Assembling your cupola on your own is admirable, but never at the expense of your own health and safety. Whenever placing a cupola, it’s important to familiarize yourself with proper safety precautions. For example, never attempt to install a cupola in adverse weather conditions. Be sure to wear proper clothing and ensure the stability of your roof before beginning the project.
Most cupola materials we use require little to no maintenance. However, like all things on your own that are exposed to outdoor elements, everything gets dirty with time. Follow the specific instructions provided for your type of cupola. Some types of cupolas can be power washed alongside the rest of your home, however, it’s important to ensure appropriate pressure to avoid damaging the material.
