The history of cupolas can be traced back to 8th century Islamic architecture where weather shields were placed over minarets to allow venting to mosques while keeping the weather out. The combinations of high ceiling and opening windows proved to be the best way to air the structures out. 

Cupolas gained popularity in Europe towards the end of the 17th century and became the rage in the Mid-Eastern United States during the post revolutionary period. Today, it is difficult to drive through Virginia or Kentucky and find a century home without one.

Because it can save you thousands of dollars. Our venting cupolas provide a natural flow of warm, moist air in an upward direction through the louvered sides of the cupola. This free-flow of air helps eliminate wood rot, mildew, peeling paint and musty odours by flushing out moisture. It is estimated that as many as 70% of the homes built in the last 20 years are not ventilated properly. Our cupolas serve as an essential and efficient means of ventilation.
