The Project

From the exterior, nothing appeared to be wrong with this cupola or the surrounding roof especially since the house was fairly new- only about 10 years old. But the inside of the home was a different story. This cupola was completely rotted, so we had to perform a full restoration.

When installing any roof, attention to detail is necessary since there are various types of roofs. To ensure the best result we use the right trade partner. Here is what we did:

  • Removed the rotted/damaged material
  • Sheathed the base and started on the sill
  • Waterproofed the base
  • Rebuilt the sills out of Boral
  • Installed the aluminum pan flashing

We rebuilt the cupola’s base in place, salvaging as much of the upper portion as possible. We set up temporary roof protection made from plywood and 2-by stock. After removing the existing peel-and-stick, we found that roughly half of the cupola base’s sheathing and framing was rotted beyond repair.
