A turret is a small tower that extends above a building, typically at a corner location. A dome is an architectural element that resembles the hollow upper half of a sphere. Whereas, a cupola is a small, most often dome-like, structure on top of a building.
Although purely decorative, these type of structures still endure all weather conditions and therefore are susceptible to deterioration. Detroit Cornice & Slate have replaced or refurbished dozens of domes and turrets, including cupolas. Our craftsmen and engineers have the knowledge of these structures that allows them to be once again beautiful and functional.
