It’s no surprise, then, that DIY cupola kits have grown in popularity. But But overestimating your DIY skills can lead to headaches and higher costs than if you had gone with a professional the beginning. Here are three major reasons you should skip the cupola kits and come straight to the professionals at Valley Forge Cupolas and Weathervanes:
- Things are not always what they seem online: A quick Google search of “online shopping fails” shows how difficult it can be to gauge a product’s actual appearance based solely on pictures and written descriptions. When they say “green,” do they mean sage, forest, or emerald? Will the molding really match the molding on my home? All too often, it’s not until a cupola kit is assembled and on your roof that you realize it really doesn’t fit your home. That is why we offer free digital quotes, so that you can see exactly how a cupola will complement your home before you purchase.
- Substandard materials: The relatively inexpensive price tag on cupola kits is often due to its poor quality materials. They often use plywood, cheap metals that will rust over time, and high-density polyethylene (the same plastic used to make milk cartons). Valley Forge Cupolas offers quality that can’t be beat. Our cupolas are designed to last, made from maintenance-free Azek vinyl, high-quality Western Red Cedar, painted steel, and durable 24 gauge copper.
- Poor construction: If a cupola is not built and installed correctly, it can lead to serious problems, including water damage to your roof and attic. Our cupolas are carefully designed and constructed to ensure the highest-quality standards are met.
