Our Maintenance Free Cupola Materials
We also offer maintenance free cupolas built from gorgeous Western Red Cedar. Cedar is known for its stunning color and extremely fine, even grain. Because cedar grows in damp climates, it has developed natural defenses against rot, water damage and fungal growth. Western Red Cedar doesn’t swell, twist or warp when exposed to weather fluctuations, and its natural oils actually help to preserve the wood and deter insects and decay. This wood is also pitch and resin free, which allows it to hold a wide variety of finishes and stains.
We roof our cupolas with copper both for its natural beauty and its excellent corrosion resistance. Unlike most other metals, copper doesn’t rust or decay when exposed to water. Instead, it develops a beautiful patina over time which actually acts as a protective coating, which is why copper roofs can last for decades.
