If you’re interested in purchasing a cupola, you probably want to make sure it’s made out of the best material possible before you commit. When it comes to materials used for cupola construction, there are usually several options. Today we’ll be exploring the benefits of Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC, and what makes it such a great choice for cupola composition. So let’s take a closer look at PVC cupolas!
PVC, known also as vinyl, is a relatively inexpensive building material. Easily processed and readily available, it has replaced materials like wood, metal, rubber and concrete in a variety of industries and applications throughout the world. Using PVC in cupola construction reduces the cost of materials without sacrificing quality. High durability and maintenance-free properties mean even more savings in the long run when choosing a PVC cupola.
Exterior buildings are often at the mercy of the elements; prone to warping, rusting, rotting and other physical damage over time. Luckily, PVC is a champion of weatherability! It can easily withstand conditions that might seriously harm other materials. This is great news for cupolas, which are exposed year round to harsh elements like snow, ice, wind and rain. If you choose a PVC cupola, you’ll get more than just a beautiful cupola that’s with you when the sun is shining; you’ll have a cupola that can withstand all manner of bad weather.
Most buildings require a fair amount of upkeep to preserve them. This can mean hours of peeling, chipping, repainting and staining; not to mention the high cost of quality maintenance materials and labor. As an alternative, PVC requires very little attention to stay in tip-top shape. A simple cleaning every year, and your PVC cupola will be as good as new!
In addition to the above qualities, PVC can be molded and fashioned to look like just about any other material on the market. This means you’ll get all the resilience and low maintenance of PVC without having to sacrifice good looks. With all of these advantages, it’s hard not to justify a PVC cupola.
