Installing a Cupola onto NEW CONSTRUCTION or a RE-ROOF:
We recommend using a Curb when installing your Cupola onto a new roof. This allows you to run your flashing up the sides of the Curb, complete your shingles or other roofing materials, then drop your Cupola base section right over the Curb and just like that, all the potential water penetration problems are taken care of! But the best part about it, is the fact that everything is hidden underneath the Cupola base, so it doesn't affect the appearance.
Installing a Cupola onto an EXISTING roof:
When installing your Cupola onto your existing roof, we will build a mounting cleat right inside the base section of the Cupola and provide the necessary hardware for you to install it. You would simply secure the base section to the roof line, add a bead of caulk around the exterior of the base where it meets the roof, then add your windowed or louvered sections and top it off with the roof. It's that easy.
