Cupolas have been gracing American stables for hundreds of years. Initially added to barns to help differentiate one family farm from another, horse barn cupolas quickly became an integral part of a stable’s construction. That is because the most dangerous thing to a barn and its occupants is warm, humid, stagnant air. Moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can lead to wood rot and jeopardize the structural integrity of the barn. This unhealthy air can also cause horses, cows, and other livestock to become sick or die. Horse barn cupolas help ventilate the humid air, excess heat, and noxious fumes that otherwise build up inside the stable. They can also add natural light to help brighten up a stable and keep hay lofts well ventilated to prevent moldy hay or hay fires.
At Valley Forge Cupolas and Weathervanes, we can provide you with the high-quality cupolas your barn needs, no matter the size or number. We can design custom cupolas for a new commercial building, like we did for the renowned Highlander Training Center in Sulphur Springs, TX, or provide you with cupolas that complement an existing structure.
Our metal Sundance cupolas come in a variety of designs, and the roof and base come in 25 different colors to match any color combination. We even cut out your roof pitch on the Sundance models so that you don’t have to worry about needing special cutting tools.
All of our cupolas are built by skilled and dedicated Pennsylvania craftsmen using durable materials designed to last a lifetime. The majority of our cupolas are built from Azek vinyl, a high-performance material that can withstand even the harshest weather. It never needs to be stained or sanded; is resistant to mold mildew, stains and scratches; and can’t be damaged by termites or rot. It can also be painted to match your stable, as you can see in the photo above.
We also have all the accessories your horse barn cupola needs, from lighting to weathervanes. Horse weathervanes gained widespread popularity during the mid 19th century, thanks to the immense popularity of horse racing at the time, and remain popular to this day. The majority of horse weathervane designs are based on the famous racehorse Black Hawk, who starred in some of the most popular Currier & Ives prints of all time.
