About New Concept Louvers Inc.
New Concept Louvers Inc. is a manufacturer of maintenance free Copulas, Louvers, and sign exterior accessories.
To save you the trouble, we ship our Cupolas with the base pitch already cut out of the base to conform to the pitch of your roof. So we need to know your roof pitch. Here's how to determine it:
The measurements are taken from on top of the roof. Simply mark a level at 12", hold it perfectly level and measure from the roof surface to your 12" mark, this will give you the RISE. (Be careful with this method as a roof with many layers of shingles, or any type of roofing that is irregular can give you less than precise results).
Custom Copper Turret Caps are hands down the most gorgeous way to complete any Turret. These can be made of different metals if you are looking for something other than Copper, and come in just about any style or size to fit any roof pitch. These beauties come with a bracket so they're easy to install. Weather Vane, Finial or Spire options are plentiful and will surely add the finishing touch.

You may have noticed how wood Cupolas tend to disintegrate over time and may need to either be replaced or painted every few years. Not ours! We manufacture beautiful Cupolas that don't require painting and will last for many years to come. We start with a sturdy wood base then clad it completely in aluminum, copper, steel, galvanized or other metals. There are over 450 aluminum colors to choose from and the designs are endless. If you want to use your Cupola for ventilation, you will want to go with one of our Louvered models that come pre-screened to keep pests and debris out while reducing both heating and cooling costs year round by allowing your roof to breath, which also extends the life of your roof.
Our innovative Windowed models add a touch of class by day and set off a beautiful glow at night when combined with our accent light kits. These are an attractive ornamental conversation piece and are not meant for venting.
Either model is available in many shapes, sizes and a wide range of colors which are sure to be the finishing touch! Check out our stock models online or call us for more technical information and options.
It's true! Cupolas are not only beautiful, but an excellent way to help ventilate your attic. Cupolas sit on the peak of the roof, so as the heat rises it can escape through all sides of the Cupola! This means the heat will be able to flow out in summer months and the moisture and condensation won't build up in winter. Both heat and moisture are culprits in rotting issues to your roof, trusses and insulation. So by placing a Cupola on the top of the roof and adding a couple gable end Louvers, you can create some great air flow to prevent this type of damage, as well as prolong the life of your roof. Functional and appealing, Cupolas are popular and serve a very useful purpose!
