Cupola Shingles

11-18-08 003 We’ve stayed busy trying to keep ahead of winter weather at the Dodge County Courthouse in Mantorville. Our focus this week has been on getting the copper shingles installed on the cupola dome. The old covering was painted and not particularly 100_1163 attractive. The new copper shingles look handsome and should serve the building well for decades. The shingles will not remain shiny copper for long, as we will be treating them with a chemical to tone the shiny appearance down to a soft brown patina.
