opting for two cupolas on either end of the main home allowed the cupolas to all be the same size, creating a seamless, unified look.
This octagonal cupola is perfectly centered on the attached garage, and its round shape provides a nice contrast to the sharp lines of the architecture. The peak of the cupola draws even with the peak of the roof on the house, keeping an even sightline across the buildings and composing a complete picture.
This quaint ranch offers a long, unbroken roof line, opening up the possibilities when it comes to cupola placement. A slightly larger central cupola with smaller, matching cupolas on either end of the roof provides perfect balance and maximum charm.
The function of a cupola can also determine its placement. For barns and stables, cupolas often provide much needed ventilation to keep livestock healthy. Opting for multiple smaller cupolas rather than a large single cupola optimizes air flow and improves the air quality inside the barn.
