They are also available in a wide variety of styles and colors, and they can even be customized if needed.

Decorative Accessories

We have no shortage of decorative building accessories, many of which can help to upgrade the aesthetic of historic buildings. These accessories include the following:


Cupolas are popular on the tops of barns, churches, and historic commercial buildings. They act as a centerpiece to these buildings’ roofs, drawing in the eye and adding an aesthetic flair. We manufacture cupolas in a variety of styles, and we can even customize a cupola specifically for you. Give us a call to discuss your needs!


A dormer is a section of the roof that juts out past the rest of the roof. It often contains a window and adds a great deal of depth to a roof’s aesthetic. We supply dormers of all kinds, and we can even recreate dormers that are already in existence. If you need metal dormers for your property, we’re the company to call.


Cornices help add style to the upper portions of building exteriors. They’re prominent on historical buildings, but they can effectively be used on buildings of all types.

If you’re interested in installing metal cornices on your building, we here at Chicago Metal Supply are the people to see. We offer a variety of styles, and we can also create custom cornices if needed. Call us today to discuss your options!


Looking to let a little natural lighting in through the roof of your building? If so, you should consider installing skylights. These decorative windows will bring a whole new element to your property, helping it to stand out among the others.
